I have decided to enter the 3-d competition at the Huntsman Senior games in St. George, Utah in October. I will be shooting in the 60 to 64 year old age division. I am an experienced archer and have shot winter 3-d indoor leagues for many years. This will be my first serious competition. I have always used carbon arrows because of their durability. In league play, shafts tend to get beat up by others who shoot with you. I have found that aluminum shafts are more accurate, but the durability is not the same. I also like fat shafts for line cutters. For those of you who shoot competitively, what shaft do you recommend? I might add that this is a marked yardage competition so I do not need the light fast shafts to help with distance judging. Longest target will be 40 to 40 yards max.

Fat Boys seem to be the most popular choice, especially for marked yardage. I see a lot of Gold Tip shafts as well.

Victory and Carbon Tech make lighter and faster "fat" shafts if you prefer for unmarked yardages.

I use a PS23 which is kind of an in between sized shaft. Small/light enough to keep decent speed, but fat enough to help with a line break now and then. When I went to the Metropolis ASA this summer I was surprised at how many people using the same exact arrow for the same reasons. Figured I must be doing something right :-)

There is only one acceptable option. Gold Tip Pro 22! ;)
