    Heading to the bow shop at the end of the week to get setup with a new bow and was going to buy a new set of arrows for deer hunting. Looking for some advice as to what I should be looking for when it comes to best fitting me and the bow as well. Obviously after watching the bow hunt or die videos it is easy to tell the Carbon Express Maxima Reds are a good option but are there any others that are comparable? Thanks for any advice!

    While I'm sure you could get numerous replies, I'd like to offer a different suggestion. Check out Black Eagle's zombie slayer arrow. While I shoot maxima reds through my hoyt, several of my buddies and I decided to all shoot the same arrow for 3d this year. We decided on the zombie slayers mainly due to cost but also ggraphics while on the range. However I've now setup my Prime shift and my new Elite E 35 to shoot them, and I'm loving them. So far stupid accurate, tough as nails, and as a just incase I'll be prepared for the apocalypse should it be anytime soon.

    Ya I also shoot the Beman ICS Hunter line of arrows. I've never had a problem with them. The only real thing you have to do when picking an arrow is tell the pro shop worker what your draw weight is. If you shoot 60 lbs you'll need like a 400-500 weight arrow. So it really only depends on your draw weight and what you want to spend. They are all good.

    If you got room in the buget I would look at easton FMJ they hit like a tank. And my bow is alot quite. There heavier than most other arrows. And there super tough. Only thing a bit pricey

    Easton Axis

    I've shot MANY different arrows and those 3 are by far my favorites. I'll admit I haven't shot some of these newer companies though. I quit playing with different arrows every few weeks to focus my hunting funds elsewhere.

    Like others have previously said, the Beman ICS Hunters are a great choice, especially for the price. They're accurate and don't break when you accidentally shoot trees ;) I shoot the CX Red's now and they're also a good choice if you're willing to pay a little more.
