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.

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
