[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. [/size:3ntdsmb7][/font][/quote:3ntdsmb7]
Same here, the first aluminum’s I bought where Game Getters, they didn’t last long.
I would take the aluminum.
I went thru 3 dozen carbon arrrows last year.
A lot was my fault , either lost them in the woods or busted them.
Last week I was busting an arrow every other day , but that was my XT s’ fault. Now I am shooting spots.
As far as durability I still got some 2315’s I bought in 91 and I am thinking about getting an arrow straightener.
I just bought some 2419 XX75 for 30 bucks a dozen.
I guess I am in the minority but carbon arrow are not more durable for me and usually too lightweight.
