Does anyone have any recommendations for a new carbon arrow? I'm looking to upgrade for next season. Thanks!

I shot the new carbon express pile driver pass through extreme shafts last year. They are small diameter shafts that weigh as much as the fmj shafts but are all carbon. Can't say enough about them. They are accurate and fly well
Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

I have been shooting the Victory VAP shafts this season.
Awesome arrows. They fly great and penetration is incredible. I shot a pig, about 80lbs, it was working up a hill towards me and at 25 yards I took a hard quartering towards me shot. It went in just above the ear and exited the off rear leg and buried in the ground about 8 inches. I was shooting a 4 blade WAC'EM. Killed a buck later in the season with the same arrow, just sharpened the blades.
I made the switch to Easton Injexions about a year ago and have not looked back.
Been shooting Easton axis. They seem to be very good arrows as we'll.
Black Eagle Deep Impacts, Rampage are both great shafts. Easton Axis or FMJ are good. There's a lot of great arrows you just need to figure out what is the best fit for what you want and your bow.

I recently compared the Easton FMJ's, the Easton A/C Injexions, and the Victory VAP's. The VAP's out penetrated the Eastons to 60yds, despite being 48 grains lighter.
The Injexions easily outperformed the FMJ's. All of the arrows were extremely accurate. For half the money of the Injexions the VAP's are definitely worth a look.
BTW I shoot the Injexions so bias is not an issue.
Shot VAPs with DeepSix inserts this year and liked them. Didn't care for the outserts that VAP has.
I have shot most of the carbon arrow over the years. I have yet to find a brand that doesn't shoot decent. Find the correct weight and spine brand name carbon arrow put good fletching and a good broadhead on it and try it out. I personally shoot the Easton ACC pro hunters on one bow and Carbon express on another bow. Good performance out of both setups.
