I am shootin the Beman Black Max out of my setup wich is just about the same. I also have used Cx200's as my arrow of choice before the BlackMax. I would say for your set up go with the Cx line of arrows . The axis arrow is a good arrow but the Black Max is a straighter arrow and a heaver arrow.

I would either go with the beman black max elite or the easton axis.The axis are a little bit lighter but the bemans are straighter

That is what I was trying to cenvey Deer thanks for the clarification. Yes the Black max ar .5 gr GPI heavery but that is not going to be noiticiable that much.

All great recommendations here.
If you want to save some money. use the Beman ICS Hunters.
For the Slim Tech shafts, Beman Black Max can't be beat in price or in specs.
If you want tough, accurate, and consistant, the Carbon Tech all carbon shafts are number one in my shop.
If you want to spend the extra money, A/C/C's are a very, very good shaft for pretty much everything out there........including hunting.
One shaft we started to carry here this year that I really like, is the new Beman MFX Classic. They have the new Slim Technology for penetration, but they are the first arrow to do so with the wood grain look on the ooutside. They look really good, and perform like the Black Max.

For hunting and target I would suggest ACC's or Goldtip Pro Hunters!

Gold Tip!

Love them. All above are great arrows as well.

Seems to me personally, most are so well made these days, (assuming you stay out of the bargain caves) that shaft weight and resulting kinetic energy is the primary determining factor.

Gold Tip. They have lots of components to get the arrows just the way you want them.
