    Bowfishing,,carbonfiber or fiberglass arrow ?

    Just around the corner for me,, whats your choice of arrow ? Why ?

    Fiberglass. Mostly because of price but also safety. We have all seen a carbon arrow explode. You will hit so many rocks and stuff bowfishing I would be scared to use one

    yeah ive kinda thought the same things but the walls on the carbon bowfishing arrows are extremely thick compared to a normal carbon arrow, but i still dont see the advantage

    Like the Cajun Archery Yellow Jackets; combo of carbon and glass. I'd use regular glass if they didn't make them for the reasons above.

    The main reason I shoot them is they have a stiffer spine. I tend to shoot a heavier poundage bow (50 lbs) for bowfishing. I don't have a boat and the areas I bowfish typically make for longer shots because I can't wade there. Also, though it is rare, I've broken a glass arrow shooting in rocky areas before. These seem tougher, straighter and fly better for me.

    Biggest benefit of the Cajun Yellow Jacket is straightness. Plain fiberglass varies from pretzel like to pretty crooked. Sort thru them and plain fiberglass definitely can get the job done but I notice a definite difference in arrow flight consistency with the YJ's.

    I like our Carbon Classics because they are perfectly straight, recover quicker coming off the bow and I get the best flight of anything I have tried with those shafts. Since I concentrate on shooting big fish and often in deeper water I need the arrow flying as straight and true as possible when it hits the water, not to mention they are solid shafts, very durable and hold up well. They just shoot better for me and increase my hit percentages and I like the tunable and replaceable nock system as well.
    Carbon bowfishing arrows are normally within 100grs of the figerglass shaft, not much difference in weight.
