Just wanted to introduce myself. Hello to everyone. I am from Ohio and am fairly new to bow hunting. I am shooting a Martin Slayer with a draw length of 28in. draw weight of 65lbs. am looking for a good carbon arrow to shoot. i dont mean to sound stupid, but i dont know how to read the charts. any help is appreciated. thanks.

Welcome to the forums Jimi.

Asking questions is never stupid. It's the folks who don't ask questions and just act like they already know it all that are being stupid.

I don't have a good answer for you, but I'll point ol' Buckfever over to this thread. He's buried many an arrow in the backyard.

welcome to dhc jimi sir. glad to have to with us. you will get a different arrow selection from just about as many hunters as you ask. i like gold tip pro hunters. but they tend to be on the more expensive side. carbon express are also some very good arrows. if you have a sportsmen warehouse in your area their store name arrows are suppose to be the same as a carbon express and a whole lot cheaper. as far as reading an arrow selection chart dont feel dumb. i doubt there are very many hunters out there that actually use this chart. most of the time hunters just go to a bow shop and let them determine what arrow length is correct for you. if i was you i would just go to a bow shop, pick out whatever arrows you like and have them cut them to the correct size to fit your bow. hope this helps and hope you enjoy the site.
