Wow Z glad you are OK!

No arrow should explode!  Even if you are at IBO = 5 grains of arrow weight per lb of bow draw weight.  Since you spend so much on a bow donít skimp on an arrow.  Plus keep in mind you are going to shoot your arrows thousands of times.   Thatís why I buy the best arrow I can.  I buy PSE Carbon Force Pro arrows they have a tolerance of .001.  These shafts are cross weaved and are extremely strong.

i agree with roosclan. I'd like to know your draw weight, lenght, arrow length, tip weight and the spine of the arrow you were shooting. I use them for 3D and have not had a problem yet. Hope it stays that way! Glad you are ok.

Roosclan, Mhouck06,
My draw weight is 66lbs. (I had just bumped it up from 62 about two weeks prior)
My draw length and arrow length are both 29 inches
My insert/field point weight is 121 grains (100 field point) (21 for insert)
The spine of the arrow I was shooting is 0.400  (400's)
My knocks are different than most or at least they were (g-nock with uni-bushing) they are the same weight as standard lightspeeds roughly 13 grains

These arrows are not the 3D Lightspeeds, they are the hunting lightspeeds,  and it could have very well been a damaged arrow that I didn't pay attention to but if it was or wasn't it got my attention real quick, hence, why I am swapping
Never had it happen before either
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

When was at Gander Mountain Sunday getting Troy Landry's autograph I happened to look on the back of a carbon express maxima box and it showed on a graph ,what grain of arrow you should be using. It went by draw length and draw weight (poundage) and like everyone has said it don't hurt to go bigger. Saftey first!!

Very helpful info, but I still need to know what bow you were shooting when it happened.

Using the OT2 software and guessing that you have a moderate-speed bow such as a Mathews EZ7 (IBO of 315fps), you are waaay underspined with those arrows.
