arrows

What kind of arrows would you guys recomend? I only shoot carbons. Right now i shoot carbon cx's in 200 gr. I have a problem with the nocks falling out and getting pushed in and not staying where their suppose to. In the past ive tried those vapor blackhawks but the fletchings sucked. Ive also tried the beeman hunter 500's and i think i might try those again, but i didnt like the way they flew with a fixed blade broadhead. I got expandables now. Any recomendations??? Also what kind of vanes should i shoot. I have helical but i dont know if i like em. any help would be appreciated thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have Beman Hunter 400's and Beman ICS Classic 400's. I like them both a lot. I think beman arrows are a good choice.

I have been shooting Easton LightSpeed 400's. Nice arrow I think. Bryan down at Cabin Fever in Victoria recommended em' and have been happy since.

make sure your bow is tuned and any vane or feather will work with any broadhead. try paper tuning or bare shaft. I use the beeman 400's with a 3 inch vane with a 6 degree offset.

eyeguy, my bow is tuned.......i just did this spring. It shot groups so tight i was slicing vanes and the arrows were straight and quick just how i like em. Its just i havent been so happy with everything ive ever tried. thanks for the suggestion though.

PSE Carbon Force Radial X-weave hunters...great arrow.

what poundage and what kind of rest? drawlenght? the nock problems with the cx200's may be a result for a weak arrow for your setup...

if you are slicing vanes I wouldn't change a whole lot. I really like the wasp jackhammer 75 grain head with the 1 1/4 inch cut. Very deadly and flies like your matched field point. I used regular broadheads in the past but switched in 2001. I like the fact that I don't have a sharp blade exposed to accidentally cut something and they put the animal down as fast an any regular head I ever used. I may switch to a 100 grain since they make it in a 1 1/4 inch cut now. I don't care for the real wide cuts. Good luck out there. My buddy from where I hunt out of state called and said there were 16 bucks in one of the fields 2 nights ago! oh boy!

bassboy...with your drawlength i'm assuming your arrows are 30" or better, the CX200's and Beeman 500s are too weak for your set up, probably why the nocks were popping out. ever get any cracking on the nock end?

checking the arrow charts, you should be going with CarbonForce Radial X weave 300s CarbonExpress CX300s or Beeman400 or 340's Easton 340s

i'm assuming 100gr points. lighter points can stiffen the arrow, and you may get by with the cx200s or beeman500s. conversely, heavier point will weaken the spine...

just some shop thoughts...

good luck and good shooting!

I love the carbon express Maximas, very happy with them and the spine is nice and tight.

All i have ever shot in my life is EASTON,and have never had a problem with any that I have shot.This year I will shoot my eveloutions,which I dont think they make anymore and when more are needed ill go back to the ACC arrow.They shoot straight and have never had a arrow explode or splinter except one that hit my metal machine shed,missed the target.

THe problem with the Comida this year was that Twister Released them mid season. By the time they were ready to sell to stores all the stores were done buying for the year. So I can hardly blame coffee. If you need to blame anybody its Twister for getting out to late in the year... You can order them online. If you e-mail them, and say you want the comida they will sell them to you. They just do not have them on the web page yet.

FYI, Cabelas in Owa had some.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
