    Well, I know I will be in the small majority, but I say it's Easton's XX75 or XX78 aluminum arrows. Show me an arrow that is as consistent in spine and straightness for anywhere near the price of these arrows. I'll wait......

    Granted, if you're a speed freak, you'll turn your nose up at them. But I've never bought a dozen of any brand of carbon arrow and had basically all twelve of them shoot exactly the same as I have with these aluminum shafts.

    I prefer Easton, and Gold Tip is up there as well.

    Easton: The biggest and most popular arrow supplier for a reason. There products are top quality and extremely consistent. They have an arrow for everyone...and not just one, but several different choices that would meet anyones needs. I have yet to use any easton arrow that I flat out said I would never shoot this again....although some other shafts made now owned by easton (Bemans) are not so great in my experiences. Although it doesnt weigh into my decision as much as others.....Made in the USA!

    Gold Tip: Toughest arrow on earth! They offer a great variety of arrows although not as extensive as easton theres surely an arrow that should meet your needs or price range. Again not that its super important to me.....moving some manufacturing now back in the USA!

    Some underrated shafts that need minor improvements here and there and could be at the top: Trophy Ridge and Radial X Weaves!

    The arrows that impress me most with their weight and straightness tolerences and overal consistent quality.... Carbon Express. The CX Maxima 3D Select is the best of the best, in my humble opinion.
    An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

    GoldTip I would have to say. I've been shooting them for 9 years now. They will break sometimes glancing off of trees, rocks, deer falling on them, etc. But, I have shot straight into rocks and bones without issue many times as well. They also are pretty consistent for me as far as the weight and quality.

    For hunting I got to vote for the trophy ridges crush's. They're well priced (cheaper then most top end), good weight, penetrate hard, very very straight, & silent.

    I really like the Carbon Impact fat shaft green label, Extremely tight tolerance on manufacturing. I heard of no problems with anyone that shoots them. Very consistent on weight, spine, and straightness.

    Gold Tip XT hunters or Expeditions. Very tough durable arrow, shoots good and reasonably priced. At your draw length and weight, I would think a 7595 would fit the bill.

    carbon express has treated me well...

    durable and great hunting shafts...now they have more to choose from...

    i love the flight i get out of the maxima hunters but will be switching to the mayhem hunter when they come out for some added weight

    easton are good too but i dont like thin shafts like most of them are.

    Victory and Carbon Express.

    Victory V Force V1: Very well made arrows that have held up very well. For my current setup they are spine correctly and are the correct gpi for what I like.

    Carbon Express Maxima: These were the first arrows I bough and they are my favorite. They are super durable and can handle being banged into one another when shooting and come out unmarked. I am switching back to Maxima's and getting the 3D selects b/c they again will be the right spine and gpi for my bow at 29".
