Carbide last long between any sharpening or change of replaceable bits, but you cant get carbide as sharp as good HHS once you learn to sharpen, as a turner you will have to learn that, it comes with turning.
As previous stated, carbide has its uses, roughing, but sharp, good HSS, will give you a better end finish.
