    Default Arrows

    A question for you fine bow shooters. I have used a couple of the Walmart Carbon Exacta arrows for groundhogs with my Threshold. I shoot a 29 inch arrow and the exactas are rated for 45 to 70 Lbs. I have killed two groundhogs with them from my Threshold with no problems. My question is can they be used with my new Nemesis? Both the Threshold and Nemesis are set at 60 Lbs. The arrows don't have any markings other then 29 inches and 45 to 70 Lbs. Thanks for any help on my issue.

    Their most likely a brand name made for Wal-Mart. Maybe not top of line, but they will shoot. I'v shot a few and they were tough coming out of 3D targets.

    The Carbon Exacta arrows are made by Allen. They are a very heavy arrow but work well. No reason you can't use them for your Nemesis.

    I've had that happen more than once. Nothing like watching a $14 ACC get ruined. Be sure and use broadheads, even old ones. Them thar hogs are tough.

    You bet bfisher, I had one drap a carbon exacta down the hole a few days ago. For a cheap arrow they do ok, not real wild about the veins but for 3 bucks what can you say.
