Which small Dia. arrow shaft
Just checking to see what you ladies are shooting for a small dia. carbon shaft. I know that they can get quite expensive. Looing for some that don't break the bank. These are for my wife who is shooting 45 pounds from a compound.

I am a big fan of Carbon Express. The Eliminators are good if she is only shooting short distances, but for longer shots the Maximas are great.

Not pure carbon ... but I really like the Easton ACG or the AC Navigators. They fly like darts.
(You may be able to find some Navigators from previous years in bargain bins).

Easton Carbon 1. Lancaster has them, they are ace diameter and about $100 a dozen!

I personally shoot the maxima 250's but they are like $120 a dozen. If you are going for an inexpensive but still a great arrow, i would go for the gold tips. I used to shoot the gold tip xt hunters and they run $75-$80 a dozen. I fell into the maximas after my bf bought some for the recurve and they didn't fly right. For 3Ds and such out of my recurve I shoot the gold tip expeditions. Run about $60 a dozen so I feel a lot better if I lose one that if i lose a $20 arrow.

Elk, even though I am not a lady, check out the GoldTip Ultralight Entradas. I shoot the .500 spine full length from my 40# recurves with 120gn points. I bet the would work for her 45#er. I get them at F.S. Discount Archery real cheap, under $83.00 a dozen! Thats cut to length, fletched (5"feathers), inserts installed, and choice of fletch color!

my wife shoots the PSE radial X weave 100's for both hunting and 3d.....her 3d arrows have a glue in 70gr tip, flex fletch 212-they weigh in at 275gr and the hunting ones run a 100gr screw in, 4" feathers weigh in at 315grs and both have wraps...the STL hunters are the cheapest and what she hunted with for 2 seasons...she will be hunting with the pro's this year.

Thanks everybody for the help
I think I'll be checking on Speed pro max, Victory nano and Carbon one.
AT is sure a great site!

I would strongly recommend the Victory Nano's - they come in V1, V3 or V6 tolerances. You can get the V6's for about 77.00 a dozen if you want to try a great product at a great price. I use the V3's and love them. I shoot 50# and shoot the 500 spine with an 80 grain point. Hope this helps.

I had the PSE radial X weave but when I bought my new bow last year my pro shop guy recommended I switch to Gold Tip ultralight 500's as the new Xweaves were starting to have problems with cracking. I really like the Ultralights though they are more expensive than the PSEs I can get a dozen with custom fletching and arrow wraps, nocks and inserts shipped to my door for $95. I just add the point of my choice or they will ad them for $6

Here's a tip. If you buy the lower priced arrows that are rated at a lower straightness, a way to correct this is to cut an inch or so off the top end and then cut from the bottom. That will increase the straightness and make-up for the difference in types of arrows.
Personally, I use the Carbon Express Maxima shafts. I love them and they are excellent arrows. They are a little more pricey, but they last much longer.

did you experience the cracking yourself? either way both are tough arrows...i personally shoot gold tip and have for years...the radials have performed flawlessly for my wife and taken some abuse that some other brands wouldn't have taken from my experiences....

get the easton redlines in the 860 or 700 spine 3 inch feathers or vanes and 70 grain glue in nibbs super strong and don`t bend even in wood contact... just be sure to cut them out of any trees or wood or wiggle in a small circle until able to pull out with ease.. what draw length again???? will be in the 255 fps or faster with a 45 lb mild cam compound and SHORT 26 inch draw... AND CUT TO 27 OR SO INCHES..
