Does anyone have any experience with the really inexpensive arrows ( <$30/doz.) found on sites like Amazon or eBay?

I'd like to have some arrows for hog eradication to carry while deer hunting and don't want to pony up $5-6 each for something that's likely to get lost/broken.

You can purchase some fantastic arrows in that price range. BloodSport Hunters $30 range(box of 6). Also, check Walmart in your area. I read BloodSport Witness (box of 6) were on sale for $25.

I'm also curious about this.

I got those Reegox arrows 20" in the orange color a couple weeks ago to use for practice. The shafts so far have held up, whereas the aluminum shafts I started with bent all to pieces in a couple shots. The practice tips smush fairly easily if they hit something too hard. The vanes get chewed up pretty easy too if there is any kind of a pass through. I also haven't tried the Reegox yet with a broadhead, on a live animal, or at a distance longer than 20 yards. I can't judge how accurate they are, or any of the other parameters as I don't have the skill level to do that.

Since they're available through Prime, you could always return them with free shipping and no questions asked if you don't like them.

Those real cheap arrows is just a way to throw away your money. I understand you just want some short range arrows but without heavy inserts there just isn't a way to know where the broadhead is gonna hit. And with cheaper arrows all you will get is aluminum inserts that weigh hardly anything. Those might get you by with a vert bow but not with a a crossbow. JMO...….

Thanks all. I think I'm going to try some anyway and I'll report back when I have a chance to wring them out a little. I know they're cheap, and not top quality, but they're intended to be MOL disposable.

If you choose to shoot arrows with compromised components, the results may be very similar to a dry fired crossbow. And will void any warranty. A friendly reminder...

Just picked up a box of 6 BloodSport Witness for $17 at Walmart on clearance.

I went last night and found them for the same price...6 days until pay day, so I hope they're still there on Friday. If I get one pack, I'll save those for critturs and use the cheapy Reegox for practice mostly. My bow is slow enough where I don't think I'm in any danger of a mixed carbon arrow splintering.
