Carbon Express VS. Beman

So whats the preferred and superior of the two shaft brands below?

A) Carbon Express
More epensive about $112 for a dozen, its funny its more expensive being made in Korea.

B) Beman, $84 for a dozen.

No input from me other than clarification

What are the specs on each? What's the tolerance for shaft straightness and weight? I just fling Bass Pro brand (Red Head) @ $50 a dozen. It doesn't sting so bad when you end up taggin a tree and finding only the titanium boradhead (which was twice the cost of the shaft).

I have both. There is no discernible difference in accuracy provided they are spined right for your bow.

I worked as a tech in an archery shop when I was in high school and I tried all kinds of shit. I have always liked gold tips the best. Both Bemans and CA's tend to shatter when they hit hard shit but the GT's are the most durable by far IMO. They are also just as good if not better quality-wise than the other 2.

X2 on the GoldTips, very durable shafts and I have found them to be plenty consistent and accurate.
