    My old bow is set up with aluminum, but my Bengal is carbonated.

    Shot aluminum for years, then switched to carbon about 6 years ago. Just a far more durable arrow in my opinion. The arrows I'm shooting now are a micro-diameter. Not available in aluminum that I've ever found.

    I voted carbon because that's what I shoot most of the time, but there is another option. How about "BOTH", as in ACC's which I still fall back to once in a while.

    It's just so darn hard to beat carbons. I bought a dozen CX 300s 10 years ago and still have two left. Bought a bunch of CX 300s on sale when the new CX Maximas took over (I don't care for them - CX just made them heavier, not better). I've used CXLs for several years now and can't fault them. The CXL 150s are pretty fragile though. I've tried some 2512 Kobalts and think they're pretty dang good and the price is dang good. Might use them for indoors (I understand they are being fazed out). I used XX78 2312 Super Lights for a while they flew great, Might give them another try. And I've used XX78 2413s that flew great and hit hard for 500 grs.

    I'm with Barry, there should be "both" option. I use carbon arrows with my MOAB and alluminium ones for all my other bows. I've tried carbon arrows with my trad bows and although they are marked for heavy bows they are so noisy and add so vibration to the bow (also don't work at all with my horsebow) that i gave up and will stick to the good old Al ones. Not to mention that the Al arrows that i use are 3 times cheaper then the carbon arrows
