Question is there really any difference in a "Make"?????

I know arrows are different from the perspective of "weight", "wall thickness", etc.......

But is there really any difference in the "brand name" of an arrow?????

Let's say a gold tip compared to a carbon express??????

Of is it just a preference????

What say you?????

So, you're saying that Maximas don't have an arrow with the same thickness of a Gold Tip?????

When I switched from aluminum to carbon I started using rhinos 45/70s and haven't had a reason to try anything else.

diameter and wall thickness are measurements of aluminum arrows both combined determine the spine of the arrow.

Carbon arrows don't use those measurements. They are in a basic sense only rated for certain lb bows with draw lenght being another factor. As with aluminum arrows, you need the right spine for your set up but it is a different chart than the aluminum chart.

When buying arrows aluminum or carbon you need the correct spine for your draw weight/draw length. What makes one arrow superior to the next is the straightness. Usually measured in +/- .001's of an inch. the straighter the arrow the better as less variation arrow to arrow.
