Carbon arrows

Recommended Posts

UNIT

Can someone explain to me the major difference when it comes to the cost of carbon arrows? I am trying to figure out why there are some that you can get for $40 a dozen and others that go up over $100. Would I be better off spending more money or does it really matter?

With carbon arrows you typically get what you pay for. The more expensive ones have a higher tollerances as to weight and straightness.. Anotherwords they guarentee that of the doxen arrows they all weight within a percentage of each other and all are within so many degrees of straight. Cheeper arrows have more varience in weight from one arrow to another and arent as straight usually.

Hope that helps!

I would agree with everything that Dietz stated.I have always shot the med range carbon arrows and done very well hunting.You can buy the very expensive arrows but if you are using them for deer hunting only then I feel the medium priced arrows will serve you well.Its kind of like fishing rods.You can buy a 50 dollar rod or a 300 dollar rod.If for what you are doing the 50-75 dollar arrows serve you well then they will work just fine.If you are looking to split hairs then the more you spend on carbon arrows the better you may be.

I personally wont spend over $70 for a dozen of carbon arrows. I shoot Bemans ICS Hunters, and they can take alot of stress for how reasonabily priced they are.

-Good Luck!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
