    GT XT Hunters are great. Also. price range is acceptable, doesn’t put a big dent in the wallet. :thumbup

    :D :D :thumbup :thumbup I Shoot Predator 300 for everything. They maybe a shade stiff @65#, at least they were on my XT. They are running perfect on the Dren @ 70#.

    Of those you listed, I like the Axis shafts. I love the penetration I get with the thinner shafts. But the GT pro hunters are a +/- .001″ straightness……if that’s the actual, real life guarantee, then I’d try them.

    If you have the chance to buy a half doz, you might try that to see which shoots best out of your set up. I know that I do notice a difference between the accuracy between my Axis ST shaft and the Axis FMJ shafts I’m using for hunting now. and there’s only a .002″ difference in straightness between the two kinds of shaft [=}=]

    At 27″ DL the PSE Competition Pro 200 (.424) w/ 100 grain tip and Blazers will be a little on the stiff side, but not bad. The Gold Tip 3555 will be way too weak and the 5575 (.400) will be way stiff.

    You might also consider the Carbon Express CX 200 shafts (.458) should spine very well with your setup 65#DW 27″DL w/100 gr tip Blazers etc.

    I shoot beman ICS and have tried their elite series which is like going from the XT to the pro in gold tip.I have to say that for most of us myself included,don’t waste the extra bucks(yes I know) on the higher end arrows ,you and I will never see or need to see the difference.What I mean by that is this,if you shoot competitively and I mean on a pro level and it really matters that you tattoo the “X” each and every time,then I say buy ‘em,but for hunters and general target shooting and even some 3-D,I say no way.

    I like the Axis, I just square them and index them and the spin pretty damn good. Cheap and damn near indestructable.

    In that case an arrow with a .400 – .380 spine will work well for you. I’d recommend the GT 5575.

    I voted for Axis. I shot GT Pros last year and picked up some Beman Black Max 340s this winter. My bow quieted down and they fly just as good as the GT Pros did. A few fps slower but I’m sure the deer won’t notice. Nothing wrong with GTs, I wanted a heavier arrow.

    I just got a dozen GT Pros and was excited to see how they performed…fantastic. Maybe it was the switch from 4″ vanes to Blazers, but anyway they seemed to out perform my older GT XT’s slightly.

    Don’t forget to try Carbon Xtreme Maxima’s, One of the best shooting arrows I’ve shot. :thumbup

    They are good :thumbup , but heavier…and sometimes that’s what you want.

    CT Whitetail XP 40/65 would work too. The CT Cheetah 3Ds would give the best speed, but you’d have to take care in building them or you’ll be under the 5 gr/lb warranty limit.
