    Default Best hunting arrows?

    what are your guys opinions on what the best hunting arrow is? My vote goes for the Easton FMJ's.

    Sorry if I was misunderstood. We are all allowed our opinion, just wanted him to explain why he thinks they are the best, for disscussion.

    Sorry about not explaining. I feel that there isn't a more durrable arrow on the market that I have seen. They also make a passthru effortless.

    Default Goldtip XT

    Very reasonable and tough as nails.

    All four arrows are complete pass throughs and still shootable. One right in the shoulder and still in tack from deer here.

    I really don't have one favorite. I have Maximas, Axis, Black Max's, Hunters, Ventures, and quite a few aluminums. I'm just now making up a doz GT Entradas for my son's GF for Christmas. I've had as many passthroughs with the fast/light arrows as the slim/heavier arrows. I wish I could wack a few with the recurve and compare.

    I like the Axis shafts or ACCs for hunting.

    I use Carbon Express Terminator Lt. Selects. $65 a doz. I don't believe any carbon arrow would have survived where these haven't. I'm still shooting both arrows used in deer kills this year. These have less wieght variance than the Vapor pro's I tried. I'll be checking out Victory's Vforce V-3's next.

    Ding ding ding................We have a winner. I have XT's that have been thru 2 and 3 deer. Spin test and resharpen and they are right back in the quiver. I have had very few broken. Out of the 8 I've killed in the last few years I have only lost 1 arrow.

    Same here. Do you save each arrow after the shot or just clean them up after each season?


    P.S. Have you had any luck with the bag of stuff behind the arrows? I ordered some last year or the year before and I haven;t used it yet!
    Sniper mode is on!



    One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.

    Heck I clean, inspect, resharpen, and it is right back in the quiver for the next day as long as it is still straight and free of defects.
