Carbons can definitely be tougher than aluminum...especially if you foot them with a 1" of aluminum arrow...which you won't likely need to do...unless your stump shooting or hunting.I've heard that they're tougher than the aluminums. Does anybody have experience or opinions with the three arrows I'm considering?
These arrows are for recreational shooting only, and will not be used for hunting.
Setup: Martin Lynx Recurve, email@example.com" DL, Cavalier Free Flight rest.
Current arrow: Easton Legacy 2016-29" with 21gr insert and 100 gr field point
Spine: .531, Weight: 10.6 gr/in, Straightness: +/-.002", Weight tolerance: +/-1%
These are slightly overspined, but still fly straight
1) Carbon Express Heritage 90 Spine: .53, Weight: 9.4 gr/in, Straightness: +/-.005", Weight tolerance: 2 gr.
2) Gold Tip Traditional XT 3555: Spine: .50, Weight: 8.6 gr/in, Straightness: +/-.003", Weight tolerance: ???
3) Beman MFX Classics 500: Spine: .50, Weight: 9.7 gr/in, Straightness: +/-.003", Weight tolerance: 2 gr.
I personally haven't used any of those arrows but based on what you've shared about your present bow and arrow combo...I would lean more towards the Carbon Express arrows cut a little bit longer.
Do you know how to tune arrows to your bow and tell if they are too weak or too stiff?
