Carbon arrows

5 posts in this topic

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!

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
