Arrows??
 
I recently purchased a 2008 Bowtech General on clearence. I am going to get some new arrows I was thinking Easton Axis 400 or Carbon Express Maxima 350. What do u think?

RE: Arrows??
 
From a quality standoint, either arrow the Axis or the Maximas are good arrows (with a slight edge to the Maximas).
The important thing is that you get the correct spine (stiffness) arrow for your rig. This has much to do with the draw weight of your bow (where you actually have it set, not the draw weight range) and your particular draw length.

If you can give us those numbers, we can give you a recomendation on which arrows would best suit your needs.

Can't go wrong with either of those, but do get the correct spine. I shoot the maxima and can not be happier. However, I'm switching to the heavier FMJ for elk hunting this coming year.

.400 spine is going to be waaaaaaaay too soft of a spine to shoot safely

I shoot at 72# and 29" so our specs should be similar.

Based on my numbers, I shoot a .340 spine arrow with a 100gr point at 28.5" long. This spines out about perfectly for my rig.

Go with a .340" spine. Especially if you are goin to shoot 100gr heads at 29" arrow length.
