I've done that 3 times already, now when shooting at 20 yrds I only use 3 arrows at a time.

Unfortunatly you will!Broken nocks and torn fletching are also very common the better you get.Take a sharpie and make a bunch of dots all over your targets to shoot at.It will save your arrows.Nice shooting by the way.

That is exactly the reason I won't shoot at 20 yds anymore. If I robinhood at 40 yds that is another thing. Too expensive!!

I used to shoot alot of 3D tournaments and "robinhoods" were very common. Especially if you had 5 or more shooter trying to squeeze their arrows into the same "X" rings. Sucked to be the first shooter who puts his arrow in there. Got even worse when I moved up into the Open class shooting with magnified, movable sights, extra long, mutiple stabilizers and very light and fast arrows. Didn't matter if you were shooting 20yds or 60yds-ruined arrows. Some guys didn't want to shoot with me anymore. Remember those days Jawbreaker?

That's what I said when I was using my Nugent Gold Tips to sight in my 50 yard pin than the following weekend we were shooting at a party and I split 2 more 1 from 20 and 1 from 35. I think it is more common than most think because I know it was not my expertise by any means. 10.00 x 1 ouch 10.00 x 3 makes you feel as if you have been violated.
