My first set of arrows were the Gold Tip Hunter XT. I only have 5 left, and was going to order some more, but noticed the fletchings are shorter now.
I have shot arrows with the shorter fletchings, but it seems like the longer fletchings are more accurate.
What are you guys/gals shooting and how do you like them?

Easton Lightspeed 340 and 400 for target/3d bows and Easton Full metal jacket 340 for the hunting bow. Backup hunting bow I shoot Easton XX78 2317. Killed plenty with the XX78's.

The lightspeed's are pretty durable and I really like them, especially with the g-nock inserts.

If you buy FMJ's, make sure you get them from a pro shop that can properly install the HIT- insert. These arrows are bad-ass. I like the fact that they are heavy. Heavier arrows carry more energy for hunting=more pass throughs. Speed is fine but Kinetic energy kills!!


Shot some Easton Redline 460's for 3d and won't do it again, they grouped fine but seemed a little bit on the brittle side.

I'm shooting Radial X Weave STL Hunter 300's with Blazer vanes. I think they are more of an entry level arrow, but they shoot great for me. Prior to these I was shooting Gold Tip Expedition Hunter 7595's. Another entry level arrow. The STL's seem to group better for me.
My bow is a PSE X-force at 70lbs. It chronoed at 300fps flat. I'm shooting 100grn field points at the range and 3D, and 100grn Slick Tricks for hunting.

About kinetic energy, speed IS a component of the kinetic energy equation.

Good luck!

I shoot the "Gold Tip Pro Hunter 5575" with 4" feathers on them and 100gr tip. Never have had a problem, they shoot straight and pack a pretty good punch at 60+ yards.

If you like the arrow you have you can have them re-fletched with the 4" veins or you can buy just the shafts and have your local shop fletch them for you or just do it yourself.

Gold Tips. Spend the extra $$ and get the xt's. has 2" blazer vanes. If not those, Easton Full metal jackets. The kinetic energy on those are amazing.
