      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Carbin Express, weight forward arrows

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
    • I was thinking more about the hair jigs.  
    • Generally fly tiers much prefer squirrel tail hair.  There are several long standing patterns that use squirrel but  I don't recall ever hearing anybody talk about raccoon tails. The body fur might be useful as dubbing material but there are too many other options to make it worth the trouble.  I doubt anybody would find possum fur of value as a fly tying material,   but then I'm no expert. And I know nothing about making spinning lures and have never sold a pelt to any fishing tackle company.  Squirrels are my pals.
    • I have hardwood in my new house and a drum style house humidifier - does the humidifier only run when the heat (furnace) is on. And if thats the case how do you run the humidifier in summer if its always going to be hot enough to not require the furnace to run?
    •    The electric choke dose not open and close according to engine temp.    The electric choke starts to warm up when you turn the ignition key on.  If you leave the key on but don't start the engine the choke will continue to warm and eventual open.  So a normal cold start with any carb regardless of choke type is to pump the peddle to get a shot of fuel from the accelerator pump.   If you had an automatic choke that peddle pump would set the choke too.   Now crank over the engine. If your electric choke is open before you've put power to it it'll need to be adjusted.  Loosen the set screws at the round black cap and rotate the cap till the choke closes.  Snug the screws back up.   Chances are you'll have to go back and fine tune this along with the high idle speed.     I'm sure you can find that procedure on the net somewhere.      The miss and cut out at higher RPMs could be a lot of things but could be related to the choke and specifically a choke butterfly closing by the increased vacuum.  Thats contrary to a choke being pulled open by vacuum but I've seen it happen when the choke isn't right when under load and vacuum drops with throttle butterflies wide open.    At any rate adjust the choke to fix the cold start issue and that might clear up the cut out.   If your still bogging, wire the choke open after the engine has warmed and try it under load.
