Reply To: Carbon Fiber tanks Weaknesses???
Carbon fiber arrows are amazingly durable. I have hit backstops that the arrow didn’t penetrate only to have the insert and tip push back into the shaft. Except other than the end splintering I didn’t see any other damage. Aluminum arrows would have been destroyed completely. I don’t think the tank and the arrow can be compared.
One problem I ran into as far as tanks go is I had a Benjamin tank and the coating they put on the outside to make it look pretty splits and I could not get it filled. Even though the tank is a carbon fiber tank just coated with a plastic. The carbon fiber is just fine but the person filling it wasn’t taking the chance which I couldn’t blame him.Benjamin gave me my money back and I had to purchase a carbon fiber tank with no coating.
