Kill'n Stix™ are designed to KILL stuff, from the 10x in competition to your intended game animal. Before using our arrows, it is essential that you KNOW YOUR S#!T™.
Kill’n’Stix™ arrows, if not handled properly can cause serious injury or death! Please read and follow our safety protocol.
KNOW YOUR ARROW INTEGRITY.
Any arrow can become damaged. A damaged arrow could break upon release and injure you or a bystander. Always inspect every arrow before shooting. Cracks, cuts, and dents can break down the integrity of the arrow causing it to break.
NEVER SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW.
Carefully examine the whole shaft for any imperfections. Especially include the nock itself. Everyone loves to shoot groups and the nock being intact and free from any cracks or damage is critical to Arrow Safety.
TEST YOUR ARROWS BEFORE SHOOTING.
Grasp the shaft just above the point and below the nock, then flex the arrow in an arc (bending it away from you and others) with a deflection of 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm), and feel and listen for cracking. Perform this test four to six times, rotating the arrow slightly between each flex until you have gone around the entire arrow. If you hear or feel cracking, the carbon has been damaged and must be discarded.
AGAIN WE REPEAT - NEVER SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW.
Kill’n Stix™ can kill you! It seems like common sense, but never point a loaded bow in the direction of people.
KNOW YOUR SPINE:
SHOOTING AN UNDER-SPINE ARROW IS VERY STUPID. DON'T BE STUPID.
Shooting a weaker spine arrow might get you a bit more speed, but it comes at a great potential risk. Repeating this activity will drastically increase the risk to you (the shooter) as well as anyone near you while shooting. Our spine chart makes it simple to choose your arrows based on your draw weight and draw length. Arrow safety starts with choosing the right arrows.
CUTTING YOUR KILL'N STIX™:
Cut your Kill'n Stix™ using a high speed arrow cut off saw only. Use of any other type of saw may cause damage to the arrow.
KNOW YOUR IDEAL ARROW WEIGHT:
We recommend that you always shoot arrows that weigh 5 grains per pound of draw weight or more.
Example: A bow with 60# draw = a minimum arrow weight of 300 grains (60 x 5). This will insure the right amount of mass weight is present to protect the bow from a possible "Dry Fire" condition. Failure to do so may result in damage to equipment and possible serious injury to you (the shooter), or bystanders.
SERIOUSLY. NEVER SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW!
KNOW YOUR SURROUNDINGS:
Make sure you know what is behind the target you are shooting at. Before shooting, make sure you have a safe, unobstructed shooting lane.
KNOW YOUR GEAR:
Get your bow inspected by a professional prior to shooting. Get your arrow shafts measured by a professional prior to shooting. Adjust your arrow rest to fit the diameter of your shafts prior to shooting. Not doing this can cause serious injury or death.
REGARDING EXPOSURE TO HEAT:
Never expose your Kill'n Stix™ to excessive heat. Heat is used to activate the resin & bonding agents in carbon shafts. Exposure to excessive heat can undo the bonding process and weaken the resin in your arrow. This would certainly result in a damaged arrow.
ONE LAST TIME, NEVER SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW!!
Good luck and be safe out there!
