    I forgot about that one Nicolaa. The case I remembered was for Master Thevenin. His arrows were made for him as a gift. They were all the same, Port Orford

      I forgot about that one Nicolaa. The case I remembered was for Master
      Thevenin. His arrows were made for him as a gift. They were all the same,
      Port Orford cedar 5/16th spined at 35#, shot from a 25 # recurve bow and it
      was one arrow right after the other from the same bow that he shot.

      The case Nicolaa brought up had about a 1/3 rd of the arrows so close to
      Parallel and they to began to blow up with plastic nocks.

      I was going to mention this, but Dafydd beat me to it. Guy brought in a
      dozen commercially-purchased arrows, and after a couple blew we took a
      look at the lot. Someone had obviously not paid any attention to grain
      at all because the nocks were set at all manner of angles. It was kind
      of scary that this guy had actually purchased these arrows (obviously
      not from a specialist store.)
