Assuming that on average all the lines you take at the sharpbook are balanced, you lose 2.5-4% on every bet you place there by arbing, depending on juice. That is 1.25-2% of the total money invested. So if your average arb is lower than this, the answer is yes.

Total money I lost at sharp books last year is slightly higher then my yearly profit.
The situation is same for  every arber I talked to.

Assuming that on average all the lines you take at the sharpbook are balanced, you lose 2.5-4% on every bet you place there by arbing, depending on juice. That is 1.25-2% of the total money invested. So if your average arb is lower than this, the answer is yes.

I disagree. My average arb is higher then this number but still..

And don't forget that arbs with higher % are more likely to win at softbooks.
Small arbs (arbs under %1) and micro arbs (arbs under %0.5) don't win very often in softbooks.

And what do you think is the reason for this? Sharp lines moving further more often than not? Sharpbooks offering lower odds on arb opportunities to make more profit?

Easy answer. The bigger line movement means a higher %. Lines/odds change for a reason.

At 3% juice the line where Total Profit = Sharpbook Loss is at 1.55% arbs, Lower arb means Profit < Loss. You said your average arb is higher and still Profit < Loss.
Either your data is incorrect/sample size not high enough , or the sharp lines are not balanced, which goes back to my previous questions.

Since money flows from softbooks to sharpbooks, every arber's softbook balance will up positive and sharp book balance will be negative.

You mean your sharpbook balance (just arbs) is positive? For how long? Speak in numbers.

i disagree that 0,5% arbs have lower yield..

My yield was with 2% arb on soft side 10%.. And now with 0,5% - 5%  (more than 5% dont valuebet) are same 10%
