    Default Durable Arrow Suggestions

    So in the past month I've learned that I am exceptional at breaking arrows. I've been using Beman Hunter Jrs, and I've broken three of six. So I need some stronger arrows....any suggestions?

    How are you breaking them? Most of the time I hear of that it because they were hit with another arrow or the arrow went some place unintended In either case don't think changing brands is going to help you much.

    Mostly it's from hitting rocks n stuff. I live in a desert, so it happens now and again. Thanks though.

    are you missing your target, or are you doing what's called stump shooting where you walk around and shoot at targets of opportunity like dirt banks and cans? if you're shooting at a fixed target like a bag move closer until you dont miss and work your way back. 10 or 15 feet isnt too close if thats what it takes. if you're stump shooting try some rubber blunts but remember that while that type of shooting is fun you still are going to lose or break a certain amount of arrows. like the man said, rocks win every time, no matter what arrow you're using.

    Definitely agree with the vote for Gold Tips. I started shooting them when the first version came out and still choose them today as my go-to arrows.
    Last season I just clipped a tree and snapped the broadhead in half, bent the insert, and broke the nock. Still shooting that undamaged shaft.
