well I am tired of walmart specials that aren't even on the shelves any more till august.

What's a good carbon arrow that won't break the bank? If it already has inserts and what not, that is a plus... Thinking of looking at some eastons or something. Preferably a lighter weight arrow, something like 9 gpi or less, spined for 60-70 lbs or so...

Also they have to be fairly affordable, not cheap but not gonna break the bank either

Throw some names out so I can google em. Thanks a bunch

Carbon express maxima or gold tips.... Personally I would stick with 9gpi or a little higher....quality arrows make a big difference.

Easton Axis or Bloodlines. Bloodlines are basically the very affordable, now discountinued ST Epics. Either arrow will give you great balance of weight, small diameter, durable and very affordable costs. I know you can get Bloodlines around $70 a dozen, Axis can be found from $80-$100. My next hunting arrow, after I'm done with these ST Epics I'm using, will be one of these two.

Just about all of them are made in Korea or Mexico these days anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if they were made in the same factory out of the same carbon stock; just with different labels slapped on them.

I've shot Gold Tip 7595 Pro Hunters or XT Hunters for over a decade without any problem. I do not see any reason to change now.

I have about 60 new Carbon Express Predator II 6075 arrows uncut and the inserts for them. I bought them from the Great Outdoors Store in Jackson, TN when they went out of business last year. I may be interested in letting some of them go.

If you go the Gold Tip route, be careful on arrow spine selection.

Their 5575 is NOT for bow poundage between 55-75 pound draw weight, and their 7595 is NOT for bow poundage between 75-95 pounds.

The 5575 is a .400 spine
The 7595 is a .340 spine

I wouldn't shoot a 400 spine with a bow shooting over 60 lbs.

i do but the length is 26 inches though, as long as you follow the charts you will be fine but if your on the line with in a pound or to go to the stiffer shaft

Check out your manufachters charts. Put in the info and it will tell u the suggested arrow u need. If u go and grab the lightest arrow u find to get speed you will loose energy drasticlly.

Another vote for Gold Tips. 2 seasons, 1 elk, two deer, 3 misses, no damage to arrows. I have 10 out of 12 arrows. 1 is in Kentucky and I will look for it when I pull my stand for the year. The other I lost when practicing for the elk hunt. I really like the weight adders you can put on to adjust FOC.

You can still find Harvest Time HT2 arrows for cheap depending in spine and straightness. Since Muddy bought them out they are wholesaling the old stock. They are light but VERY durable. I've shot them for a few years.

I sold my bow and about to buy a new one but this time with 50/60lb limbs so if I can't use these I may be selling them if your still looking. They are all custom created by none other then TNDEERGUY

If I keep them I will prob switch to Black Eagles or Gold Tips.

I used the terminator 4560 and killed 5 deer with them but they are only available around hunting season and I can't buy any in the off season to practice. Plus at $7 an arrow I could probably spend the same or a little less per arrow for a dozen of better quality arrows.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I now must decide between gold tip, easton and carbon express.. Tndeerguy, I might look into those bloodlines.

I shoot Bloodlines, hard to beat for the money... And pass thru on every deer Ive shot with them.

Goldtips for me. Shot a variety of easton for a while then shot the goldtip and have loved them ever since.
