Default Help with shafts

Carbon express quit making terminator a few years ago. With this particular bow, I have been hunting with terminators 6570s for years and love them. I am now down to only 6 shafts for the up coming season. I want to find a shaft similar to terminators.This bow im shooting these shafts with, is a bow I built a few years ago. I put redline limbs and a Ho cam on a power tech frame. I love this bow for hunting, that is when im not trad hunting. I have tried carbon force by Pse, Gold tips, Benman, etc. and have not found any I like as well. I know Carbon Express is making a simial shaft, cant think of the name, but was wondering if it is similar in specs to the terminators?

No, this is 6 shafts in about 6 or 7 years. Im just getting low with this bow. Besides, I shoot a lot of hogs. Its hard to get a pass through on a hog, and they like to roll on your shafts. All but oneof my busted shafts have come from boars. One was rolled on by a doe last year that I shot at about 50 yards. It didnt quite go through and stuck out the back side, and of course, she fell on it. [:@]

Yea them hogs can be nasty, I cant wait till I take one with my bow, hopefully this fall, but I guess youre doing pretty good then, I go through 6 arrows in about 8 years. I shoot aluminums andget a good clean passthrough just about everytime. Im not expecting that with hogs as I knwo how tough they really are.

Its a blast, you will love it. I shoot about 6 or 7 a year. Here in Texas they are a varmit. I will grab a bow when ever I need some pork and head to my land and arrow one. Its great stalking practice during the off season.

Help me out burnie.....Are the Terminators a light shaft or heavy? I simply can't remember the weight of those rascals....

Terminator Hunters are very, very good arrows. The 6075 weighs 9.8 gpi.

The Terminator Lite Select (.0025 straight) is 9.1 gpi for that same spine.

And finally, the Rebel Hunter weighs 11.3 gpi.....They also make a Rebel lite, and if memory serves me correctly they are around 9.7 gpi.....Shooting from the hip on that one though....

Any of those are good arrows. I BELIEVE the Rebel is the one closest to what you currently have.....

The Walmarts in this area just got in a bunch of the Terminator Hunter arrows. They are the 60/75's and are 31" long. Weight about 11 gpi. You might be able to stock up and get by for a few more years.
