It is possable there are some manufacturing differances between newer rafts???
Shooting 'between' stacked layers slows the arrow down relatively gently. Shooting into a face of a bundle the arrow has to puncture each layer = very fast decel can fracture or weaken your arrows. At lower poundage and if the bundle is not really compacted it may not make a differance.
Really great to Hear! Have Fun!
Go for it! (This was a surprisingly quick build.)
