Shooting carbon arrows? Checking for cracks?
I broke one the other day; shooting from an angle, hitting an arrow on the arrow's side. But it got me thinking about cracks. Graphite in flyrods is vulnerable to nicks, so wouldn't arrows be vulnerable to nicks too?
Found good information at the Hunter's Friend website, which verified that the "incidental contact" of target shooting can cause problems, and suggested a good way to check your arrows for problems . Check out the photo sent in by Percy Giblin, Houston, TX. The Flex Test seems like a hand-y safety tip.
