For bone crushing, highly accurate performance, an arrow packed with the latest and greatest technology is a must.

For bone crushing, highly accurate performance, an arrow packed with the latest and greatest technology is a must. With all of the arrow manufacturers out there today, it is mandatory that the top brands create a product that passes the highest of standards.
Eastman Outfitters are the crafters of Carbon Express arrows; an extensive line of shafts that have stood the test of time afield and at the range. Their newest addition, the Maxima Hunter, has been engineered for the ultimate in downrange accuracy. This has been achieved with their new FOC (Front Of Center) design; made possible by spreading the weight gradually forward on the shaft of the arrow. This process reduces bend and torque significantly, and the result is one tough arrow that flies true at long distances with greater accuracy and stability. The toughness comes straight from Carbon Express' own BuffTuff Plus Crossweave on the rear third of the arrow and the BuffTuff Timber Illuzion Camo on the front two-thirds. When I took to the range with my new Maxima Hunters, I had a half-dozen 350's in hand. With a couple minor adjustments, I was breaking nocks at 20 yards. When I stepped back to 30, I had near-similar results. Arrow removal from the high-density 3-D targets was a breeze. This is made possible with the Maxima Hunter's ultra-slick finish.
Carbon Express guarantees straightness (+⁄- .0025-inch) and 360-degree spine consistency for every arrow. The Maxima Hunters are available in two models: the 250 (8 gpi) and 350 (8.9 gpi). Get them bare, or have them fletched with four-inch standard vanes or Blazer Vanes.
