Default What are your opinions about arrow lube and arrow removal?

Im an average guy, not going to lie, sometimes i still have trouble pulling arrows from my rhinehart rhino target. My arrows go in pretty deep even at 30-50 yrds. So what lubes would you recommend? Also which arrow removers are the best? Ive been told there are mechanical removers

I wouldn't waste money on specialized arrow lubes, silicone spray or armorall works just fine. I only treat the front end of my shafts so I can get a better grip on the tail end. The cheap key-ring clamshell style arrow pullers work well for me, my wife has a plier style one that I forget where we got it, works well for her, but makes me nervous.

Default Don't have much trouble with...

my thinner home made construction foam/used newspaper target. But I do keep handy a couple of rubbery jar cap removers. The cost fits the target real good. I'd hate to use an arrow remover that cost as much as the target.

Carbon arrows generate heat when shot into foam targets causing the foam to bond to the arrow. For tough to pull arrows I purchased the Hamskea Arrow Jac. I have used the rubber type arrow gripper, but found the Hamskea Arrow Jac superior.
All the best.

Agree with Mike. I always steal the little hotel soaps just to rub on my arrows. Makes a huge (cheap) difference.

you can also use basic car wax on them , but keep in mind, easier out might also make them go in deer with coating a shaft to slide more?? works both ways NO?

Pam spray works too. Don't use on arrows for hunting (scent)

Yep on the soap. I always have one of those little "seeds" of soap that just won't give up laying in the bow case. IF they get stubborn I'll just give them all a little rub and it's good for I don't know how long. So it's long enough.
