As stated, I am picking up my first bow. I have shot my buddies hundreds of times, but never had the final impulse to buy my own...finally I did... It comes with 6 practice arrows, but I a sure they are Walmart brand of some sort. I have upgraded the sights, stabilizers, etc... What arrows and broad heads do you prefer for the kill arrows? I know its ideal to shoot the same arrows for practice as kill arrow... Any tips
It is the PSE Stinger Extreme Pro package.

I am a die hard Havoc fan. I shot carbon express maxim hunter 350 but really itís more of what flys true to me. Good luck with the new bow. Itíll get you hooked

Been using Easton arrows since 91, just what I started with and have stuck true. 5mm Easton axis are what I'm currently using with a Montec G5 100gr broadhead. If I'm hunting more open or windy areas I will switch to an expandable head but not loyal to a specific one as of now and anytime I take the expandable heads, I shoot my bow with them or a practice one first. It "could" change point of impact.

5mm easton axis 260 spine - 50 grains of brass up front. I had victory VAP 300 spines before i tried the axis... I hated them, they broke on every animal i shot. I even broke one on a black buck doe. I've yet to snap one of the Easton Axis arrows.

I keep 3 Rage Trypans and 2 slick trick magnums in the quiver

I used Easton Axis 400ís at 28Ē for 70 pound draw weight. With a 100 grain G5 Stryker head they weigh out close to an even 400 grains. When I had to lower my draw weight last year due to shoulder problems they worked just as well.
