    Has anyone tried out these arrows yet.Im thinking of trying them they are a sharp looking arrow.And Ive wathched the video on them.Not for sure on all the flexing in the middle of the arrow.They only have two spine and they are a 250 at 8.11 gpi and 350 at 9.07 gpi.also they say 2 spines cover 40-90 lbs.I shoot a 26.25 inch arrow,100 grain head and have a monster chill with mathews qad,hogg-it sights at 66lb.draw is 28 inch.

    I have been reading on these but still not alot of info.also have been reading on hexx easton arrows.with spine weight on these it makes it hard to come to a good final weight.I dont really know what is suppose to make these so special at these spine weights.any one know about the hexx also.its a toss up between them.either one of them or stay with gold tips.

    All top arrow will do the job , i have a order of Red coming, i can’t wait to try them , Easton aluminum  chart was the norm then came gold tips carbon using different chart and Carbon Express , there is no universal system for spine rating except the actual spine deflection one , so 250 ,350 or 955 are not the actual  spine deflection , some 250 are equal to 450 speck , the Red zone is the new one to accommodate speed bow with more KE hitting power , i sure hope it live up to the  hype, the concept sure sound good {#emotions_dlg.mathews_monster_blue}

    http://www.carbonexpressarrows.com/shaft-selector if you use this selection method you’ll see how Maxima hunter now has three different models all rated to a advertised spine or deflection property.

    CE has not updated their web site so the new Reds are not listed yet to see how they are rated. If they are anything like the Maxima Hunter or Maxima shafts they a high quality made shaft. And if they are the same then you’ll be best served by using the slection guide method step one and then two or OT2 software to select the proper model for your setup. I think you’ll have better tuning success with the right spined arrow.

    I understand that each brand sets a different spine,like gold tip mine is 400,at maxima red zone it is 250 at easton it is 400.what im curious about is like at easton 400 spine is 7.4 gpi and is listed as hunting arrow.red zone is 250 spine is 8.11 gpi and is a hunting arrow.easton at 7.4 comes in lite on arrow.red zone comes in reall close and gold tip has a new 340 velocity pro at 8.2 which is a little stiffer but i spoke to tech rep at gold tip and he said the 340 spine should work perfect in my setup do to the 400 spine in this arrow is just getting it to the stifness level.i agree that all top arrows in each brand will get job done but i have found that some arrows dont shoot the same.at the cost a man cant hardley buy many of each to see.our dealers around here dont stock alot of high end arrows.so order and wait.One dealer says he is getting red zone in dont know when though.

    Simple example if you use the CE draw weight chart at 60# and a 26″ draw you come up with a 73# adjusted draw weight. Put that to use on the arrow selection chart you see you are in the 250 model size. At 70# and a 28″ draw you are pushing the outer limits of a 350 model and might tune better using 450 model especially if you use a heavy point weight. If you use a 29″ draw or higher you are into the 450 models with the 70# draw weight.  This is based on spine and not grain per inch or the weight of the shaft.

    Using the On Target 2 software by pinwheel you’ll see how this works with your setup using a variety of manufacturer’s of arrows. It will tell you if you are selecting a weak spined shaft verses one that is a good match-up. And GPI is just another factor and has little to do tuning the right shaft to your setup. I’d recommend this software for anyone using a bow for target or bowhunting.

    The Carbon Express site has been updated – Maxima RED

    The arrow and shaft selection charts have been updated as well. There is a chart specifically for the new RED.

    Remember not to cut the shaft shorter than 27 inches.

    I am currently shooting the Hexx .400, and I will tell you I like them but they are on the really light side.  I installed the HP insert instead of the Microlites that came with the arrows, just to increase overall weight.  Other than the color of wrapping and slight difference in gpi, I don’t see the value in price compared to the Bloodlines.  In fact, I will going back to the bloodlines and fletching them myself.  The Hexx arrows fly great out of my setup, but are not worth the price and are too light for me. IMO
