I am currently shooting Carbon Express 3-D selects which are the straightest, most consistant spine I have found but are very expensive (180 clams for my last dozen custom fletched). I have read some stuff that straightness is not that important and it is mainly spine consistancey you should look at. I like Carbon Express arrows with the bull nocks but maybe I need to broaden my horizons and look elsewhere for something more affordable? Any thoughts or suggestions would be great. Oh and also in that same article they said you could shoot the spine out of arrows by them going into the target and thining the walls of the arrow each shot, they put a value to that but I cant remember how many, any thoughts on it?

(nothing gets a site going like a good arrow debate except maybe a my bow is better than your bow thread)
