Anyone used carbon fiber bolts?

Has anyone ordered Carbon Fiber Rod from Rock West Composite, had it cut into 6" pieces and used them for carbon fiber bolts? Hows the longevity and strength? The total weight of 16 bolts is .5 LB. I seen this recently from a 2019 video by nutterbusters on youtube. No follow up video on longevity.

I bought a set for a lease I have in OHIO.
I drilled out two trees, so I was up 20+ feet. Problem was when it came time to hunt them I couldnt find the trees...lol
I did feel very safe. My linesman was always above one step. If a step snapped I could only fall so far.
I am 6'2" 240lbs.

I am going to attempt it again this coming season and mark the trees much better.
