Montec G5s. Fixed blade broadheads, scary sharp, excellent penetration.

As for the arrows themselves, I would do a carbon-fiber shaft with Blazer vanes. A little pricey, but it's worth it. You get what you pay for.

I love my Whitetail Extreme carbon arrows, put just about any broad head on it and it will kill deer

I use the cheapest carbon-fiber arrows I can find so I can afford to do a lot of practicing. I have rarely had one break except after passing through a deer and they are plenty accurate. I like Muzzy broadheads though... they just give me a little extra confidence for the shot although I think most deer would die from anything that you shot through their lungs.

I have to say the gold tips...Gold tip sent me 2 FULL cases while in Iraq so I could set up an archery range for the Soldiers...So I stick with them and luckily enough they are a very good arrow at a fair price...Muzzies are all I have used..I have thought about trying the montecs out of curiosity but the muzzies do so well it would be pure curiosity that will make me try them this year..still havn't decided I think the results will be the same..dead mule deer

I have Easton St Epic Jr. They've held up to my misses and my lessons learned.
They fly straight and are a great match for my bow.
Shoot 100 grain broadheads and field points.

Hengst, glad to hear about Gold tips being sent to the sandbox. When I was in Viet Nam soldiers weere pretty much loathed by the publec and nothing like that ever happened to my knowledge.
My favorites for several years have be Carbon Force Maxima Hunters with blazer vanes and Rage 2 blade broadheads. They are very accurate and put them down fast.

Del,
That is something, even when younger, I could never understand and disliked was how the Viet Nam vets were treated. Ya'll had it real rough and the homefront (public) did not help the situation none at all. I am really gratefull how we are being treated. I think it is mostly due to you Viet Nam Vets that were treated poorly that that Soldiers of today have been treated so well.....BTW mathews sent us quite a few Genesis bows..they were great to teach and practice on for the newbies...I will definately support the companies that supported us so well and spread the word when I can

Take a look at the Cabela's and Bass Pro store brands. BP (Redhead) has a sale going on right now (Feb/10).
