    I am just starting bowhunting this year and I still need arrows for my new bow. What is the best set to use, Carbon Arrows or Aluminum?

    i use carbon arrows, more giving, less weight and smaller but i know people who use aluminum and love them guess you would have to ask a pro

      For you(till you get some time in), I'd suggest aluminum. They are cheaper to replace.
      Good luck and good hunting !

        I used aluminum up until 2 years ago. As Big O said they were cheaper to replace and overall I don't know that their hunting performance is much different. I switched because I was tired of having to throw out arrows during practice. Field tips will crease and deform the shafts of aluminum arrows that are already on the target when they strike even glancing blows at them. In the end my carbons were probably 30% more expensive, but other than re-fletching and new nocks I think I've only destroyed a few shafts since the switch. I was buying 2 dozen aluminums a year. That's just my experience. Which ever you chose, check to see that they sit in your rest ok, the difference in diameters will have some effect there. Good Luck Matt.

          Also, in agreement with Big O, it took a good while before I was regularly grouping close enough for that to be a problem. For my first few years I think the aluminums served me just fine.

            Thank you all for your advice. I have noticed that aluminums do tend to break on me from time to time at the range. Hopefully I'll get good enough to not break arrows then I don't have to worry about it in the woods. Once again, thank you all.

              carbon - much more durable, penetration is much better.
