Just what is the big difference in arrows? Why should I spend $100.00 for a dozen carbon arrows when I can get a dozen different carbon arrows for $35.00 they kill the deer just as dead and I am strickly a hunter I am not an archer, I do practice a lot but I just do it to be ready for the hunting season.

First, where are you buying carbon arrows for $35? $50 or $60 is the cheapest I've seen.

Second, how safe are they?

Buy that cheap set and screw a broadhead on them and then buy the expensive set and screw a broadhead on them.You will quickly see that the good carbon arrows will be much more consistant.Not by a little but by alot.


I personally can't figure out why someone will spend $600-$700 on a bow and then buy cheap arrows.They are much better off buying the cheap bow and buying the good arrows.

After seeing the pictures with the arrow sticking out of the guy's hand I'd be afraid to buy arrows that a reputable person hasn't recommended to me.

And usually they will not recommend cheap arrows. I'm still dumbfounded by the $35 a dozen. That's the second time I've seen someone post a price like that. The last time the guy couldn't produce the make or model or even where they bought the arrow.

Will they? How 'bout if they hit the dirt under the deer, or a tree branch over it's head?

I didn't know you could hunt MILF's with a bow in the US, I thought you could set up moneytraps or drive around in expensive cars trying to lure them in.....

You can get aarrows for that price and sometimes less at the Kittery Trading Post in Kittery Me. I'm not sure of their E-mail addy of web site addy but I'm sure if you type in Kittery trading post you will get it. They are called Carbon Force Arrows made by PSE. The address on the box says WWW.pse.archery.com

And you guys still haven't told me anything yet for a reason I should spend more money. I used these arrows last year for hunting and did just fine with them.

I'm not kidding I really don't know why I should spend any extra money for a name and truth be known I only paid $29.99 for the dozen. I have had no problems with these arrows I shoot almost every day and my hand have no holes in them yet. So come on there has to be a real valid reason!

I don't see any arrows on Kittery Trading Post for that price. You really did not provide enough info for a good answer. By "cheap" are you referring to price or to quality? What brand and make of arrow did you buy for 29.99?
and I am strickly a hunter I am not an archer
This is a misguided rationalization. As a hunter I want the most accurate arrow I can get (within reason of course).
