    In your opinion, what is the best shaft out today? And, why you think its the best.

    I should have specified that I was referring to hunting shafts.

    This is another one of those opinion topics, there are plenty of good ones. I took one last year with an ST Epic - total weight 426gr. I'm going out this fall with Victory's @ 312gr. I have no doubt it will do about as well. If one was hunting larger game I would prefer a heavier arrow, but for whitetail - it just isn't a big deal. I'm using the Victory's to get some speed for 3D and don't feel like changing my sights for a different arrow for hunting after shooting them all summer. I won't shoot one past 35yds period and then I better have a real good look, I much prefer 30 and in so KE loss is not an issue for me.

    I'll stick to my plain jane GT's, thank you. :cool: I have found that I cant shoot the difference between .003 and .001 straightness to justify the cost difference.:noidea:

    Terminator Lt. select by carbon express. 60- 75.00 per doz depending on how you shop. They seem to shoot and group just as well as maxima's and re-fletch easier without the fancy coating. I practice with the same arrows I hunt with. I've never had a deer notice my arrows with flouresent blazer vanes and no camo paint untill it's too late, anyway.
