Do carbon arrows become more brittle in really cold weather? I seem to have been breaking more in the this cold weather when practicing.

i would imagine they would,actually i had them hold up better after i shot a deer during late season,im thinking because there not on instant contact with the hard ground the snow is slowing them down,,i had a real problem with my carbon expresses this year every arrow that went thru a deer broke,even two misses that broke,,in sept went thru 5 arrows

Aluminum and wood more so then carbons. I shot a tapered wood once out of a 75 lb long bow into frozen ground and it broke on the next ed shot putting it through my hand. Hurt big time.

Everything becomes more brittle in really cold weather, but how are you practicing if you're breaking arrows?:dontknow:

I cant comment on all arrows, but mine are holding up great. I have only used one arrow for 3 deer and countless squirrels and *****. It is still shooting great. No cracks or breaks, and it doesnt make any noise when I flex it.
I shot a squirrel last night around 5pm, into frozen ground and snow and ice, temp was 15. Its fine.

What are you shooting at when you practice?
