    I love GT. I'm one that likes to try new stuff, but with GT I have stuck by them. I find out that putting a coat of furniture polish on them helps.

    I am hard pressed to switch arows if the ones I use fly true.. All the new arrows gets me wondering if I can get tighter groups, but I stick with what works for me.. and they arepriced right too..

    For hunting I like the XT hunter. No need to fork out $$$$$ for the gold series. I order shafts and put the vanes on myself.

    I use Beman black max 340's. Like the small diameter and they fly great for me. Used GT's in the past and found that a couple arrows out of a dozen flew erratically. Could have been tuning problems, but those arrows consitantly did that.

    Default Carbon Express

    The BowTech uses Carbon Express Terminiator Selects 60/75. I have two sets, one plain and one with tube inserts than increases the weight to 650 grains with a 150 grain three blade.

    The Pearson Flame uses Easton aluminum 2113's and the recurve uses 2117's.

    I guess I am still old school, XX78's in 2315's. Got lots of them and lots of fletcing.

    Default Arrows..........

    I shot GT 7595's in the past but have since switched to Axis 340 Full Metal Jackets. I've found them to be a lot tougher arrow and they penetrate like crazy. The down fall of them is that I've had to upgrade my target to a Rhinehart because they were blowing through my 2yr old Block on about every other shot. Really happy with them so far.

    akcub you think your old school? Laminated birch arrows with 145 gr snuffers. Or POC shafts with natural turkey LW helical feather with the 145 gr snuffer.

    laminated birch is 700gr all togather and the POC is something like 460gr

    Default GT'S are great

    AK Grey,
    I have been shooting the GT 7595 XT Hunters as well. I like them but they are the only carbon I've shot so nothing to compair with. I'm currious as to what the furniture polish is for? Does it help with sticking in the target. I built a target using compressed cardboard and shrinkwrap and it works awesome but those carbons seem to stick a little trying to pull them out. My inlaws shoot Easton ACC's and they seem to pull right out. Any ideas,suggestions?

    I shoot the GT's with compound, Legacy 2117 and 2216 with recurve, Sitka Spruce 11/32 with self bows

    I use Easton Axis. They shoot great out of my Mathews bow. I get excellent penetration so have not switched to anything else.
