I have shot the Carbon Express Maxima Hunters for years. Never an issue. I fletch them with the Rayzr 2" feathers tipped with Slick Trick Viper heads. Fly true as any set up.

What a question! Probably as many different arrows as reponses as we all have our own favorite that works well for our set up. Personally I use the Easton Realtree Bloodline with the 2 inch Bohning Blazer vanes and the G5 Striker fixed blades. That works for me. I would go to your bow shop and ask their advice. Yes, he will recommend something they carry but if they are honest they will give you a good recommendation. If you order online somewhere you will need to get them cut and have inserts put in etc. I wouldn't buy them online and then ask the bowshop to cut them for me. (unless he doesn't mind doing that). I am not a real bow set up kind of guy so I rely a lot on the bowshop I go to and have confidence in his experience. Maybe he doesn't carry what you want but he might be able to order them and them its a win-win. Just my two cents.

Also be careful to ask them how they measure if you have them cut a set to length for you.  I thought we all used the same approach to measuring shafts, but learned the hard way on my last dozen that is not true.   I always thought the norm was to measure from the root of the nock to the end of the insert - the guys at Gander Mountain here went from the tail end of the nock, so I lost almost 3/8" - doesn't sound like much but I was trying to take off as much length (mass) as I could already, and that additional 3/8" just about caused me grief on my setup.

Whatever my Pro Shop guy recommends for my bow. I got some new arrows for this season as they upgraded the version I was using. Good luck with your set up.
