BOTH NICE ARROWS, BOTH ARE GREAT FOR HEAVY HUNTING ARROWS. I DON'T THINK YOU COULD GO WRONG WITH EITHER.

I have been happy with the Easton FMJ so far. The small diameter penetrates very well. Themetal surface is slippery, and pulls out of layered foam targets pretty easy. Weight is about right for a hunting arrow - averagecomplete arrow comes out in the low 400's for weight. I was, however, a little surprised when a turkey was able to thrash around, with about 16" of arrow sticking out of his chest; and break off the arrow. Some other folks I know have had these arrows bend while inside of big game animals as well. But I suppose a regular carbon arrow would break under this much force anyway.

I think the FMJ could take the impact of being shot into something like a cinder block better than the CE maxima. But it could also bend with severe side force. The all carbon arrow will either break or snap back to straight.

I was looking at the FMJ and Maxima, but saw that there was a lot of weight difference between the two.

For my settings, the the Maxima is 8.0 gpi and the FMJ is 10.2 gpi.

But this threw me - the CE Terminator "Lite" Hunter is 8.9 gpi.

So strangely, the "Lite" arrow is heavier than the Maxima. I really think they should drop "Lite" from the
name. I'm no expert, but 8.9 gpi for a 4560 and 9.8 for a 6075 is not a "light" arrow.

Anyway, the Terminator's have similar feature to Maxima (not as good tolerances), the perfect
weight I'm looking for, and are cheaper than the Maximas.
