I am thinking about changing from alum. to carb.Seen a set of arrows in Cabelas. They are Cabelas carbon hunter #je-41-4982 55-70 lb. 8.7gr.
They will be cut to 29in. For a weight of 252.3 + 100gr. head +50gr. for nock insert and vanes for a total of 402.3 . Bow is set at 65lb. Has anybody used these arrows to hunt with? Looks like the price wright.

what is holding you back? but look at Bemans & GoldTip carbons instead
in fact go to Huntersfriend.com and you will be an expert in no time it is the best site for explaing things

The hunters were the first carbon arrow I bought. They flew like crap. After shooting next to someone with goldtip hunter xt's I quickly made the change. Its hard to beat them. With the 7595 you should be around 400 grs with a 100 grain tip. If you spend the etra money now you wont have to later when you throw the hunters away.
