I've got a few different carbon arrows but I always come back to the Gold Tip Pro Hunter. I like it cause its tough, fast and the arrows spin true and are within a couple grains in weight. I never see much variance in weight between arrows.

Anyone else a fan of the Gold Tip Pro Hunters?

I have the Kinetic and Velocity Pro series as well

The Pro Hunter is perfect.

The Kinetics are good but not great (IMO)

The Velocity Pros weigh only about 10-15 grains lighter than my Pro Hunters so not a huge gain in performance.

I went with 20 grain screw in weights for my Velocity Pros. Ended up weighing around 425 with a FOC around 12% and they will be my hunting arrow for this year.

I've shot Gold Tip arrows for 10+ years and never had a reason to change.

Once you add the 20 grain screw in weights, you essentially turned your Velocity Pros into Pro Hunters lol

My 27.5" Pro Hunters weigh 385 grains with a FOC of 11%

Yes, but with a higher FOC than a Pro hunter with normal inserts. I just wanted a little bit lighter overall arrow

just looked at the price, a bit high, but heck if I stow away a little cash over the summer I might spring for them. Tired of shooting Walmart specials! lol

Gold Tip XTs are great arrows also, for a lesser price

carbon impacts. they may have improved over the last few years but i found the gold tips to be too brittle.
