I don't think that is quite what I said.

Back when archery was "my thing", I got tired of retrieving the three arrows I owned after every three shots.

I went and bought seven more (expensive) arrows, and proceeded to shoot all ten at the target.

When the tenth arrow hit, the target's balance was upset by the weight of the arrows and it toppled, crushing all ten.

We live & learn.

Totally off topic I guess I prefer tubeless tyres for roadside punctures which up till now for me has been alloy wheels but I prefer conventionally spoked wheels when riding in windy weather  , cross winds etc. I guess they have less  surface area  .
