Don't take chances with carbon. If you have any suspicion it's not safe to shoot, then just don't shoot it.

Paying another 5-11$ an arrow is much better then a splintered arrow through your bow hand.

It would be in your best interest to just shoot it.

I have seen some nasty pics of guys with a broke carbon arrow sticking out of their hand. I try to inspect my arrows regularly for any sign of damage. I they look anything less than perfect I pitch em, I don't want any part of an arrow sticking through my hand.

if it is a camo wrapped carbon arrow it is perfectly fine to shoot because all that is peeling is the wrap that is covering the carbon shaft

However....

if you are shooting raw carbon shafts and you see the carbon peeling back it is time to get rid of it

If your carbon is showing any signs of fatigue, get rid of it. Better to toss it than have it come apart on release, and cause injury to you or someone else. The arrow is cheap compared to what it could cost.
