Post Damned Black Ice!!! Breaking archery equipment.....

Put a new sight on the Black Ice today, shooting it to try to get it set up as my back-up bow. Shot at 24yds, GREAT, moved back to 32, and that shot seemed a couple inches high, next shot.... and the damned thing busted something..... Sounded funny, then I KNEW what it was.......





And you guessed it, those CHEAP Cabela's arrows...


I've lost 16 of them this way, 6 of them just setting sights up....


Out $5.50...No big deal!!!

It is, Jerm, I really like this bow, ALMOST as well as my AM35, and the AM35 is still what I consider the NICEST shooting bow ever....

May be under spined. Lucky some of it didn't go into your arm. I'm thinkin I would spend a couple dollars more on arrows. Beamans are great arrows for the money.

You'd think the novelty would've worn off by now. You make Ohio people look like were some bumpkins from Ill.

If you used the same pin one should be below the other.

Cabela's arrows are beamans. Next arrows I get I think will be the new MFX shafts. They finally got the weight down. Great arrow for the money and smooth as silk. Very quiet on the draw.

Pic is of an arrow that he shot into the back of another arrow, not a cheap arrow that broke when shot. Nice shooting
