    I would get the carbons, they are much more durable than aluminums, I have shot 2 deer with an arrow and I am still shooting it [=}=]

    Carbons for hunting. Aluminum for target. Carbon=more durable. Aluminum=more consistent and more accurate.

    [font=comic sans ms]I started archery shooting aluminum arrows. After changing to carbon I wouldn’t waste another dime on aluminum. Why?? Aluminum bend too easy and are not as forgiving as carbon. I still have a couple carbon arrows that I bought 6 years ago and I have zero shootable aluminum at all to shoot. The carbon seem to hold up allot better than the aluminum, sure carbon still break but a good carbon arrow is way more durable. :thumbup [/color:1fvpbpc1][/size:1fvpbpc1][/font]

    carbons are way more durable. I have never like aluminums since i saw a video in slow motion of an aluminum arrow in flight that thing was wobbling like crazy as opposed to the carbon.

    [font=comic sans ms]I saw that too. And It seems that carbon stabalize faster than aluminum too. :thumbup [/color:2yzi5fh0][/size:2yzi5fh0][/font]
