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.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
