I got into the habit flexing my arrows on the way back from the target after every shot a few months ago . After seeing all the posts about it on AT . Well even though I still do it I've always kinda just brushed it off as a waste of time . That is untill tonight . I pulled my arrow out of the target and the first flex snap!!!!!!!! Talk about a close call . I will tell you now I will never shot an arrow without flexing it first again !
