I have edited my supports profile so that it's perfect and falls off perfect but when I switched to carbon fiber polycarbonate everything else prints fine but my supports are all messed up like they're under extruding. Does anybody have any suggestions on my supports?

    You can try kicking up the "support flow" in the Material section.  I find that because the support goes down first on a layer that a long combing move or a lot of retractions in the infill can cause under-extrusion at the start of the support structure.  Under-extrusion all through the support may mean you have under-extrusion in the part as well.
