It all depends on what you prefer, I personaly like carbons. They are more durable than aluminum, recover faster and are stronger at a lighter weight. If you prefer shooting a super heavy arrow, Id go with aluminum. If you prefer a stronger, lighter, faster, possibly better penetrating arrow go with the carbons.

I shoot carbons from the compound and aluminum from the recurve.

I'll just say that I've never bent a carbon arrow.

Neither have I, but I've had bunches of 'emcracked, broken orblown to smithereens when I've hit trees,rocks or metal target stands. It's much better when they get broken or blown tobits though. A crack that you don't find can send you to the emergency room next time you shoot that arrow.
