    for hunting purposes? I shoot a hoyt xtec 70 lb draw 27.5 in arrows. I hear alot about the gold tips, easton axis st nano, and carbon express. Let me know your opinions on these and any others that you all think would be good for hunting with my setup. Thanks

    If you shoot a Beman Realtree MFX or an Easton Axis you will need the 400 spine. That is the same set up I shoot. If you are interested in the AXIS check out the Beman's I just mentioned, same arrow and about $30 to $40 less per dozen.
    With a 27.5 inch arrow you are right on the edge of shooting either a 340 or 400. I guess the spine you pick will depend on what weight broadhead you shoot.

    All the above arrows are great but for me Carbon Force X-Weaves just can't be beat very tuff arrow. And they are at a very good price.:peace:

    I shoot Carbon express Terminator Lt. Selects, with blazer 2" vanes. Cost is60.00 to 75.00 per doz., depending on how you shop. Excellent quality control and straightness standards. I cut, installed inserts, and fletched 18 within the last 6 months. They were bought from 2 different sources. 17 of them weighed exactly 400 grains with a 100 grain tip installed. One weighed 402 grains. I used all materials out of the box without pre checking weight. Also, I prefer unpainted shafts with no fancy coatings, like the Buff tuff that my CX 300's have. The Terminators are much easier to refletch than the CX 300's. The carbon surface doesn't scrape as easily as the coatings do. I also step up one spine level, if my suggested spine falls at the top of a given rating.

    Someone already mentioned the Radial X-weaves but I will suggest another arrow that I have used previously to those.

    Easton Lightspeed 400's

    i just switched from gt hunters to st axis nano n-fused , and the main reason is that these axis arrows are about 1.6 grams per inch heavier giving a little more penetration. also, last year i was shooting a tomcat and have upgraded to the vectrix xl.with the hoyt i'm not concerned with the heavier arrow being slightly slower.with the tomcat i just couldnt help being mindful of a heavier arrow shooting slower,even though everybody preachs that speed aint everything.the axis i chose are a 400 spine , my dl is 30". i got 1 dozen, orange and black tiger striped wraps with black and white tiger vanes and white x nocks, totalled out to 119.65 at the register.
