True its your $$$ so you can spend it as you will , I used to shoot alot of competition indoor spots and outdoor 3D. I have used everything from cheap gold tips, cheap eastons, to expensive $200 a dozen target arrows in competition use and all of them find the X no matter what brand they are .
I guess what kills me most is of course these places want to sell you what they will make the most $$$ off of and they have never tried them personally . Easton makes fine arrows but you dont need FMJs to get the job done those are made the way they are to provide more penetration because they are heavier . Hell I shot my very first competition that had 164 shooters most of them sponsored , mathews, hoyt, bowtech , PSE etc shooting target rigs , adjustable sights and target arrows . I shot PSE carbon hunter arrows with screw in tips and my old Bowtech with fixed pins and ended up 28th out of 164 .
Dont let anyone tell you there is that much difference in a .002 arrow than a .006 straightness to make a bit of difference in the regular archers accuracy .
