    Carbon arrow close call

    Just a reminder to check your carbon arrows for cracks. This arrow is a ?quiver arrow?. I don?t use it to practice only to hunt so it has very rarely been shot if at all. Hit the release and heard a loud pop. Arrow broke off right at the fletching. Lucky I didn?t have to make a trip to the ER!

    My brother wasn't so lucky his broke about 5 inches from the tip and the shaft was driven into the back of his hand.

    Thanks for the tip. I give mine a bend every once in a while, but I may have to do it a bit more often.
