I think you mean "flu-flu" arrows. Those are the ones with the spiral fletching that slow the arrow speed down after about 30 yards or so. I use them for shooting at aerial targets. Good fun!

I'll stump shoot while I'm scouting, shooting at small rocks, logs etc.. with old aluminum arrows I have. I got about 3 dozen left, and will also use judo points as well.  If they break or get lost oh well!
I also have powerlines running through my property and take some loooong shots on the big steel poles to see were and if we can hit them.
Lots of fun!

I always kept a old arrow w/a broadhead on it for the squirrels, but this sounds like a much better idea. Like the idea of taking the bow for a walk.  I asked my archery supplier if I could use my carbon arrows & he said he always looks forward to selling me more arrows LOL. So much for a straight answer.

According to the product reviews on thses at 3-Rivers Archery........

....if you are shooting carbon arrows and you hit something SOLID, it may ruin the arrow. But as long as you are shooting at things that have some give, or you don't hit anything solid square dead on, then you should be OK.
 
I shoot aluminum arrows, and I don't have this problem. If I shot arrows that wouldn't let me rove with Judos, then I'd CHANGE to some that would permit it, because it's the large majority of the type of shooting I do now.

Woods I am glad you made this post! As I was reading it I was suddenly brought back to my childhood running around my parents yard and property with an old red recurve bow and a hand full of miss match arrows shooting at misc things. I have not done that for a long long time and right now I am scratching my head wondering to myself, "why not?"

I guess I started thinking that targets are the only way the big boys practice with their bows so I better grow up and do the same. I am going to have to get a half dozen arrows set up and start taking my bow with on my nature walks. I am already getting excited about quietly making that perfect stalk through the woods to end up 15yds from my stump of choice and firing off a perfect shot just as the stump turns and looks the other way! You never want to shoot at one when it is looking at you because it could jump your string! [;)]
