All nice arrows though I have been hearing alot of bad stuff about GT arrows lately so if I had to choose between those three I would go with the Easton Fatboys they just fly so great out of my XT.

I must agree with Frank on this one, I have used Fatboys all season long for targets and they work really well. I am not much on speed, I am more for accuracy. That being said, I am getting 260 fps at 58lbs with my Fatboys and it does not bother me one bit. I shoot in the hunter class out to 40 yards and get good arrow flight with them. I shoot them with a 05' Switchback and would not trade arrows at this point, I seem to be hitting dead on with them. Try your local archery shop, most of the time they will have some that you can try and see how they shoot out of your bow. Do your own tests, such as thru paper and a chronograph, even see how they group at the archery shop. Just a little food for thought. Goodluck on finding that right target arrow.Switchback 28"

Glue in tips or screw in?
I use inserts and screw in tips with all my arrows have never been real sure what the benefit is of glue in tips. Unless you are just trying to lighten the weight of your arrow????????

first off I must say nice shooting as I dont want anyone jumping on me for something I might say later in the post
My question about the glue in tips was because the 12ringme said he shot in the hunter class, around here glue in tips are a no no in hunter class.
The biggest advantage I find w/them is your tips never get loose. I laugh when a guy has a loose tip and he tightens it while the arrow is still on the string, I am sure he didnt turn that nock at all right?
The other advantage is its a hundred grain head, not a hundred grain head and a ten grain insert.I cut things up and split them down!

Nice shooting there DB. No glue-ins allowed in hunter class here either. So guys is there any real advantage to glue-ins over screw-ins? Just wondering.
