    That is awesome! What type of re-curve do you have? Do you hunt with it as well or just target?

    I use Carbon for my Bow, even though I use a Cross Bow.

    I love carbon, I use gold tip devastators. One thing I do recommend is to flex the be for you use them. So many people getting splintered arrows in the hand. Just a safety thought!

    Really? That is the first I heard of them splintering, especially before they were ever used. I wonder what would cause that?

    Flex Testing Routine

    To inspect the arrow for defects, hold it on both ends and flex it away from yourself (and others) while visibly and audibly checking for splinters, cracks, nicks, or dents. Rotate and repeat this inspection several times to make certain the arrow shaft is not damaged in any way. If you find the arrow to be damaged - destroy it immediately. Shooting damaged arrows can result in arrow failure and possible bodily injury.

    Wear causes it! safety first with arrows. Flex it first to check it for safety.

    Ok that looks like it would hurt.

    More great tips, and some I will be using for sure.
