Safety


Disclaimer - Arrow Safety 

Carbon arrows can become damaged with transport, poor handling or through usage. A damaged arrow could break upon release and injure yourself or a bystander. Follow theses tips to ensue you have a safe and enjoyable experience when using our products.

  • Before each shot (including the first shot of a new arrow) carefully inspect each arrow shaft including the nock.

  • Visually inspect for nicks, cracks, splits, dents, or other marks that could indicate the shaft has been damage.

  • Bend and flex the shafts to check for non-visible/internal damage (read below).

    1. Grasp the shaft just above the point and below the nock.

    2. Flex the arrow in an arc (bending it away from you and others) with a deflection of 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm), feel and listen for cracking.

    3. Perform this test four to six times, rotating the arrow slightly between each flex until you have gone around the entire arrow.

    4. If you hear or feel cracking, the carbon has been damaged.

     

    • DISCARD DAMAGED ARROWS. WARNING! NEVER SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW.

     

    Check Nock for weakness by placing your thumb and index finger on each side of the points and squeezing together. Also visually check the nock for cracks or damages.
