  • While using a razor blade to remove the old fletching from my (carbon) arrow, I shaved into the carbon a little bit and took a s

    While using a razor blade to remove the old fletching from my (carbon) arrow, I shaved into the carbon a little bit and took a small little strip of carbon off. Will this arrow potentially blow up if I glue new fletchings on and shoot it? Or will I be alright?

    Minor scratches and scrapes are normal when scraping the glue off an arrow. Anything into the carbon fiber and I would discard the arrow.

      DON'T use it! the carbon is compromised and could brake when you shoot hurting you.

        When in doubt, err on the side of caution when it comes to archery equipment.

          It is hard to tell you what to do without first hand inspection of the arrow. But as others have said it is better to error on the side of caution. I use a fairly dull knife to remove fletching and feathers, it doesn't cut into the arrow if used properly. You now have an expensive vegetable stake.

            Throw it away. If you have never seen a carbon arrow explode and the resulting splintters look it up on youtube and you'll throw away $12 arrows all day long

                Deerhunterrick, All over, that is a midpriced arrow from what I've seen. I shoot Victory and they run around $9 a piece.
