Todays Modern Archery Arrows

 

 

If you have been involved in the sport of archery for any length of time, whether for target archery or hunting, you know the importance of the arrow used. Way back in the early days of archery, Robin Hood used wooden arrows with his long bow, and in fact, wooded arrows were used for many hundreds of years. However, the wooden arrow had its flaws, like not flying true, breaking, warping and not holding the arrowhead or feathers intact. They also could rarely be used over and over.

In comes the metal or aluminum arrow that was factory made, strong and durable. Used mostly by modern day compound bow hunters, because the force and torque created by the pulleys put tremendous strain on the arrow that these were the only arrows that could be used. These arrows could be repeatedly used, and more importantly, the arrowheads could be changes easily from field points to razor sharp blades for hunting.

However, there became some obvious flaws or difficulties with the aluminum arrow during flight, which caused the researchers to investigate a new material for bows. An example of a “flaw” that might ring true with hunters is starting to draw back your arrow as you aim at your trophy buck. As you draw back in sub zero weather the arrow starts to vibrate against the fiberglass bow creating a shrill noise, spooking your trophy.

Enter the new Fiberglass Arrows for both Recurve and compound bow shooters of today. These arrows made of fiberglass are resistant to weather conditions, fly true, are properly weighted and will make any day at the range for practice a fun experience.
