Bowhunting Arrows.
« on: December 26, 2018, 12:45:19 AM »
Hello again HW,

I am about to order some Easton arrows ans I just wanted to quickly ask you guys what arrows you personally shoot.

Never argue with a stupid person, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Iíve got a buddy who works at Cabelaís so he used his discount to buy me some of those Cabelaís stalker extreme arrows for Christmas. Same straightness and weight of my Eastonís and I canít tell the difference. He paid like $55 but a dozen is normally like $85. Theyíre Beman arrows with Cabelaís name. And Beman is made by Easton. Someday Iíll buy Axis or something, until then these group great at 70 yards!
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Gold Tip XT Hunter. Tough as nails, straight and good grain weight tolerance. Less than $10 each fletcher and under $95 a dozen raw shafts. I've shot arrows from Easton, Carbon Express and Gold Tip and don't think I'm switching again unless I can't get rid of an itch to try Victory Vap.

I shoot the Axis  n fused arrows and love them.  I don't think they make them any longer but they do make the axis line which are great arrows.  I agree you can't go wrong with most arrows these days.   :tup:

Gave the Easton hexx a go last season and was very impressed.  Shorter draw length so getting a high FOC and a reasonable overall weight can be tough.  50gr brass inserts and 125gr heads enabled me to shoot lights in the rear while still maintaining a high FOC.  Tough shaft to boot!

I shoot Victory vap elite 350. My dad shoots gold tip velocity pro. My buddy shoots gold tip hunter pro. I Put these arrows together for them. They are all great. I think victoryís carbon is a little better, but what matters most is tuning your bow to what ever arrow you get.

I have always advised guys/gals to try multiple arrows and arrow builds through your setup. Majority of the bows are so dang good these days and tuning them is incredibly easy. Therefore for a long time now I have believed in just tuning the arrow to your bow and not the other way around. That being said try multiple different arrows and spines.
But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had eyes to see.

I shoot Easton Bloodlines, when you are altitude gifted and long draw length you quickly find out that spine will limit your arrow choices very dramatically.

Lots of good advice and recommendations here. 

One of the most important factors is just getting the correct spine for your setup.  Some manufactures spines differ a bit, a 300 at one, might be a touch stiffer or weaker than other's 300.

The Gold Tip FACT weight system is one of the best screw in insert systems IMHO which is an added bonus for fine tuning everything, so that is what I usually go with and recommend. 

But to answer your question, right now Black Eagle Spartan's 250.  I got a deal I couldn't pass up so am giving them a test drive.
