Hello everyone, I'm new here and I was wondering if someone could give me some info on the best arrows to use. I know we all have our personal preferences, but any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm using a Hunter 55# amo 62.
Thanks in advance!:confused:

I'd say - alluminium arrows, but am not an expert. As far as i know Easton makes very good ones. I use cheap ones made in Taiwan and am glad of them, but they are far from "the best" :)

get the best quality you can afford and long as it works for your setup. you'll proably go thru several kind before you settle on the best for you. for me, it's carbon express maxima 250 @ 29" for my two hunting bows. for my other bows "if" I use for hunting, I use beman ics hunter or beman mfx micro. when I first started (last yr) I bought about a dozen carbon exp 4560 terminators from wal-mart to practice with. hope this helps?

Agree. What draw length?

My draw length is 29. I used aluminum before and really liked the durability, but it's been awhile.
Thanks for the help!!!:D

My last 'curve was 56# @ 30" shooting 2216's with 100 grains heads. I like alloy's because they soak up more vibration, quieter and usually good value. the only thing I don't like is they bend. Lots of rocks around here!

A unusual benefit to using cheap shafts is you can blame them for you missing. :D

i have never shot anything but gold tip carbon. i have a pic on my phone of one stuck in a tree. my buddy pulled it out and shot a 10 at a 3d shoot.

That's a good point for carbons, if your into shooting trees that is. :p

With a recurve, not as much speed to bend alloy's, even when a tree gets hit.
