Very good information!  Thank you for posting it.  I'm new to archery and, although I'm very familiar with firearms, I'd never thought about a damaged arrow before............until now, that is.
Retired after 34 yrs. on Jacksonville (Fl.) Police Dept.  19 yrs. in patrol and last 15 yrs. in C.S.I.
Now I can hunt and go bass fishing anytime I want!  Started deer hunting in 2007 but, had many years as a teen hunting rabbits and squirrels.

You are welcome. Sometimes a video can really show you what you can face. Be safe all! Better to toss a suspect arrow away than try and get one more use out of it.

It is your responsibility to check your equipment and be sure your arrows are always in good condition.

Thanks for looking out for others, Flint!!    Gotta check your equipment thoroughly, and often!!    Have seen what can happen when arrows explode and it ain't purty!!!!
They're ALL trophies...it's just that some are bigger than others!

ARROWS ARE MADE TO FLEX!  Arrows flex everytime we shoot them,  so after every shot you should flex it and make sure you dont here ANY cracking what so ever.  If you do, throw it away!  That is how they get the spine stiffness of arrows is by seeing how much pressure it takes to break one.  And another thing to remember is a stiffer spined arrow is not always right for your setup.

If anyone is interested in seeing a link on what can happen if you shoot ....a) improper sized arrows b) too short of an arrow, or c) damaged arrows send me a PM and I will forward it to you. It's pretty graphic so I didn't think it would be appropriate to post here. I can't stress enough how important it is to THROUGHLY inspect your arrows before each shooting session, and even during.
