When I needed some cheap carbons for Flu Flu arrows for grouse hunting, I went to my local shop and bought Easton PowerFlights for $4 each - that was last year. I went back a few weeks ago to get more and they are up to $7 a shaft now.
I shoot gold tip expedition hunters for varmints such as ground hogs and all small game. The nice thing bout gold tip is all there hunters series arrows weigh the exact same just the more you pay the lower tolerances for variations there are. So while I shoot pro hunters for all big game sometimes xt hunters when im low on cash, I can practice with expedition hunters and not have to worry bout loosing my $10 arrows (expeditions are only $5), also not have to change my setup at all.
After tagging along with a buddy last year shooting prairie dogs, I was pretty impressed with the Easton Axis. No, they aren't cheap. But they stood up to all kinds of abuse - including rocks - without a problem. Heads didn't hold up real well, but the shafts are really tough.
