    Carbon all the way one dozen will outlast the 3 dozen aluminum plus I think after you start with the aluminum you will end up buying the carbon anyway ..

    Golt tip Hunter XT $69.99

    Game Getters $53.99

    … not quite 3 to 1

    I would spend the $16 more and the arrow will out live the aluminums 3 to 1 ! ! ! :thumbup

    [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 [/size:3ntdsmb7][/font][/quote:3ntdsmb7]

    :thumbup Same here, the first aluminum’s I bought where Game Getters, they didn’t last long. :^O

    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.

    You buy one dozen gt pros and they will last you as long if not longer than the 3 dozen alum.
