I recently went on a couple of bow fishing trips and had penetrat
ion issues with the jackhammer bow fishing tip. I used it on the first trip and had a lot of ricochets and bounce backs off of the fish with it. I was shooting big carp and buffalo. Most of the problem shots were when the fish were swimming right at me. I was wading while shooting. I went yesterday and changed tips and had absolutely no problems at all at any angle. Makes me think that all those years of using the jack hammer it was costing me fish and I was blaming it on bad shots. Its hard to notice these things unless you compare the two over a two day trip. One 1 day and the other the next, and not through years of mixed up arrows. I had a friend that said that the tip was junk and not to use it, but I said look how pointy it is. He said it would cost me fish and now my survey says yes. Im going to stick with the original style muzzy tip for carp and gar. The jack hammer style is on the right side of the picture.
