    It mostly depends on the weight of your bow. Arrows are "spined" for a certain weight range. Carbon, aluminum, wood is a personal choice since they all work well with the right bow. For hunting, a heavier arrow will penetrate better then a light one at the same speed and distance. It all comes down to kinetic energy at the target which is determined by speed/weight. A faster bow can achieve the same kinetic energy with a lighter arrow then a slower bow does with a heavier arrow. You had asked about recurve bows in another section. Here is my personal choice for my recurves as well as my compounds. I shoot Easton XX75's, size 2117, 31 inch, four fletched with 5" feather (dry weather) or vanes (wet weather). They work well in all my bows. I shoot 145 grain broad heads because they do a great job even when they hit bone and almost all my shots are 25 yards or less so I never worry about trajectory. The best approach is to take your bow to a bow shop and shoot several different kinds of arrows and see which you like the best.

    Beman ICS Camo Hunter 400's.

    I use 2.25"quickspin vanes, 29'draw at 60lbs with 100gr broadheads

    Shoot 255fps.

    Like said above, arrows must match you draw weight, etc...
