Carbon arrow life span
« on: April 10, 2021, 10:00:02 AM »
Currently shooting older CE Mayhem 350ís.  I flex check them etc - but wonder if the spine changes with age/hitting hard targets etc. 

Also, getting to the point of needing to get some more arrows - CE has a newer model of the mayhem - but wondering if I should look elsewhere ?  Easton fmj?
Always get paranoid when seeing pics where a carbon arrow has broken on release.

Old enough to know better.
Young enough to go for it.

I've been shooting some of the same CE mayhems for 8 or 9 years now with no issues.

I have a few arrows left over from 2008 that I shoot at home. Theyíre good tips, I always flex check them and inspect them before I shoot. Iím sure over time they weaken, but Iím not sure what the lifespan would be.
Never give up.... you never know whatís around the next corner or over the next ridge......enjoy it while you can!
