Title: Which Carbon Arrows?
Post by: Mad River on August 17, 2006, 10:56:23 AM
Well, the Parker Hornet was delivered last night; man what a nice light compact bow.  Anyhow, the little demon is set up with a Whisker Bicuit rest with an Inside Diameter for carbon arrows.  I have always used Easton Aluminum Shafts and have been pleased, but I guess it's time to move to carbons.  I have looked at the Easton Axis, Easton Epic, Carbon Force, Beman, and the others.

Does anyone here have a preference?  Any warnings?  Recommendations?

i like the easton lightspeeds and the axis hidden insert technology great broadhead alignment.  goldtip 55/75 are pretty good also the axis are alittle more pricey but i think they are worth it.

I may have to keep an eye out on e-bay for them but if arrows are like cars my Eastons are just like my '95 Saturn, they both put me to where I wanna be...I stooped as low as Wal-Mart brand, but with my whisker Bisquet, the fletchings dont last more than a couple of shots, but refletched, they are good just to keep shooting in the off season...

I don't understand, I shoot nothing but a WB and my Vanes last a long time and the feathers are good for the entire season... I have used the WB for years and swear by it every season ......just got these back 1/2 Dozen Carbon Tech WhiteTail 40/65's.  These are custom built arrows, hand painted and fletched. (not the plastic wraps)  Carbon Tech is a premium arrow shaft co. and are built in the U.S.A.  The 40/65's wt. is 7.9 g.p.i. Remember, that $600.00 plus bow you just bought is only as good as what you shoot out of it !    The arrows have been dipped in bright white and then crested in burnt orange, blue and silver.  Nocks are Bohning White nocks.  Vanes on this set are Bohning "Killer" 4" set on a right helical.  Vane colors are blue and white. These are my 6 hunting arrows which will hold my grim reapers.....100gr

those are sweet...but I will have to check out e-bay...I will not pay as much as my car is half worth if I can hit where I want to for $20 for 6...it only takes 1 arrow, and if I got good groups with $3 a piece arrows, I will not justify spending over $100 for a dozen..,.(dicks in our area has 6 for $19.00...sounds good, and I will get dialed in with them in no time...) anyway...hunting is all about what works for them, and what they can afford, and I seem to do just fine as is...but I will take any free offers that are available, no doubt  :)
