5 Best Carbon Arrows for Hunting in 2016
For this guide, we’ll assume you already know the basics of hunting arrows, and that you have determined your own proper arrow length. The question now becomes which type of arrow is best for you.
1. Carbon Express Maxima Red
The Maxima Red carbon are one of the top hunting arrows from Carbon Express. The arrows are manufactured with a state of the art design, specifically aimed at providing improved broadhead performance and accuracy. This is achieved by having stiff ends that contain the in-flight flexing of the arrow (the dynamic spine).
2. Gold Tip XT Hunter
The XT Hunter is the #1 selling hunting arrow produced by Gold Tip, and the 5575 Blacks are the most popular size with bowhunters. The XT’s are known to be a tough and reliable bowhunting arrow, and one that can withstand practice sessions as well as deer hunting season.
The XT Hunter 5575 has a weight grain of 8.2/inch, with a tolerance of +/-2 grain per pack of dozen arrows. In addition to that, the XT’s are hand sorted and laser inspected to a shaft tolerance of +/-0.003”.
3. Beman ICS Bowhunter
Carbon Express Mutiny Carbon Arrows[/easyazon_image]Beman ICS Bowhunter arrows are one of the best mid-range choices for cheap carbon hunting arrows. You’ll get 12 arrows for the price of 6 premium arrows, without sacrificing all that much in performance.
4. Carbon Express Maxima Blue Streak
The Maxima Blue Streaks are the lightest hunting arrows made by Carbon Express. If you’re looking for the highest possible speed in addition to accuracy, the Blue Streaks would be a solid choice.
The arrow shafts are made with a proprietary cross-weaved carbon material called Diamond Weave. The carbon weave creates an exceptionally stiff arrow that has equally great spine consistency.
5. Carbon Express PileDriver
he PileDriver gets its name thanks to the fact it is the heaviest arrow produced by Carbon Express. This is good news for hunters who want to carry arrow momentum and impart more devastating impacts into their target at longer ranges.
The PileDriver arrows are also endowed with a technology called “weight-forward” which is intended to lead to tighter groupings. Keep in mind that you will need to cut the shafts to length and glue in some inserts.
Carbon Express Maxima Red vs Blue Streak
The Maxima Red and Blue Streak arrows are both considered to be some of the top carbon arrows for hunting. If you look at the specs closely, it’s actually hard to see the differences.
If you go by what Carbon Express says, the main difference is in how the shafts are constructed.
