Whats the best Carbon Arrows?

I am in the market for some new Carbon Arrows and I am wondering what you have found to be the best brand. I have PSE brand right now and they are really fast but they are a little light and they seem to be very inconsistant. Anyone found any great arrows they love? I shoot a PSE split limb at around 65 lbs draw weight.

I also wanted to add that I was looking at getting some Beman arrows but I heard that they are inconsistant. Anyone found any truth to that?

Ive used the Beman 340 Camo Hunters for about 4 years. Havent had a problem with them so far. Not saying there the best, Just have never had a reason to try anything else.

I shoot gold tips and they've worked great for me, i've had two break on me and the first one broke from a mule deer snapping it off with it's front shoulder. Made a heck of a snapping sound. Also had a whitetail bust one off while running through the trees. In my opinion they are one of the best arrows. I shot beman's for awhile too. They worked great but didn't seem quite as consistent or as strong as the gold tips i shoot now.

I was shooting the high grade carbon express's $(90-100) a dozen but am going to switch to Maximas for next year. I show 20 fps faster with these. Haven't tried them out for grouping yet though. 3d shooting season is hear now, so I will give that a try.

I've got Carbon Express Terminator Hunter Select 4560's and haven't had a bit of problems with them. They group as well as I can shoot them. Never chronographed them, so I don't know what kind of speed I'm getting on them. I've only shot one deer with them, a small doe. I got a complete pass-through so I couldn't tell you about breaking one off that way. Only shattered one arrow practicing, and that's when I missed my Block and hit what I was using to prop it up.

I use Beeman carbons and they seem to work fine. I would say most carbons will work fine

I tried a couple of different carbon arrows and can't find one that will group for me. I still have the best luck with aluminum XX75's. Why would this be? An aluminum group will be around 4-5 inches at 20, 30, and 40 yards. Carbons will only get a group around a foot? Any help???
