Default Arrows ????????

PLEASE can someone offer advice. Looking for suitable aluminium arrows for a 55lb 60" recurve. I have looked at the charts and am totally confused. I will be practising on indoor targets but then want to move outdoor onto 3D field targets.

Default Carbons?

How do the two compare? Are carbon much more expensive? Is it better to spend more for outdoor as a starter? I would expect to lose some.

That is a good deal on ultralight arrows, for indoor shooting though I would recommend something bigger. I would prefer carbon to aluminum as well so I cannot help you with aluminum but for indoor shooting, I would recommend some Easton Fatboys, Gold Tip Series 22, Gold Tip Triple X's, Gold Tip 30X's.
With the gold tips you can not buy the pro series of shafts and get a good price on some good arrows. Depending on your draw length you would cut most if any wobble out of your arrows and end up with some extremely straight shafts at a good price.

Thumbs up Carbon vs. Aluminum

To keep it simple, Carbons are either straight or they are broke, you can have many other varibles with aluminum shafts!
