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!

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
