Can anyone tell me the difference between the CX 3D Maxima's and the regular Maxima's. On the website the specs are the same. What's up?

If you shoot past 40 yards a lot you will notice a difference.

Assuming great spine consistency is out of the equation- straightness very much matters- ESPECIALLY with fixed blade broadheads and higher arrow speeds and longer distance-any combination of them.

I cannot stand any wobble- at all. Maybe its because I started shooting alums and the only time the arrow would wobble is if it was bent. Most of the pultrudeds had little wobble either- far better on average than modern carbons arrows. Straightness is a real issue with Insert type carbons, and I refuse to pay top dollar for a dozen arrows and I have to relegate half of them to "field point only" use. Cutting a bit form each end usually helps but most manufacturers still have issues that they did 10 years ago- nature of the beast with the way these things are constructed.

A/C/Cs, CX Maxima selects, CT XPs, whatever- I buy the straightest best spined shafts I can find. Thats just me, ymmv.
