I am wondering what it is that makes you shoot the arrows or buy the shafts you do? Is it U.S.A. made, brand preference, straightness and weight tolerences, spine consistency, because your buddy does, etc.. I have to be honest this subject is my hardest to figure out for myself. I've shot a pile of arrows over the years, I love my XX78's but have yet to find a carbon shaft that grabs me yet. I am thinking about Nitro Stingers, Carbon Tech or Victory to try this year. For those of you that shoot Carbon Tech what are your thoughts? I hear they have the best consistency on the market.
