    What would be a good choice of arrow for a begginer and how many different kinds and how many arrows in general does the avarage archer keep? And what would the average lifespan for something like a fiberglass/safety glass arrow be? I suppose it depends on the target :p Sorry im just hungry for knowledge.

    When I started shooting it seemed like arrows were a constant expense...but as I improved they lived longer...now I generally buy a dozen a year...mainly due to the amount of shooting I do. Carbon arrows can get fatigued after a while so I usually just replace them every year...

    I keep 12 arrows generally. right now I believe I have 15 or 16...:noidea:
    Carbon arrows are pretty tough and they wont bend like aluminum...the only fiberglass arrows I know are short which may work for you...they are usually 24 or 25" and limited to 35 pounds which fits your bow...they have a tip that is glued on or crimped and are pretty indestructable and around $3 (US) each at a sporting goods store even walmart sells them...

    The ONLY arrows in my entire town sadly were at Canadian Tire and they only had 30" fiberglass arrows which were 3 for $20 :censored: they work well. when drawn back they only are about an inch infront of the bow so i suppose that works for me. I think i will take a trip to le baron. (not sure if any of you know these stores but they are the best hunting/camping store available to me)

    No, I am not familiar with those stores. but 30" fiberglass should be fine they may be alittle heavy but should work fine. and 3 for 20 is around what carbons cost

    I'd look into carbons. You may have to get them online if there is no one around who sells them. I assume you're in Canada? Don't know about the regulations there if so. :noidea:
