    Default Wal-Mart $4. Arrows!

    Hey Guys, I like to test things cheap or expensive! I have some expensive arrows, medium priced, and just bought some cheap $4. arrows. In testing them out the do weight a bit. But they fly great. Broadhead testing they hit well all the way out to 40yds. I guess anyway you look at it. Its a dead deer.

    i bought some of them last year. the ones w green/white blazers. i thought the flew pretty good. the fletching comes of too easy though. looking forward to the test results.

    i also bought some Carbon Express 2216 aluminum arrows for $2/ea. they fly good but bend way to easy. well,compared to the 2315's and 2117's i used to shoot

    The carbon exacta arrows we bought are made by Allen. They are inexpensive but work well. Cut in an arrow saw the cut well. They are a stiffer arrow so you might have to use 125grain bh. But as far as distance shooting so far they are fine.

    Hey if we loose one who cares they are cheap enough.

    I could never find any markings on the Walmart cheap arrows, no length,spine etc so I didn't buy any.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
