    I've heard nothing but good about the Carbon Express's. The Goldtip I hear is a different story. Not tried either for myself though I'm a Radial X-Weave kinda fella. So my suggestion is try them both and then decide for yourself.

    The Blue Streak is a very good shaft. They are just an updated version of the Maxima which was an awesome arrow.

    IMO ALL arrows are over priced.....just like bows and sights and releases.

    ACCs which I love for hunting cost $80 back in the 90s now that are $160...a few years ago Carters weren't close to $180. All these crap sights selling for all this money has driven up the price of good sights like Spot Hogs, a Hogg It used to be $150 now with a wrap its $240.

    Those arrows have gone up some but not much....and after shooting them and Maximas....I would pay for them over just about any all carbon shaft on the market. The only reason I went with ACCs this year over the Blue Streak or Maxima hunter is because I got a BRAND new uncut doz for $82. Over priced or not they are good arrows.

    The radial X weave is as BS as the weight forward/stiffer spine on 2/3rds of the shaft claim. CX is the most hyped/overpriced shaft in the History of the Sport.

    Series 22UL silver label is a straight forward good shaft with no BS claims and is only $70 UDS a dozen. If you cut your shafts on both ends you effectively get Pro grade. The GT nocks suck, but thats what 2115 Easton G nock Bushings are for.

    i use thin plastic grocery bags or bread baga as thread locking type tape to create a gasket between the bushing and the shaft, I trim the excess off with a lighter.
