 :dunno: I'm not into spending the overinflated $$ for the pricey arrows. For years I have been shooting the cheap Cabelas carbon arrows, with  standard Thunderhead 100.....Never had a problem killing a deer every year with that setup. :dunno:

Maxima Reds tipped with Slick Tricks for quite a few years now.  Killed a lot of animals, and I'm really happy with them.  North 40 sells the arrows individually for as cheap as the dozen price, so I just pick up about 4 a year which is about what I lose or break in the course of a year.  These are the best I've used for my 80# bow.

When I had my bow I used Easton carbon hexx 330 spine arrows. They had a tolerance of +/- 0.001. 31.5" with a schwacker at the tip I was zipping at 303 fps.

Bear motive 6.

Man I miss shooting bows.

I should do that, putting $20+ arrows through the fence makes me cry.

same setup minus the 4 fletch. Been really impressed with the Hexx so far.
