I bought a dozen xx75 shafts a while back and started shooting aluminum again. Might just stick with aluminum idk. Are there many others that have switched back?
I've been making a comeback to archery after years away. Injury & life. Started shooting my old Golden Eagle with the aluminum arrows I got with it 20 years ago. I've since upgraded that bow and got another new bow. But I think I'll keep shooting aluminum with the Golden Eagle.I bought a dozen xx75 shafts a while back and started shooting aluminum again.

I just have to scratch my head at some people's luck when I read things like this.I was surprised when I started shopping that XX75 game getters were the same as plain XX75 only a couple .001” less straight. I seem to remember years ago the game getter was a cheaper version made out of a little softer aluminum that bent easier and the XX75 was the premium model that was tough as nails. Apparently nowadays they have given the game getter name to the same aluminum tubing. It’s possible my memory has failed me, but that’s what I seem to remember from my high school days.
I switched back after buying half a dozen gold tip carbons in January and after a few hundred shots two of them got splits in them. I could flex them and see the fibers coming out. What shocked me was I wasn’t even shooting groups! I was shooting at five or six different places on the target so as not to damage my shaft, and somehow that still happened. I went to Lancaster archery and ordered a dozen aluminum shafts for about the same price as those six carbon shafts
