I can't help it. everytime i turn around i see a good deal on some goldtips on here and I buy a dozen or 2. I bet I've bought 5 or 6 dozen in the past year and a half, and i still dont feel like i have enough. I have a dozen display arrows, a couple dozen target arrows, a dozen or so hunting arrows, and more broken and lost ones than I can count.... anyone else have this problem???

I am a freak when it comes to trying out new gear, especially arrows and broadheads.

In the last year I have shot Axis, ACC super slims, FMJ's, Carbon Tech Whitetails, and now once I get to the shop I will be shooting CT Rhino XP's.

Gets expensive, or should I say is very expensive. Worst part is it took three dozen axis, one dozen super slims, and a dozen FMJ's to figure out I hate the HIT inserts, oh well, just threw away a new bow with that, but live and learn.

Not yet, but since I switched to carbons I only have a dozen Goldtips. I called the shop today and ordered 2 dozen Carbon Express Terminator Selects.

Could care less about arrows, all I need is a dozen in my possession at any given time. Broadheads on the other hand, I buy and test broadheads like people use toilet paper :D

I think there is a better way to word your sentiments. Or else you had better have plastic covers on all your upholstered furniture...:wink:

I break or loose 1 & 1/2 to 2 dozen a year and some dillhole Im shooting with breaks another 1/2 to a dozen more.At that rate,if your building an inventory , your just not shooting enough.Thats why I buy the standard grade GT's, It doesnt hurt as much when I screw up or shoot an accidently on purpose robin hood.

Yes and No. I dont have a problem with buying alot of arrows but I do buy alot of sights and rests for some reason. And I guess alot of releases too. Oh well.

I'm totally opposite! I almost never buy arrows. I live out of my "arrow bucket" at the house. If i got 3 of one kind, then i'm good to go. I shot the last few 3D tourneys this past summer with 2 arrows!:mg: When people asked why i was carrying only 2 arrows, i responded with "well, i might need a spare"....:wink:

You and Brent both, except Brent's spare is missing one fletch and is bent too! Can't help but laugh at him! It is hard leading or following that group! :wink:

well seeing as there are 4 in my family that shoot ( me, the wife and two kiddies) and we all shoot several different disciplines I end up with different arrows for 3D and indoor for the kids, different arrows for 3d, indoors and hunting for the wife and I, plus arrows for our recurves to play with.....all in all probably 13-15 dozen on hand at any given time in my house.

yes. I have arrows all over my shop. I try different brands cut at different lengths and change tips all the time. I can't explain it, I guess I just like to tinker.
