Carbon Express® Pro Staff Shooter Scores a Rare Double Robin Hood. FLUSHING, Mich. A “Robin-Hooded” arrow is an accomplishment for any shooter and might occur once in a lifetime. A double Robin Hood on the other hand is an entirely different matter. A Robin Hood occurs when an arrow stuck in a target is literally pierced by a second arrow. For Carbon Express® Pro staff Shooter Bob Morgan, a practice round at the London Kentucky ASA shoot proved to be a once in a lifetime experience.


Saturday, May 30th 2009 -- While practicing from 35 yards, Bob Morgan knocked an arrow and released. He then knocked another and felt good about the shot, but did not know he had robin-hooded his first arrow. The third arrow was a robin hood as well. Morgan new something unusual had happened as the arrows started to hang down from the target. Jokingly, his fellow shooters talked about shooting at the hanging arrow. It was only when they walked toward the target that they realized what an amazing phenomenon had taken place.

“I was surprised to say the least,” stated Bob Morgan, owner of Bobs Sporting Goods in Biscoe, N.C. “Three arrows and two Robin Hoods - I’ve been shooting for many years competitively, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this happen.”

Bob was shooting the Carbon Express Line Jammer 250's when he accomplished the double Robin Hood. “The Carbon Express Line Jammer is the most accurate arrow I’ve ever shot, and my double Robin Hood is testament to the their quality. In all my years shooting archery, I’ve never found a better more consistent carbon arrow,” stated Morgan.

Carbon Express arrows have the most consistent spines in the industry. They are the only brand that laser sorts their premium target shafts guaranteeing consistent spine tolerance in every arrow. The Line Jammers that Bob was shooting have a straightness tolerance of +/- .0025” max. and a spine selection tolerance of +/-.002”

Carbon Express congratulates Bob on his remarkable double Robin Hood accomplishment.
