One of the most respected crossbow arrow gurus around is Jerry from Tapp-Nation. I've been shooting his affordable custom arrows for 3 years and they are awesome. No flyers, match grade quality, SPINE indexed and very durable.

Also recommend Jerry at Tapp Nation. His arrows are top notch. You can't shoot at the same spot on the target or you'll be buy more arrows.

Jerry at Tapp-Nation will not up-sell you with junk you DON’T need! He will set you up with the finest built arrows on the net today and at a considerable savings! He also sells crossbows too! Be sure to check his site out and even better yet, call him personally at the number at the bottom of the web place page! Good luck

I would suggest you start with the factory arrows that come with the bow to get used to the bow. You are very likely going to send some over the target and there is no reason to put a lot of money into learning arrows. You may even want to decide to go with some factory fletched arrows as you need more if you feel you still arent shooting as solid as you want to be

When you feel comfortable move up to a spine indexed arrow. Both of those bows will work great with Black Eagle Executioners.

Indexing does a couple of things, it tightens up the group and extends the grouping ability of the arrows. Typically you can be guaranteed 1.5 to 2.0 in groups at 50/60 if you have mastered the bow enough to manage the trigger to this level of shooting

After some time you can consider moving up to a better arrow for shooting to 100+ yards if you decide you want to do some of that type of practicing

I didnt mention my proprietary arrow called a Spynal Tapp. That was because they are a couple of bucks more than the Executioners. There is no reason to shoot an arrow like the tapps until you decide you want a more accurate arrow. Executioners are also a very accurate arrow

Jerry is the man no doubt!

I remember this past summer he spent prolly close to an hour on the phone with me trying to figure out what arrows I could sleeve together for bowfishing. Turns out he didn't have sufficient stock of the two arrows that worked best, but referred me to several places that did carry them.

I felt obligated to offer him some money for his time, but he wouldn't take it. So I did the next best thing, I ordered some Tactical Tapps (which I was planning on doing eventually anyways). Turns out the Tapps are everything people talk them up to be! And Jerry is a truly great guy to deal with. A win win.

What I found out with factory arrows is they often don't group with each other. They shoot great if you shoot just one arrow, which I did for a season, but that's no fun to sight in again after you lose that one particular arrow. With the Tapps, they all group together. To me that's worth spending money on.

thanks for the help. what is your opinion of the black eagle arrows that come with the deathstalker? if i buy the scorpyd. i was thinking i would buy a extra half dozen when i buy the xbow. would they be a good hunting arrow?
