Each of us have our choice of best hunting carbon arrows, name your best top 3 brands of hunting arrows from accuracy to deep / hard penetrating arrows.

Mine is Beman Matrix ( old arrows ) and Carbon Express Terminators. Those arrows I bought 15 years ago, need to find a new choice of arrows since they don't make the ones I use anymore. Had two dozen of those arrows.

I'm shooting the Victory RIP's and have great results. Easton Axis would be my next choice.

Went to Bass Pro, bow technician was real helpful and gave lots of tips and advice. He recommended a few brands of arrows, he preferred the the Blackout XL Pro arrows ( .001 straightness ) and got some Ram Cat broad heads to go with it and some green lighted nocks. I had my bow set at 70 lbs previously and was not able to hold it too steady and decreased it to 60 lbs and able to keep it steady shot after shot without too much fatigue and aching arms. It was a learning experience listening to advice given by the technician. Talk about great customer service.

I shoot axis and have been very pleased. Shot Beman and nothing wrong with them. Shot the VAP and won't shoot them again.

I shoot a T/D recurve and used to shoot tapered port orford cedar shafts for years but recently ordered some Gold Tip Warrior fletched carbon arrows and the weights for the inserts. Not the best carbon arrows but I am only shooting 35 yards max distance so I don't need to go top shelf. I used to shoot Beman ICS Hunters with my Mathews LX because I could get the shafts for $34.99 a dozen and bought 5 dozen on the spot lol. They would wear down after the insert no matter how much unscented soap or silicone you put on them while shooting 3D tournaments and would usually only last 2 years before I either had to cut them down and give them to my buddies kid or junk them. 3D tournaments were every Sunday from January till September up north and I used to go every weekend so for a cheap price I had plenty of arrows. When I was shooting a lot and in my prime, I would take all my shots from the compound stakes while instinctive shooting. Then I got married lol.
