Angry Gold Tips, GRRRR.

i got a 6 pack of gold tip arrows, and guess what after shooting them 3 of them the knocks broke off upon it releasing the string, not the knocks coming out of the arrows, but almost shattering leaving peices still inside the arrows. Maybe the knocks are to small for the string but why im angry is that dicks wont replace them, they said its highly unlikely and then suggested i hit the arrows against each other striking the target. I even told them the pieces for broken knocks had landed at my feet, i'll be taking my buisness else where. i dont need to spend 40$ or so then not be able to get a refund when they break, and its not even my fault!!!!!

I shoot gold tips. Never any problems with the knocks. Last day I was out target shooting I had a fletching fly off mid flight.

It doesn't sound like it was the arrows fault.. It must be the nock or if your string is warn down alot it will make it thinner so your arrow wont fit as well.

I've shot the same exact brand of goldtips for over 6 years and I have never had a problem with them. IMO, they are the best carbon arrows out there.

Contact Goldtip and tell them of the problem. I had a dozen Gold Tips a few years ago that came with yellow nocks and I had several of them break, just as you discribe. When I contacted GoldTip, they told me to stop using that batch and sent me a dozen new nocks.
Apparently some of thier nocks are more britel and break easily.

I love gold tip arrows, have a dozen never had a problem with any part of the arrow, heck i even hit a rock with one (flexed it and checked for splintering) and i shoot it to this day.
