Default My first Robin Hood

I've broken many nocks, dented, bent, cracked many shafts and ruined plenny of vanes...but never did this before:


Expensive, but cool.

I guess the 125 grain tips may have done just the trick on tuning these X-weaves eh? Guess I can sight in with them now.

About a year ago I bought a new dozen carbon arrows.
I had them less than 48 hours and was down to 10 arrows.
That was my first Robin Hood.
Now I aim at different spots on the target

Shoot a Carbon Tech arrow and they will break at the nock by just having another arrow close to it in the target.

Good shooting!

Hopefully it is your last, especially shooting 3D.

I was actually just shooting for a group.

My bow is actually sighted in (@ 20 anyhow) for my Axis STs.

The X-Weave's weren't grouping well for me, and they're a bit stiffer than the Axis's so I decided to try a 125 grain head to see if that improved my grouping.

I'm still undecided on which arrow to go with, although I now only have three X-weaves left! I guess I'll just stick to the Axis STs for now till I can afford another half dozen X-weaves.
