OK, shot my second 3d tournament today, and it was super cold out, but still crazy enjoyable. Here is my issue, Myself and my oldest son are currently shooting easton x7 2212, and am getting tired of slight tweaks and bends in my arrows. Between the 2 of us we Broke 1, bent another 1 and tweaked a 3rd one where nocks don't hold tight.
We shoot indoor 5 spot as well but think that 3d is gonna be my real fire... I want to shoot 1 bow and 1 type of arrow for both types of shooting. I have about made my mind up to go with carbon arrows, but have read an awful lot of post's on here about having to cull arrows, and not having near the straightness in arrows.
We just started shooting archery 3 months ago, I am currently shooting low 290's in 300 league. I recently got a much better bow (Alpine pro comp) and it has helped tremendously with my consistency. With shooting 3d my yardage estimation is not the best just yet, so I have a few rogue arrows.
I know carbon is a little tougher and will hold up somewhat longer to some missed shots and in target arrow collisions, but how great is the trade off in accuracy and straightness in all reality.
