    I am a firm believer that if it ain't broke don't fix it. If it works for you "nuff said":amen:

    Dude if they work and you are happy then it tickles the crap out of me. I know how you feel but do not let that type get to ya. Those arrows look just fine to me. :peace:

    I hate people like that. I know a guy from the local club that is the same way. He has tried to tell me twice how to grip my bow.


    I think I made it pretty clear what I thought of the idea. Same thing, I try to be nice but there is a limit. If he says anything about it again I guess I will have to be very blunt.

    thats not a super helical... I shoot a custom helical that the vanes almost touch at the ends. with my 3d arrows and 1.25 vanes. I think thats perfect there. about the same on my hunting arrows.

    But me I would not have bit any thing. That maybe a bad thing about me. If someone talks that way to me. Like a know it all. The fuss is lite and I'm ready to blow.

    Actually what makes them dirty is putting them through an animal... I'd suggest missing everytime and sticking them in soft wood stumps or loose dirt :lol:

    I wish my really good arrows cost the same as the A/C/C's, I'd be so happy. I have those nice little skinny Carbon Express nano's....they shoot great and they are tough as nails too. Unfortunately they aren't cheap but you get what you pay for in them that's for sure. I wish I just had to worry bout them getting dirty...I've lost one at a tournament never to be seen again. That's a quick $22 down the drain on that one.
