Another arrow you may want to look at is the Carbon Express Predator ll's. the .336 spine weighs 9.7 gpi and they cost $ 50 a doz shafts, cut a bit off each end and you'll change the .006 arrow into a .003 arrow. Nocks and inserts are included.

Ive been using Expedition or so called GT low grade 7595 for 7 years now. I cut them on bothe ends and cant tell the difference. good hunting shaft, reasonable, tough, and flies good.

Easton has really jacked up theyre prices lately, discontinued some really poular shfts like the Beman 9.3( the working mans FatBoy). Ive gone to Gold Tip and never looked back.

i will stick with GT arrows no matter what reason u can get direct straight to GT, also beaman and easton have to get at dealer or other good sport store

i would love to see GT make a sample FMJ, NANO, and other plus a speedest arrow like carbon impact, but i'm glad that GT already made a KE series.

also i have read GT have problem when someone get bohning nock to fit it cause loose or not fit, so i think GT and bohning would have to work to get all arrows to fit 1 brand bohning stuffs
