Best carp arrow???

Recommended Posts

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 job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
