What's your go to hunting arrow?
« on: February 21, 2020, 03:20:52 PM »
Just curious as to what people have tried out over the years.... Pros and cons. Seems like they are always coming out with something new each year.

Been using Easton axis 340 for over ten years without any issues. They do what I need an arrow to do well and I don’t see the need for anything “better”.

ICS Hunter 340.  Shuttles, before Muzzy was OK.   Tried Carb express and Maximas but Beman for me.   SHuttles fly best compared to old muzzy.
MAGA!  Again..

Black Eagle arrows for the past 3 years. I fletch my arrows with four vanes  (for many, many years), and tip em with Magnus Stingers. Accurate, deadly combination.

Easton Axis, Blackhawk Vapor pro & currently Black Eagle Spartan with either Rad's Ti Con 125gr or Kudu 125gr. All great arrows and I can honestly say I'm very impressed with how durable these Black Eagle arrows are.

Eason Bloodline, your choices are pretty limited when you have the wingspan of a bald eagle.

Gold tip hunter XT 300 spine have been good to me. Haven’t been able to break one yet even when shooting into dirt or logs. Only one I busted was perfectly robin hooded. But the arrow that struck the first arrow was still fine. Haven’t seen a reason to try anything else.
