Default What arrows do you shoot?

I ve been using Easton Bowfires for years. They don't make them anymore. I am shopping around and I know the options are endless.

My draw weight is 60 pds and my arrows are 29 inches long. I only use them for practice and hunting.

Whats your go to arrow for hunting?

Gold tip hunters or hunter xts. Not anything special about them, just tend to work. The local shop carries them and i can buy them one at a time so if i break one I can go buy one more so i always have a full set

I am a Gold Tip fan. Velocity or Pierce is my two choices of the brand. I also shoot 60# but 27.5 DL and 400 spine works well for me, you may need a 340 spine.

Carbon Express Adrenaline. Use them for target and hunting.

But I have a feeling I shouldn't be. Don't see any Carbon Express in the list yet and wondering if they are no good.

I went back to aluminum arrows a couple of years back. I wanted the weight, pretty happy with them. I figured since pigs break most every arrow anyhow, why toss $20 per shaft? These cost me less than $4 ea

Solid, heavy arrow running 4mm to ensure maximum penetration. Is there a better hunting arrow on the market?

FND, I also use the titanium inserts that allow use of “normal” BH’s which are 125gr for my setup. This gives me a nice FOC number. Thoughts on use of normal vs deep six BH’s with these micro diameter shafts??

Just changed my setup. 58 pounds 28" draw shooting 27" Goldtip Velocity 340's with 100 gr. Brass inserts up front. Gives me the weight to still shoot Expendables if I choose, and the arrow is spined perfect for my setup. Big fan of Goldtips

i just switched to the Black Eagle Rampage and love them. Smaller diameter but still uses a insert as opposed to outsert which I like better JMO. They shoot great and are super strong and straight!

I just switched to hexx from fmj. After having fmj blow up twice last year. One on a tree which is no biggie, but one on a deer and that's no bueno. I like the hexx so far. It's shot my shed a time or 2. Lol
