Well tried out 5 carbon arrows , CX Firestorms if I remember correctly. Shot for about half an hour with great results, then one exploded on the bow. Derailed my string guide, one part of the arrow in my arm, & two parts God knows where. I don't think I like Carbon arrows. The arrow that blew on my bow was rated 30 - 50 lbs, & my Yamaha is shooting currently at 45 lbs. PS: it was funny when my wife passed out after seeing the fletches of that arrow sticking out of my forearm. Still hurt like hell.
