After shooting all 3, aluminum are too easily bent for me, carbon are dead-consistent and extremely durable, but after recently getting into wood shafts, there is something weird when I shoot carbons, I am sure it’s all mental but that is a big part of shooting a bow so has to be taken into consideration as far as I am concerned. For me, it has to do with who deep I’ve gotten into wood arrow construction, I am not producing my own shafts but I am spining, straightening, cutting, tapering, crest-wrapping, nocking and fletching and producing quiet shooting consistent arrows. IMO carbons just don’t have that magic. The one downside to the woods has been durability, 4 deer killed, 4 arrows broken, retired to the “successful arrows” section on the bookshelf.
