    I'm using them for my whitetail setup this year after some impressive results on a bear last year..........

    I'm using Litespeeds right now, but as soon as they are gone, I'm going back.

    The aluminums are more durable for me. Once these carbons slap together in the target they splinter. Instant tomato stake. With my old 2213's, even the dented ones flew straight.

    I considered it but didn't end up switching.

    i can't switch. I have been using carbon impact 6500 for the past 7 years. Considering the speed and penetration with my carbons, they fly too well. one thing the aluminum arrows have is with the extra weight, the bow is quieter.
