I currently represent a young man who was shooting a Carbon Express Terminator Lite carbon arrow. Upon release, the arrow fractured and part of the arrow went straight in his hand. While the picture below isn't my client, it is someone else who allegedly was injured by one of Eastman's Carbon Express arrows.
Eastman insists that it doesn't have a problem with its arrows. But you wouldn't believe how many people have contacted me about this same mechanism of failure. Even Eastman admits that the arrow can fail BUT it blames the failure on the user's "failure to properly inspect the arrow." Hey guys, if you know that your arrow can cause serious injury, maybe you need to spend the money to make it safe. These are very serious injuries that you're causing.
Rant over. Archers: Avoid these arrows like the plague unless you want to risk permanently injuring your hand.
