Post Arrows

For years ive shot GOLD TIP 55/75 Pro Hunters and have blown through the last 12 deer.Pro shop was out of them so i bought 6 Maxima's 350.They sure are a nice looking arrow.Finished arrow weight will be about the same as gold tips(379gr) so will see how they do in October.Anybody shooting these,hows there durability,i like there tolerances.

Beman Bone Collectors are my favorite arrow by far.

OK I know I just posted this a couple days ago but Finally got out & shot the bow this am shot surprisingly well for not picking up the bow in over a month
I have used the PSE's since I got back into bow hunting 4 years ago going to the range w/ the crew is getting very competitive I am looking for tighter groups & some more speed
Bow shop is having a store wide sale next Sat. the Mayhems are 75.50 reg price PSE's are under $40 these are 1/2 Doz are they really that much better & worth me spending the extra cash?
what would be a good arrow in between the two they also have Easton & Beman's bow shop said the beman hunter elite were a step above the PSE's & the mayhems about 4 or 5
Question for you guys that shoot good carbon arrows what do think I should look at?
would really like to stay in the $50 - $60 1/2 doz range unless you really think that a more expensive arrow would be better I do notice that the PSE's really fly weird but are 99% of the time in the kill zone not bullseye but a dead animal
sorry for being so long but want to make sure I am buying the right stuff the PSE's seemed to work well with my old bow but they fly totaly different w/ my new one

Beman hunters,gold tip xt,mayhems,maximas all of these should be in that range.You could probably get a dozen beman hunters for around 80$.They are a great arrow for the money.If your arrows are not flying true you could be underspined,making contact with the arrow rest,or your bow setup has a problem.Do some paper tuning to make sure the back end of your arrow is following the tip.This will tell you if your nock point or centershot is way off.Do not accept erratic arrow flight.

I don't shoot a lot of arrows/year so spending the extra doesn't hurt too much, however, the meyhems shoot the tightest groups I've ever shot. I like them. Are they worth the extra money, really don't know,
