    Default Carbon Express Quality

    EVERY time I Robin Hood one, they shatter.

    I shot aluminum for 20 years and only managed 1 Robin Hood.

    I have been shooting carbons for 3 years now and this makes 5 Robin Hoods.

    Just a little bragging guys. At 56 and I can still split them.

    Nice shootin' Dave! I can not claim even one Robin Hood under my belt. I've chipped off many nocks thus far, but have yet to split a shaft. I use to shoot at an indoor range where they had a Robin Hood wall of fame. The lucky ones had multiple entries

    Luck probably has a "lot" to do with it for me.

    I just bought some Carbon Express arrows at Archer's Den. I hope I don't do that, they are too expensive!

    I have arrowed 4 mule deer with them and never a hint of shattering. Good arrows!

    Perhaps you are like a fine wine, Dave. You get better with age!

    I did that once, when I was testing a bow at Full Draw when they were in business. Funny thing was, it was the first time I had shot a bow. At least I thought it was funny. i ended up buying a complete set up, so I do not think Tim felt to bad about a lost arrow.

    You won't have one break either. You have to shoot them in the end with a 70# BowTech and a field point.

    I really like the Carbon Express line of arrows, the Maxima 250's for my Mathews MQ1 and the 350's for the new 70lb Drealin scream! I find them fairly tough, tough as a carbon arrow can be. You definitely don't want to lose too many of them. I just brought up two dozen of the 350's and cost me around $240. The one problem is if you can shoot well and shoot often you will chip off notches, split fletchings, and robin hood several in a year.

    Does anyone seriously still hunt with aluminum arrows?

    Default condolensces

    My heartfelt sympathy for your losses Dave. Ouch, losing arrows at that rate makes me feint of heart. I guess I have just to much of my mother, who grew up dirt poor, in me to be able to warm up to losing arrows.
    I have heard it is harder to hurt rebar, maybe you should try that?
    Ok, so congrats, you do seem mighty proud of yourself. Just remind me that if we ever shoot together I get to go last!

    Shoot at different spots. I long ago gave up group shooting my arrows at under 50 yards. For my hunting bows I simply use those 2" stick on orange spots and spread them around.

    Carbon Express Maximas are fantastic arrows.
