I shoot just plain Maximas and they are awesome arrows. They are really tough. Also, after upgrading to these arrows my groups were a lot tighter. I'm sure the Maxima hunters are worth the price.

I shoot a maxima 250, and it is the best arrow I have ever shot.

I robin hooded one from 10ft once (It was a bet) and got about 8 inches of penetration.
I robin hooded a GT XT hunter last weekend from 10 yards, and got 12 inches of penetration.

The maxima is, in my humble opinion, tougher than the Gt's.

I am debating the switch from my FMJ to the Maxima Hunter. They are an awesome arrow, very tough, and light in weight when compared to others of similar strength. My FMJs weight 572 with the setup they are at, and the Maxima Hunters with the same blazers and wraps will weigh around 480-500. I picked up around 28 fps by shooting the Maximas and the weight difference with the added speed, is nearly identical as far as KE is concerned.

There is no question that they are pricey, but I think they are worth the money. Regular Maximas are also very good arrows, and cost little less (not much though).

At the shop I go to, they are I think $50.00 a 1/2 doz as opposed to the $60.00 or so for the Hunters.

Maximas are a very nice arrow I recently purchased them and like them a lot....They seem to be a "tough" arrow

i bought a 1/2 dozen of these arrows and i love them they keep a really tight pattern which can get expensive with all of the arrow collision....they are great arrows

Everything I have heard about them has been positive. I had a hard time choosing between them and Easton's FMJ arrows.

I opted to go with the Alluminum/Carbon FMJs, but the Maximas are excellent shafts.
