Has anybody seen the new CX Maxima Mathews Edition arrows? How is the price compared to the regular CX Maxima Hunters?

I'm in need of some new arrows and would really like to try the CX Mathews arrows. Unfortunately, I don't believe any of the Mathews dealers in the area are CX dealers. :doh: It might be pretty tough to find these arrows. :(

I haven't seen them in person and it's entirely possible that design changes have occured between the initial promo pics and final production...

But, basically, the pics I saw looked just like a Maxima Hunter except they were done in "Lost Camo" and had a Mathews logo just outside the red bar with Maxima logo.

Man that is $11.50 per arrow and that does not include the broadhead. Those things should have beepers on them so you can find them 0nce they pass thru the deer.

WOW at those prices they had better be heat seeking and possess the capability of butchering the entire carcass. The price of top of the line stuff is through the roof.

That isn't too unreasonable. With my "special" wraps ($18), my GT Pro's were about $115.

There isn't multiple spine sizes, like the 250?

I checked while at the local Mathews dealer and they had them stock in the 350 (no 250) and the list price with blazer vanes uncut where 149.99. That's 12.49 an arrow. He had one left and have sold a dozen already.

The plain jane CX maxima hunters run on ebay around 115.00. and that's 9.58 an arrow. The brand new CX shafts that use kevlar run $150.00 on ebay. I hate to loose an arrow or even crack one but at $13 an arrow and that's not counting the broadhead I'd be :cry: :cry: :cry:

Wow, $150 is getting up there. I don't know if the local Mathews dealer sells CX or not, I don't think so.

Are they just too new that there aren't any 250 shafts, or will they only be 350's? :huh:
