    Default what are you shooting carbon or aluminum

    See what people are shooting for arrows. I have been shooting cabon express and tried easton FMJ. I like the cabon express but looking maybe for something heavier and cost less. Tried the FmJ but their are really $$$ and I dont feel they shoot that well for me. Think I am going to go for gold tip pro hunter or maybe easton axec nano. I like to see what other peope are shooting and what they think of them.
    cheers

    Goldtips is my main projectile. No reason to shoot anything else.

    Default Carbon

    Been shooting carbon express for years. They are pricey, but imho they are the best. I'm glad you brought this up, interested to see what others are using.

    One bow I;m using Gold Tips and the other I'm using Full Metal Jackets. I think here soon that I will switch over totally to FMJ.. Love the penetration the FMJ gat and they flight awesome. I do give up speed but I gain allot more kinetic energy

    Hmmm, didn't know that. I'll look into it more and if that's the case, I think I have reason to switch.

    Default easton arrows

    Only some of easton arrows are made in the usa. I think it may only be their aluminum arrows are made in the usa and their carbon arrows are made over seas. Not sure if this is right but I do know that some of their arrows are not made in the usa.

    makes you wonder then why they had the federal import and excise tax instituted...spearheaded by easton. Almost tripled the price of wooden dowels
