    Well, no experience of those particular ones but I do own some Avalon Tec Ones which are from the same "group of brands" (Avalon, Maximal, Buck Trail etc. are all brands of SSA Archery). I've been very impressed with them for the price paid (which was really not a lot, 40 for dozen bare shafts from Alternative). No breakages yet (apart from a Robin Hood, where the nock pin saved the arrow!), and they group exceedingly well at 18 m from my recurve. The Edge are what are sometimes called "standard diameter" carbon arrows which take the Easton S-Nock and equivalent, while the Tec Ones are skinnier, well suited to long range target shooting where all-carbon is allowed. I think it's reasonable to assume that Avalon and Maximal arrows are sourced from the same place, so they should be reasonable quality. In short, yes I'm sure they'll be fine for a compound beginner.

    I am shooting the Carbon Edge with my compound, namely the 400 spine. Nothing bad to report yet.
    If you hit stones or metal, they are done. But that is to be expected with a >= 50 ft-lbs compound, enough to disintegrate any arrow.
    I'm shooting almost one year now, and my groups depend only on my form, not the equipment. A .001 straightness arrow might make sense for a pro shooter, but not yet for me.

    I had tried 600 spine arrows with my horsebow, because the Maximal arrows are 33", and I need at least 32".
    All still intact, but I shoot them rarely, because for competitions I'm required to shoot wood arrows with that bow.
