Default First Robinhood

Don't know if this is the right place but I got my first Robinhood with my new Mathews Switchback. But it's going to cost me I just fletch a dozen new Beman Camo Hunters and was practicing in the backyard I had already shot a few arrows and decided to check to see how fast they come out with the chrono so I fired one and it came up at 241fps fired the second and straight up it's clacker and that was from 18m so here are some pics for all to see. and for those that want to know my arrows weight 469gr and my bow is 60# and 29" draw.

I did it twice within 5 minutes of each other a few weeks back. I was shooting CX Maximas and I would just love to havemy arrows back. The first one or two robinhoods are cool and gives great satisfaction, but after a while you're just throwing expensive arrows in the garbage.

Nice shooting and sorry, lol. I screwed up today too... Got to the club, it was kinda nasty drizzly/foggy out so I just shot at the target that was already up at 30 yards, Didn't shoot at different spots as usual and smacked one... It started splitting the shaft but no RH, just a wannabe. Reminded me I need to order some new shafts [:@]
