Best carp arrow???

9 posts in this topic

Just looking for suggestions on what kind of arrow/tip everyone uses. I bought the muzzy 2 prong one from cabelas and am not very pleased with it. I have had several tear offs now. Has anyone tried the pro arrow from cabelas?

get the grappler tips, i went and bought the muzzys and didnt like them. with the muzzy i was losin 35-40% of my fish and with the grappler i went down to less than 5%. just be careful on where you shoot those tips really stick.

Yeah I am typically shooting in shallow water into reeds where I go. I even get the muzzy stuck in the roots quite a bit. Do you think I will be able to pull out the grapplers in those conditions?

it all depends. but more than likely you won't be able to pull it out. i shoot the grappler tips and love them but they are a pain to get out when you shoot into reeds/cattails. i also shoot a bunch of different arrows. i have a aluminum w/ 2 carbon arrows in it, i like it alot. i have a muzzy carbon arrow which i love. harder then heck to brake, shoots straight and if you brake it muzzy will replace it. i also have the muzzy preditor which is good but i bent it one night, i kinda got it straight again. as for tips i have about 2 dozen differnt tips and i like them all but some i like more than the others. each has it's advantanges and dis advantanges.

i work at cabela's and i have never heard or seen the pro arrow. who makes it??

I was wrong it is called the cajun sting=o=ree tournament arrow not the pro arrow. Anyone know anything about that?

ya i have seen them. i like the arrow cause it's a carbon fiber/fiber glass arrow so it's nice and stiff and durable. but the point i would take off and throw away. all the fish has to do is roll and the point will loosen up and it will get off. and also the arrow has to go in at least 3 inches for the barbs to expand out.

i guess im lucky then, i have shot grapplers straight down in foot in a half of water w/ a 60lb bow and i get them out pretty easy. the one i never done is shoot in the cattails. i did that once with my muzzy and will never do that again.

that's why your lucky then. i have shot in some cat tails in iowa with a grappler and with a muzzy and that took me a easy 15 - 20 min. to get them out.

yea, i got to excited when i saw a carp sittin right in the catts and shot without thinking. it took me more time than that to get it out. since my boat dont like to go into that stuff to easy, we had to get the gaff and the oar and push our way in. after that i dont shot them in that stuff.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
