I have carbons for my wheel bow, but not for the recurve. But I have to say, I have forever been a fan of aluminum arrows, for many reasons. I can say I have never had one break on me while shooting. Maybe it’s like someone posted, they bend way before they break, and you see it and do not shoot. I know they do not seem to be as durable as carbons, but if they go that easy when nicked….well I dunno.
That is the same issue the old Bear fiberglass arrows used to have. Old problem, new material.
