    Well Sammy what are you setting your sights on with this question? For hunting or 3D or both? What point weight? What do you desire in your arrows like speed vs. penetration or a combination?  In my opinion any one of these shafts setup properly in the right spine will give your shooting optimal accuracy.

    As good as those GT 5575’s were shooting for you last saturday, I’d stick with the Gold Tips.

    This turkey season… Couple of months… And 3D… from now on

    I’d be shooting 100gn points

    Mostly speed for turkeys and 3D… But definitly good penitration

    And great accuracy!

    Hope this helps

    Yeah, this is Drew.  Considering you were only a week or two into learning that new BT release, I’d say you were shooting great.  I doubt I could’ve taken my Stan to the shoot and shot that well, even if I could’ve found it in one of the 20,000 boxes of crap in our new house, and I’ve had that release for a while now.  Haven’t shot too much with it at actual targets while aiming, but I’ve done a lot of blank bailing and string practice with it.

    On a serious note though, I’ve always thought highly of easton arrows and arrow components, even though my MR7 seems to like the GT Velocity 300’s the best.  I build all my personal arrows with Easton G nocks, no matter what brand of shaft I settle on, and have been very happy with several easton arrows I’ve tried along the way.  They always meet advertised specs.  Gold Tip makes a good arrow too, but I have had bad luck in the past with GT nocks breaking on release, which cost me a decent buck the last single time I shot an arrow with a GT nock on it.   The nock breaking on release caused the arrow to fly low, and I hit the buck on the inside of the opposite front leg below the buck’s chest.  Never found much blood or a dead buck. That’s the reason I build GT arrows with PDP G-nock bushings and Easton G-Nocks.  Even if I’m not hunting, I don’t want a nock breaking on release, causing a semi dry-fire or low impact and possible lost or ruined arrow.

    I don’t know much about CX arrows as I’ve never shot them.

    For real though, if I were you, I’d stick with the GT 5575’s for now, especially since I just gave a package with four 5575 sfhafts in it to my secretary to be mailed to you  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_laughing}

    There’s also two GT 7595 shafts in the package as well.  They might be a little too stiff for your current setup, but since you may need a longer draw one day, you might can grow into them.  You may can use them to test your setup should you ever require a longer draw or higher DW, thus resulting in the need for a stiffer arrow.

    I’m glad I could give the arrows away to somebody who’ll enjoy them.  They’ve been sitting in my garage since I bought a Mathews Drenalin in 2007.

    haha, good point!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Thanks again for those! They’ll be put to good use! I’ll look into easton nocks and bushings!

    Thanks for the nice gesture, good advice, and nice complements! {#emotions_dlg.mathews_applause}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    I’ll keep in touch and try not to send too many shots through that MR7!!! {#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile}
