    If everyone is using carbon arrows, I'll never use carbon.

    Just trying to be different or did you have a bad experience with Carbon arrows?

    Ive never used them, but don't understand what is the big draw.

    The thing I like the most about carbons is that you can't bend them. I used to have a great selection of slightly bent aluminum arrows around just from hitting the target wrong or touching another arrow in the group and that never happens now.

    I shoot the easton axis shafts. I used to shoot carbon express but the eastons have blown them out of the water in my mind. And as mentioned earlier about aluminum shafts, my dad still shoots them and has killed some monster bulls with his bow and his 2375 aluminum shafts. They may not be as trendy or advanced, but he is just as effective as anybody out there, and probably more so than many guys who shoot carbon. They definitely still get the job done.

    You know I really don't get that many bent arrows unless I miss the target and hit the brick wall beyond it. Normal target shooting doesn't bend my arrows.

    I shot alum. arrows back when I first started archery hunting. I took my first deer with them. I had a few bend shafts from time to time, but if you take care of them they are just as accurate and durable. My choice for shooting carbons is that when I hunt I'm back in about 7-10 miles sometimes. If I slip and fall on alum. Shafts, and they get bent, my hunt would be over. If the same occurred with carbons I could still hunt. I choose all my gear on how durable it is first and then how light it is. Just my 2 cents though.

    Love my FMJ's !!! 468g / 260fps at 70# / kenetic energy = 70

    I can hunt everything I want to hunt with this set up....and I have yet to bend one in probably 1000 shots.
    The lettering on the shaft gets a bit sticky, the shafts penetrate my target so far they're rubbing the lettering off...I can live with that.
