    I'm thinking of switching to carbon arrows for my bow this year.  In addition to the arrows what else do I need to purchase? 

    I have a wisper bisket rest and I know that it has be be replaced but do I need to replace anything else?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    One thing to think about is the grain of your broadheads. Make sure your new carbon arrows are made for the grain of broadhead you are currently shooting or you will also need to get new broadheads.

    Personally I would take the bow to a pro and let the fit the arrows and tune the bow for the new rest, arrows etc.

    Go to a pro for sure and have them set you up. That kind of speed and energy can easily snap arrows that aren't weighted properly. This should be taken seriously for any configurations; recurve/wooden, compound bow/carbon, long bow, aluminum etc... Nothing like getting a broken arrow driven into a forearm!

    Proshop is the way to go. There was a nasty picture going around the internet of some poor bastard with an arrow buried in a guys hand right up to the fletching. Word on the stree is it was some guy shooting a bow he was thinking about buying at Gander Mountain. The tech gave him the wrong sized arrow and when the guy released the arrow, it wasn't sitting on the rest and went right into his hand. Saw another gruesome picture of a guy that shot a carbon arrow that had developed a belly. The guy thought he would still shoot it at the range. Well, when he shot it the arrow shattered and the guy had over 100 little pieces of carbon removed from his hand at the ER. So if your carbon arrow looks messed up, toss it in the trash!
