I shot a Martin Maverick for years, very good bows. Used it for league and hunting. So how does that paper taste and does it ever get tender? Put lots of game in the freezer with that bow and that's entirely spiritual.

aluminum is the way to go in the begining. cheap to practice with very cheap. destroy a few or lose em no biggee. once your smacking the bull repeatedly is when to start looking at higher perform arrows if you must. carbon fiber arrows on some really powerful bows starting tugging on the pants of lower end handgun rounds in power.

At the shop we don't sell many aluminum arrows anymore. You can get a dozen carbon arrows with tighter tolerances than aluminum arrows for about the same price as Easton XX 75s aluminum arrows. The nice thing about carbon fiber arrows is they don't need to be re straighten.

A more important factor when it come to arrows is matching the shaft's spline with you draw weight and draw length. Too light an arrows is akin to dry firing the bow.

Go carbon or stay home. Joe
