Did wal-mart let you in on this little secret? Hard to believe this is true with liability laws in our lawyer driven society being what they are. Wal-Mart doesn't make arrows, so it is hard to believe ANY arrow maker would allow their "rejects" to be sold by anyone, period. The better price surely comes from Wal- Mart's buying power, not a manufacturers willingness to sell rejects and risk their reputation and million dollar judgements.

i completely agree with you there as for buying my arrows i get them from my local shop where he does everything like cutting them putting feathers and whatnot on them and it does cost a lil more but most of us hunt as a recreation and not the sole source of food so if you cant afford to shoot dont but i will never buy cheap arrows from walmart

i love how people think to do or enjoy or to be successful you have to have the best of everything. camo jackets and pants $100-150+ each. boots for $150+ Are you kidding me? what im saying is that it does NOT matter what you spend, cause when it comes down to it, we are all doing what we love.

but if the arrows are made by the same company, probably coming off the same line and getting a differnt logo on it, who's to say they are "cheap" yes they cost less, but it doesnt mean they are cheap/worthless

I think what he is saying is the quality is lesser, they are the price for a reason. It is like you said...and it is true, I hunted cheap walls camo for years, it is good stuff, warm, noisy, and loose fitting. I didn't hunt rainy days, and I got cold in a treestand. I now have better. I never had the money then for anything better, and no range finder and I missed deer. You have to get what you can afford. Shoot something solid with the cheap arrow, I tried one from walmart, and it broke when it hit out of my 82nd. Granted I was testing it on a post, but my Maximas won't break, niether would my Gold Tip Pro Hunters, sure I might pull the insert out, but the arrow isn't broken. If you don't do a lot of shooting, have a lower powered bow, and you can get away with it and it floats your boat, buy them. I won't, more for you.

This is BullCrap ! If you don't like walMart fine but ......... you are saying that Carbon Express sells rejects through WalMart ! So are the Remington rifles , shotguns junk also ? Are their tools and appliances seconds ? get real !!!
I have shot the Carbon Express Terminators for target practice and they shoot great . I hunt with a heavier arrow .

well according to some people if walmart has them then remington must have rejected them. i also shoot a mossberg atr 100 .30-06 that came from walmart. and guess what it shoots every time, perfectly. its just stupid that people think their high dollar gear is what makes or breaks a successful hunt, when in all honesty it dont mean crap.
