Default Wood arrows with a compound?

Does anyone ever shoot wood arrows with their compounds? I thought about using them with Flu-flu fletching to shoot arieal shots.

NEVER!!!!! The sudden burst of energy as the cam rolls over is more than most wood shafts can handle. The consequences look something like this:

Back in the 80's I did. Good shafts are a must. Lots of folks sell spines up to 120lbs (trad) which is about a 2315 aluminum.

wouldn't advise anyone to use wooden arrows with today's compounds. too much speed, power, kinetic energy, whatever you want to call it for a wooden arrow.

hmmm just a thought but i think he could use wood arrows provided he used a reasonable compound. i'm sure it would work if he used a 45-55 lb draw weight and not some hyper cammed bow andproperly spined arrows.
nowadays everyone tends to think of the super bows first. i would use wood arrows with my 52.5 lb draw whitetail hunter and im sure the arrow would not splinter.
i dont think i would use them with the mathews s2 tho.
