Found this on another forum, thought I would post it here. Gives me another reason to stubbornly cling to my Easton XX78 aluminum shafts !

Wow...!

I love carbon and think they are safe if you carefully check the shafts between firing. I usually run my fingers down them every time I pull one from the target. Yea I know I risk the chance of a nasty splinter but its worth it IMO.

After shooting carbon for alot of years I finally found a cracked arrow this year. It seems I very nearly robin hooded one of my arrows and it created a split down the side past the vanes. The knock and arrow otherwise looked normal. I was able to feel the split and discard the arrow.

I've seen pictures of wooden arrows that shattered the same way embedded in arms.

And I just bought my first carbon arrows this year when I buggered up a few of my aluminum arrows. I was just starting to like them. I will look at them a little harder now for defects.
That just hurts looking at it...wow! Have to have the story behind that!

Sorry guys, don't know any details other than what is evident from picture. Looks like he is a lefty though, being the shaft is in his right hand. Here is link where I found pic: www.thefiringline.com/...p?t=320534
