    I currently use aluminum but have been looking at the composite arrow. Anyone use these?

      Both

      For the compound I use Carbon Express Terminator Hunter Selects at 12 gpi. They have been awesome to date except for splitting two of them with a Robin Hood that completely runied them.

      For the recurve I use Easton XX78's. Again excellect.

      But carbons are the favorite. They are either straight or broken. Aluminums can be straight, bent or broken........carbon offers one less option than aluminum.

        It is hard to beat the durability of the golt tips! I prefer not to use anything else.

          I've been using aluminum for 20 years and finally convinced myself to using the carbons last year. I opted for the Gold Tips and I must say, they kick butt. They fly soooo nice and hit hard. Carbons are either broken or not. Pretty simple. I really like them. My .02...

            Easton epic

            Been using epics for some time. They are inexpensive and i can fletch them up nicely when needed to. Topped of with a 100 gr wasp is a deadly combo.

              Composite

              Since it wasn't listed I chose "other". I'm shooting the A/C SuperSlims and A/C Kinetics but there are the old stand-by A/C/C's that I used to shoot and now there's the new Axis FMJ aluminum over carbon composite. The A/C shafts are absolutely the strongest, and straightest shaft using carbon technology, although they're also the most expensive.

                Or ready to blow up. That's why I use the A/C shafts. Good thing we can't embed pics or I'd post one that would scare the b'geebers out of you carbon shooters. (hand with a shattered carbon shaft shot halfway through it from a carbon shaft blowing up on the shelf.)

                    Arrows

                    I've used fluted aluminum arrows by Oust Composites for quite a few years now. Seems they are the best of two worlds. Lighter shaft weight in aluminum.

                        I love my woodies. I use them with my long bows & recuves. Recently I have been playing with carbons (heritage) to get heavier arrows & tip combos in the 650 grain range.

                          Pics of the Carbon

                          Hey Rob--
                          You CAN post pics to this forum. I would love to see the pic you mentioned above. I think you just click on the Insert Image icon and set it up as long as the image is on your PC.
                          If its too gruesome it may get edited out though, so you may want to check with the Webmaster first.

                              Arrows

                              Well, looks like most of you guys are into the carbon arrows. Still using aluminum myself. Guess the two resons are re-tuning my bow (really like where it is now) and speed benefits. Is it really fast enough to make it worth it to me. Of course, when I let go of a bent arrow at the trophy of a lifetime, that would certainly be a kick in the pants.
                              So all you guys who moved from tin to carbon - was it worth it?
