Carbon Express Maxima XRZ for big game and the mossy oak arrows from Walmart for small game. The mossy oak arrows are cheap and surprisingly good

I saw a youtube video comparision by a younger guy who has no sponsorship from the big companies. He ranked the Wal Mart Mossy Oak arrows way up high with the expensive arrows. He thought they would be a flop and was really suprised by their performance. I might be wrong but I think he said they were made by Victory.
Thought about getting a coupla dozen of those for gut shooting hogs and such. I always carry some swine arrows with knock off rages.

I go from brand to brand from time to time trying to find the perfect arrow. And my go to arrows are normally gold tips of various “ flavors”. Usually hunter, pro, or trad. for price durability they are hard to beat.

Don't bend like FMJ's and are a little heavier than Maximas. Cheaper too. If I was shooting for money I might go with something else but for hunting they shoot great out of my set up.
