    Well guys and gals, the time has come to get some new arrows and I'm looking for some advice. I am shooting a Mathews Drenalin at approx. 74 lbs. and 28" draw length. Keep in mind I don't really want to break the bank! Give me the good, the bad, and the ugly on what you like or don't like and why. Oh, this is for a hunting shaft and I will using 100 grain broadheads and probably Blazers (maybe FOB's). Thanks!

    Take a GOOD look at the Victory line of arrows. Some of the most consistant and toughest arrows made today.

    I shoot carbon express terminator light selects. 70.00 doz. tyd from ecmbowhunter. I just ordered unfinished shafts a few days ago. Go to carbon express web page and you'll find the straightness and weight tolerance is second only to competion shafts. I avoid anything with a coating or painted surface because the carbon express carbon shafts are much easier to refletch without the fancy coatings.

    Check out the Radial X-Weaves 300, the three main arrows are the hunter, predator, and the pro. they range in price from 60 a dozen, to 120 a dozen for the pros. Just a word of caution on the Victory arrows, we have had a problem with the nock end of the arrow splitting for no apparent reason.

    I used beman MFX 400s last season. They are a little heavier, for good KE and fly well for me out of a 71# bow and 28" DL. They were $72 per doz. @ LAS. Beman ICS Hunters are great arrows too, for $60 per12. :cool:

    With my SB 29" 70 lbs, I shoot plain black Axis 400 cut to 26.75" with blazer vanes. I get about 295 to 300 fps. Very good penatration with this setup and either wasp jak-hammer 1 1/8" cut broadheads or grim reaper razor tip.
