In January while the tigers and brown snakes are out I don't really want to be taking my gun dog out and really not that keen on doing a lot of walking in the bush myself. So I've been thinking of trying to sit in a tree overlooking a mineral lick or a bit of beans or hay with the bow.

I'm looking to upgrade my shafts, currently use Easton Powerflight 340 spine. I've considered CE maxima red 250's but really I'm open to any good value for money shafts. Looking to spend under $200 a dozen.

Thank you,

Jack

Nothing wrong with CE at all. I also shoot the Carbon Force Radial X Weaves. Love my Maxima's and X Weaves

I've been shooting the easton flat lines for several years. Very good LW shaft. i.e. low gpi

Thanks guys,

The only thing against any of these suggestions is that we have to have a minimum of 400gn for an arrow/broadhead for hunting here, so light arrows are actually probably one of the only things I don't want!

I only use 125gn broadheads just to give me that extra 25gn weight, which helps.

Actually, with a 125 gr head you should be over 400 gr. I'm at 383 with a 100 gr head. Of course that depends on your shaft length and wt of your vanes.

I shoot the Easton Carbon Force. Haven't shot a heavy arrow in 10 years...
