I tried alum. and carbon. I felt the carbons were better. If your not sure about arrow weight or stiffness, contact the maker.

A friend of mine was shooting aluminum bolts out of his 150# Horton and having all kinds of problems with consistancy. I gave him some Easton carbon bolts and had him try them while we were sighting our x-bows. He became much more accurate and shot flatter for a longer distance than he did with the aluminum bolts. He now shoots carbon.

My buddy had the opposite results. He had better accuracy with aluminum, in lieu of carbon. It reduced his group by half.

Shoot shoot shoot, and then shoot some more to work out the bugs.
