    Ok I have been shooting wood and aluminum for a long time. After all this talk about carbon I want to try some again. (I have tried them in the past and they have alway been too stiff, too light, and too inconsistent). I currently shoot xx78 2016 cut to 28.5 with a 125 grain point. These fly...
