Doesn't that look contrary to the saying about carbon arrows,"straight or broke"?

One fletch? Is that somehow positioned on the arrow to offset the bend at the tip?

Id bet the arrow is fine and the insert or threads or both are bent

Mine shoot good bare shafted to 20.

Don't apply heat take off nock insert a drill bit in the shaft not tight or super loose. You want it to slide freely. Put nock back on now whip it the the shaft in a safe direction. The insert and drill bit are gonna bust out there like Butch and Sundance.

Are you shooting at night? I want a 24/7 365 range! Looks like Easton axis carbons. I like the full 75 grain brass inserts up front in mine also. But they don't like rocks either.

I have news - the shaft is trashed.

Did you really shoot that group at 31 yards? That is really good

And we worry so much about tuning and bent arrow hits the same place, who would've thought.

The insert and point shank are bent, carbons are great.

Glad it worked. I like that method better than heat. However sometimes I never see the insert again

@ Timbukto?? Maybe somebody tape a clear plastic garbage bag over the end of the shaft where the insert and head will(hopefully) be flung?? just an idea??

They come out like rockets. I usually try to from Fire the into a through something like sheetrock or or cans of mineral spirits
