Gold tip arrows topped off with Rage 2-blade, or G5 Striker.

If you want the very best I would say Easton ACC's but they are costly! In addition toACC'sI have used A/C Super Slims, Axis Full Metal Jacket, Gold Tips, and easton XX75's and even easton gamegetters. All of these arrows are excellent for hunting and have killed lots and lots of game by many of bowhunters.With arrows today, it would be hard to find a arrow that didn't make a good hunting arrow. Sure many are better and more expensive but for hunting most big game shot at ranges under 30 yards, a simple and inexpensive arrow such as a easton carbon storm will kill game all day long.

The best hunting arrows I've ever used are the Easton A/C Superslims.......now discontinued[]. Don't laugh at my next choice but coming in second are the XX78 Superslams. Took a lot of deer with those.

a/c/c 3-71's (for my taste)

After breaking 4-5 arrows in '06.....I switched to these in '07. NO breaks. Several arrows re-used and took multiple deer.

Either ACC's or Maxima Hunters. Couldn't go wrong with either. Hey, you said the best...those 2 are the best of the best, IMO.

Really though.....get the best arrows you can afford. I know it's difficult letting go of hard earned money for something that's going to break and wear out, but it really is worth it.

Another ACC fan here. I have used XX75s, XX78s, Gold Tips, Carbon Extreme and now ACCs and I can't think of a reason to switch.
