    I have been trying to decide between the Gold Tip Xt Hunter 5575 and the Carbon Express Maxima’s 250 or 350. I have a 28” draw length, will probably use a 28” arrow, a 100 gr. tip, and have a 61# draw as of now. I might move it up a little as time goes on, but not right now. Which arrows would be best for my setup? Thanks in advance!!!

    A friend of mine has a 61# hoyt vetrix 29″ draw and ditched his GT (they were older ones) and went to the Maxima 250’s and he loves em. they scream out of his bow. I shoot the 350’s and love em.

    I love my Maxima 350’s. I just bought another dozen tonight. I have had no problem with them, except when I steped on one……. “crack”.

    So for my setup, would the 350’s be better than the 250’s if I did go with the Maxima’s over the XT hunters?

    If you ever shoot 70lbs out of your bow, you need to shoot the 350’s.

    Unquestionably go with the 250’s. I shoot them out of my 63 pound bow and they fly fast, straight and true. The 350’s will cost you much needed speed out of your 61 pounds. I’ve got my 250’s down to 326 grains with 85 grain points and blazers and they fly as fast as my heavier 350’s from the 70 pounder.
    Last one out turn off the lights!

    I have almost your exact same setup. I went with the Gold Tip 5575’s and I couldn’t be happier. Those are great arrows! :thumbup

    At 61lbs, the 350 is WAY to stiff.

    The 250 is the way to go.

    Here are some screen shoots from AA with all 3 arrows.

    CE 350

    CE 250

    GT 55/75

    I dropped GT and went to CE, there have been issues with GT arrows coming apart lately and have had one already blowup and shoot into my left arm, I decided to switch.

    Go to the CE web site and watch their videos on just how tough there shafts are. [=}=]
