Default What arrows are you using for 3d?

I am using Beman Speeds, 340 spine, S nock, with super swifts (1.87"). The arrows weigh 358gr. I am curious what others are using.

I still like my Beman Speeds.
But I am thinking of trying CE Blue Streaks.
I have a Harvest Time (I bought 1 to try) that flies very nice, similar to my Speeds).

Still shooting speeds. For whatever reason they hit higher on the target and they are 3 grains heavier than the Harvest Time arrow. They have a higher FOC...and I little stiffer spine (340 vs 350). That is the only thing I could figure.

I tried some CE Blue Streaks today. They are very nice. Hit identical to my Speeds at 30. I am going to see what groups better at 60-80. They are a good deal more than the Speeds. I will see if they are worth the money.

Well if I find a 3D local it will be my PSE Carbon Force X-Weave 300. I still have a few dozen to go through before buying other shafts.

Shot the CE Blues Streaks vs the Speeds at 60+....
Overall, I noticed improvement in my groups with the Blue Streaks.
I will try this a few more times, but so far I really like them.

Any one shoot the Mach 5's?
