Carbin Express, weight forward arrows

6 posts in this topic

Looking to see how many of us shoot these carbon Express arrows and what they have found out for differences from there last arrows.

I switched from the Bemans IC 400's this year to the Carbon Express Maxima with the blazer vanes/ weight forward design. There simpy awesume in my opinion.

Just for the record I have a 26" draw at 58lbs.

As a Machinist of trade, I checked all 6 of them for the run-out they claim. It was very difficult to check, as they are very touchy/flexible. They met all the specs. and pass my standards of inspection.

Why I switched? I was looking for a flatter/faster probictory and found it!

I shot CX300's until this year(cause they don't make them anymore). Tried the Maxima hunter 350's and they dropped about an inch at 30 yards compared to the 300's. Heavier arrow. Did not notice anything special regarding the weight forward technology. Had better groups w/ the 300's too. I shoot Rage mechanicals. 29" draw, 64#.

I shoot them and though I like them well enough, I really haven't noticed any difference from other shafts I've ever shot.

I shoot them and I also have a dozen regular Maxima 300's. I notice a little more drop at 25-30 yards out of the hunters but thats due to the weight. My hunters weigh in at 400 grams and my regular 300's weigh in at 365 grams. All it means to me is a greater amount of kinetic energy but when I am in the high 70's anyway whats another 5 pounds?

why not just shoot 125 grain broadheads instead of buying weight forward arrows

Vister, You mean you didnt need this years best ever techno arrow that makes you a way better hunter than you were last year (untill the next year when the next one comes out) to get that monster you shot??......personally I think its all a bunch of hype to make more $$$. If it makes you feel more confident fine, its your money. I am also a machinist by trade and know what the tolerances mean. I fell for the marketing hype when I first got into bow hunting but have learned my lesson since. I bought a half dozen maxima hunters when they first came out and since then dozens of cabela's carbon hunter ones with blazers and they shoot just as well and hold up allmost as long at half the price. look at the specs, a couple thousands difference is a lot less than I could ever tell by shooting and I'd bet Chuck Adams himself couldnt tell the difference.

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
