    Flex your arrows once a week and you will make it a habit. Scarey thought of having an arrow through the hand.

    That's gonna leave a mark. I have to say, I'm guilty of never flexing my arrows. I check the ends for cracks and the shafts for splinters, but I've never really flexed them before. Might have to start doing that now.

    ya buddy flex them thing as often as you shoot.i found two what i thought to be new arrows in the back of my runner,they did not have a mark on them...well i want to flex them and snap broke right down the arrow and right in half.

    like i said above i flex every arrow befor i shoot.

    I flex it before I use it.

    I just ordered the Shooting Edge Pro TX glove for extra safety.
