  1. Weird arrow damage

    General Archery Discussion
    So this is my second arrow that breaks in this weird way. The is a crack horizontally at the bottom of the arrow, about one and a half inches.

    I'm currently using a Truglo Carbon XS sight and was looking at it today and noticed it looks askew. When looking at from a birdseye view the housing is facing forward more so on the left side of the sight. Nothing I've tried seems to straighten it. Not sure if I bumped into anything but from...

    I shoot a takedown recurve off the shelf, and the bottom fletching becomes tattered after a few weeks. Is there any way I can reduce the damage without getting a rest?
