With a broadhead I think I could shoot around corners.

But actually shoots fine with a field point. It’s the arrow with only one fletch. It’s right there playing with the rest of them.

I just thought it interesting that it grouped repeatedly with the others. I shot under my 3D target and hit a rock.

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?

I lost both fletchings when it hit the rock. It hit hard and bounced back. It’s a brass 75 grain insert and I seriously doubt I can get it out without trashing the shaft.

Ha! It must be broke cause it sure ain’t straight.

It’s the cock feather that is left and my anchor is when it touches my nose so that helps.

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

Mine shoot good bare shafted to 20.

I was afraid if I apply heat, when the glue lets go the carbon will split. I don’t know. Never dealt with a bent carbon that wasn’t broke.

This was 31 yards.

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.

Cool. I’ll do that. Thanks for the info.

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.

With the days getting shorter Im already having trouble getting home before dark. Shooting under a dusk to dawn light.

I have news - the shaft is trashed.

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

From: Tree

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

From: tradmt

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

Jimbob it was really 31 yards.

I am going to try the tip that Timbuktu gave. I'll report the outcome.

I have news - the shaft is absolutely perfect. And... that’s an absolute.

Thanks Timbuktu for a great piece of information.

No splits. Perfect.

I didn’t find but 50 grains of insert. The 25 grain section disappeared.

From: Timbukto
Date: 12-Oct-18




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

From: BATMAN
Date: 12-Oct-18




@ 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??

From: Timbukto

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