    Hello @MarkCZ ,

    Did you mean to inquire as to if carbon arrows are the best material recommended for a 55lb. draw compound bow, or which brand of carbon arrows to use?

    Carbon or carbon fiber arrows are pretty much the industry standard for modern compound bows. They are lighter, faster, and more adaptable to FOC manipulation over aluminum shafts. The exception being a full metal jacket arrow shaft that combines carbon fiber with an aluminum core to acquire the best aspects of both materials. FMJ's are usually the highest grain per inch shaft which limits their use to applications best suited for a heavy arrow that can take a lot of abuse. For most hunting applications, the carbon fiber arrow is the preferred material of choice... There are many manufactures today offering endless choices of carbon fiber arrows for any budget. All manufacturers will have spine chart that will help you to select the best spine for your individual draw weight and draw length. Not to endorse any particular manufacturer, but a few of the better manufactures to consider would be Easton, Carbon Express, Gold Tip, and Victory to start...
