Man, with all the different manufacturers of carbon arrows out there and the various offerings from each, it is really a confusing task to get the best arrow for the buck for a particular bow.

I have been using carbon express 350 for the past several years.

I would like to get a couple dozen for my new bow and have been looking at the aramidkv from Carbon Express, the gold tip pro hunter from Gold tip which are both available locally.

any suggestions or recommendations??

I have been using the gold tip pro hunters for over 5 years now. Haven't found a reason to try anything else.

Ive used Beman ICS Hunter 500 arrows that are nice. Right now I'm using Beman ICS Energy 360 arrows that are also nice. Next I would like to try some of Cabelas Carbon Hunter 55/75 arrows.

Going to try the gold tip XT hunters to start with. a little less expensive that the hunter pros and besides, the pros are out of stock right now.
If I go to the 90 gr Muzzys, I will be throwing arrows at right about 300 gr.

This is a strange year. I am going to have to go buy a lotery ticket.
I went to get some work done on the X-Force and order the xt hunters on Saturday, seems the hunter pros came in the day before, so I got those instead.

they break real easy coming out of my xforce at 326fps, but i'm not sure any arrow would hold up to a miss, limb, or rock at those speeds. if there is a carbon arrow that will, please post the name.

I had a carbon express 350 double richochet off of a truck and car fender a few years ago. it was a solid sounding contact. I checked the shaft for any kind off damage both visual and audible. I did not find any damage and put the arrow back into the inventory. I also had a richochet off of a twig this season that stuck the broadhead into a good sized sappling, which I had to cut out with my hunting knife. It also showed no evidence off damage and was returned for further use.
