    Cool Are Easton Carbon Arrows good?

    I would like to know if I am shooting 61 lbs. with the Matthews Chill...question what kind of arrows give me the best set-up to get more speed?:

    What are you using them for? I would suggest different arrows for 3D or hunting. (unless you want to use 3D as hunting practice) I will not sacrifice a minimum amount of arrow weight for a little extra speed in a hunting arrow; pure 3D knock yourself out.

    If for purely speed I would probably go with the Litespeeds, or whatever they are calling them this year.

    Easton makes some great arrows designed for any application. They have arrows designed for all out speed, as well as arrows that hold higher grains per inch weight that are extremely effective for hunting. For speed, as stated about the Lightspeeds (or current model thereof) are excellent, however I would not recommend them for hunting situations. Many have used them for hunting without issues, but I prefer a slightly heavier arrow for more k.e. When it comes to a solid hunting arrow, I use the Axis or Axis FMJ's, they may not give you 300 fps, but they hit hard and make your bow deadly quiet.
