    Default Arrow Lifespan and storage

    Being the cheap guy I bought a couple of dozen more arrows on sale than I need. How do you guys store your carbon arrows. Where I live it's 109 degrees and probably close to that in my garage. Any concerns for arrows going south or should I bring them all inside?

    Mine get stored in a wardrobe with all the rest of my gear, I don't like them being constantly exposed to direct heat without ventilation.

    Good advice.

    You can also make a holder for the arrows. Can be simple as drilling holes in the top of a box/crate/whatever to stand them up seperated. Sonny, I never have laid them flat, too much of a chance that someone will throw things on top of them lol!

    Since car hoods, brake rotors and so many other carbon fiber items are fine in the elements I would not be worried about them stored in the garage.
