How long do Arrows last?
Most hunting arrows can last 20, 30 or even 40 years or more! The lifespan of an arrow is based on the hunters ability to care for it.

Why are my arrows not shooting straight?
If your arrows are not spined correctly for your draw weight, length and arrow weight, it can cause erratic arrow flight. If you’re not shooting a perfect bullet hole through paper at a distance you are comfortable with (assuming your form is on-point), that tells you that the arrow is not flying straight.
Why are my arrows wobbling?
The amount an arrow will wobble is determined by the spine of the arrow. When the strength of the bow (its poundage) is correctly matched to the arrows’ spine then the wobble of the arrow bends it around the bow as it is shot. The arrow then proceeds to fly straight towards the target.
Why are my arrows fishtailing?
The porpoising, in our experience, has always been due to an incorrect nocking point position (typically too low), this leads to the arrow leaving the string “nock low” and the nock or, more likely, the vanes of the arrow clipping the rest or the arrow shelf on its way out, giving you large up and down oscillations.
How do you fix fishtail arrows?
You should try to adjust cam lean on the bow until you’re able to shoot a bullet hole through paper. Next you will fine tune your bow by doing a walk back or French tune to micro adjust. After you have the rest set for center shot you shouldn’t have to move it left or right more then an 1/8th of an inch.
