    No they've been around forever and they're not too heavy...they are usually for draw weights under 45# though...Alot of guys buy them for youth setups...They sell for a couple bucks a piece...

    yep

    I know about the Fiberglass one's we use over here
    but this is an AUSTRALIAN Pro-shop that doesnt sell any other type of arrow
    except Fiberglass and these are rated for a 55-70lb bow:noidea:

    I am a bit sceptic on shooting fiberglass arrows and won't be trying them out any time soon... why don't you try a dozen or so and tell us how they work for ya? :biggrin1:

    I have no problem with using them on my kids bow (20#), but anything bigger than than, I imagine can't be that great :noidea:

    I used them a lot in the late 50 and early 60's. I killed a lot of deer with them. they were a tough arrow. held up real good. I cant remenber ever breaking one. I didnt know they still made them. I'll have to check ebay and see if I can get some. would like to see how they compare with carbon shafts.
