Fiberglass is the arrow of choice for youth camps and other group-archery programs. Inexpensive, relatively straight and available in varied lengths, these arrows are a great way to get started in the sport. They help you learn whether archery is something you enjoy before investing some coin on equipment.
Pros: Inexpensive, usually ready-made at your archery retailer; and consistent from batch to batch.
Cons: Difficult to custom-size; prone to splintering; heavy, which hurts accuracy at longer distances. For recurve bows only.
