Well after having my bow redone and now resighting the bow in I did this. Just so you know these are Goldtip 7595's in camo. The shot was from 20 yards while trying to center my sight. I knew what had happened when I heard it hit. The better half says I am just trying to get new arrows. I like the arrows that I have. I now have 2 less but now I will not be shooting at the same dot more tham once.

Congratulations in all the thousands of arrows I shot when I competed I only ever actually tubed one. I was using x7 aluminum arrows which were milled to a point at the rear and the nock was over that. I split many a nock but only once did I actually tube one.

:clap: That's sweet, Frank. I've never tubed one either, but I've sure wrecked my fair share of em by creasing them and knocking the fletchings off of em and the knocks too. I found that the multi targets are the way to go many moons ago. :lol:

I'd say the change in your bow has made a significant difference, awesome shooting. :clap: You gonna get it mounted?? :boone:

Great shot!!! You gotta mount that one. I've cracked knocks and carbon shafts but never tubed one yet.

That is why I took pics. Then it took two of us to pull them apart. I am not wasting a perfectly good arrow. My better half thinks I did it to get new arrows anyway. Not that I think I could do it ever again.
