Default 2512 XX78s?

Anyone still using them? Haven't shot 3D in about 14 years when I used a PSE G-Force and the 2512 XX78s and they worked pretty well. Picked up a used Bowtech Pro 40 and looking to get back into competing for some fun. Now it seems like most people use carbon over the aluminum. Does carbon offer that much of an advantage? Would it be better to go with something like a Fatboy or Lightspeed? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies. After looking around the site and also at different arrows I think i might take the leap from aluminum and try some carbon arrows. Looking at the Easton Lightspeed and Gold Tip Ultralight 22. Looks like I can get less weight with them.

Thanks.
