Expect this... I Bought them in a rush got them home an after inspecting my friends like each fletching is different! An they were and glue all over so I returned them. Only 3/12 were the same an acceptable. Maybe ask Before ordering. The fletching was terrible.

at the price you got them for its still worth it even if you need to have them refletched.. they still available, they'd make a good small game arrow (can go through a dozen arrows easy)

I used them for several years but I always bought the raw shafts and fletched them myself. they worked just fine for me. It is my understanding that they are Beaman ICS Hunters rebranded with Cabelas name.

When I bought my bow from a guy from this AT forum and they came with some. I was given some ACC's from my uncle a couple years ago so that is what I shoot at deer with. However, I still shoot my Cabela's hunters at targets and they shoot just perfectly fine. I'm tempted to use these for season b/c i've learned that ACC's aren't the best for hunting.

Your thinking of the stalker Extreme Cabelas shafts(100% sure)..The Carbon Hunters that the OP is referring too are relabeled Easton carbon storm shafts(pretty sure)

I used these arrows for 7 years and never had any problems with them. I was told by the owner of Adams archery in Milan Michigan that they are actually easton powerflights. I shoot gold tip XT hunters now and to tell you the truth I see no difference in my accuracy, even with broadheads.

I've been shooting these for a while now. I ordered a set of Beman ICS Bowhunter 400 shafts and damned if they're not EXACTLY the same as the Cabelas Carbon Hunter, down to the nock(beman color codes by spine, all of cabelas are white).

Now I feel really dumb because for years I shot the 55/70(which is a 400 spine) using 125 grain broadheads out of my parker 60 pound bow. I left the arrows full length and my broadhead shooting was erratic at best.
