im pretty new to archery and am trying out different arrows. right now i think the best is carbon, knowing that the metal ones bend very easy. those are the only ones i've tried so far. so to save the the hassle and the money... what's the best arrow to use?
Well,your are going to get a lot of varying comments on this one. IMO, the best general use arrow is still the ACC's. But, some of the pure carbons are come very close. Now, the reason the ACC is the best is because of it straightness and spine consistancy,as well as a lot of spine grades. But, it comes with a price and if really abused it will bend.
Now, I guess, target shooting there is a lot of variation depending on the format. Again, in most any shooting event, you will see ACC's. IMO, there is no such thing as a do it all arrow, or I would be shooting it. For hunting I am using Easton Axis and I really love them, they are about as tough as they come and will basically be legal for any quary. They are heavy and will not work as good as a lighter, larger diameter shaft would for target.
gold tip XTs are a good arrow that wont break the bank they are durable and can be used for target and hunting when you hit the point where you have a target bow and a hunting bow then think about fat shafts for target.
for hunting Gold Tip cheapest grade Hunters in 5575 or 7595 depending on your draw legth and poundage. for target Gold Tip Series 22 ultra lite cheap grade. Dont waste your $ on premium grade shafts, you wont be able tell the difference. Take the $ you save and buy better sights and release aids.
