Maybe its in my head. But, does anyone notice a difference from arrows that have been shot and arrows that are brand new? It's been common practice to save a few brand new arrows with broadheads set up and ready to hunt with. However, I decided to shoot them the other day to just compare them to my practice arrows and the brand new arrows were'nt grouping as consistent as the arrows I normally practice with.:confused:
All the arrows are exactly the same.

I have also wondered if new nocks could cause grouping issues. I like to shoot arrows for weeks before competing with them.

I don't have facts on this issue. However, I do feel an arrow travels better when it has been shot. I'm thinking the kinetic energy that is absorbed through the arrow in some way spines the arrow according to what that bow is pushing through it.
With that said, I'm sure nocks also play a role.
