Carbon express terminators, Beman Ics hunters, and Gold tips are all very good arrows in that price range.

Incidently I went for very expensive arrows this year. I got the Carbon Express Aramid KV. They cost about $170 per dozen. I can live with that if they last a long time but like a moron I shot a group on Thursday and got a robinhood at 50 yards. grin $34 down the drain. mad

Ted- check out the Cabelas stalker extremes. $60 a dozen for carbon arrows. I shoot the weight and draw length as you, and I'm more than accurate enough with the cabelas arrows.

Several different models in the Carbon Express line to fill your needs. Weight forward technology can't be beat for keeping those broadheads flying straight.

DonBo....this new 'weight forward' technology advertising has been cracking me up. You don't have to spend big bucks on arrows, just use 125 grain broadheads.

I second the Cabelas carbon arrows. Look at the specs and they are made better than I can shoot to know a difference. To me they shoot the same as the big buck maxima hunters I bought before..(not again) The Archery guy at Cabelas said they are made by I think it was Easton. good specs carbon, pre-fletched with blazer vanes for about $60 a dozen to me it a no brainer. The only negative is getting them. This Sat. morning I made a special trip to get some and they are sold out. I was really annoyed by that and asked the sales rep. how you can be sold out on sat morning. he blamed it on the game fair and said he was more upset than I was because he will have to explain it to over 50 more guys just like me before the end of the day. so I guess they are pretty popular. I know one thing it sure stings a lot less when you lose one.

Gold tips are great arrows, but I don't think they are in his price range of $60-$70.

I've been shooting Beman's for 5 years now and they shoot great for me. I bought 2 dozen when they were on sale and still have 14 left but once they run out I might try the Cabela's. The specs are so close on all the carbon arrows that I think only a tournament archer could tell the difference.

As you can tell by my username I shoot Goldtips and I am continuing to but not the high buck ones instead I found a dozen fletched for 50 bucks on www.keysonecountrystore.com they are called Vapor Hunters and are now made by Goldtip I just got my dozen and they shoot and pattern awesome.

I have heard lots and lots and lots of good things about gold tip.

Goldtip- I'm not sure if it's the wording or not-did somebody else make the vapor hunters before goldtip?

Goldtip... Light/Straight/Strong. Expedition Hunter 5575 should do you fine.

Koonie I believe Blackhawk made these prior to Goldtip buying out the company

If I sell my bow at the end of the season again I might sell the arrows with it and go with the goldtips for next year.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
