The Bear Archery Safetyglass Target Arrows are the WORST arrows Ive every shot. Kids, amateur, or professional doesn't matter these arrows are terrible. The fletchings hook the rest on its way out of the bow throwing off your shot, causing alot of frustration for anyone. Second I nearly took my eye out due to the loose nocks which decide to come off the string as you draw back or as your standing motionless aiming which is a safety hazard and becomes VERY frustrating also. Third after you shoot them about 30 rounds a piece the nocks decide to fall off in flight or break on contact with the target. I know how to shoot so that cant be why they fair so terrible. If your looking to shoot Traditional archery go with a wood or cedar arrow; they last longer and are more accurate then any other arrow you can find for youth or adult (Traditional)shooting, plus where you can buy one of these fiberglass arrows for $5 you can buy one cedar arrow for $3. All around this is a terrible buy don't do it, its a waste of 15 bucks! And for the parents who buy these arrows look at them and say there great, ask them to go out and shoot em'.

The fiberglass shafts should be plenty durable, and are straight, but the field points were cheap-looking, The plastic fletchings were bent from being pressed against the package. The fletchings can be straightened by heating them with a blow-dryer and smoothing them out.

I didn't try to shoot these with my bow, because it has a maximum 35 lb draw weight, and the arrows are printed on the shafts, "MAXIMUM DRAW WEIGHT 30 LBS." Don't take chances with safety; only buy these for very light draw weight bows.

Probably okay for kids just learning to shoot, but they aren't a good dollar value at about $5 each.

My son is in the afterschool archery program and uses these with his Genesis Compound bow. They shoot well, fly straight and are a perfect First arrow to help teach stance, Draw and aiming. I dont know if i would recomend them for a moderate or adavanced shooter as they are Fiberglass and ive seen These shot vs Carbon or aluminum arrows and Id Perfer the Carbon/Alum as a advanced shooter. The Nocks and Fletchings have been on for over a 100 rounds of shooting these arrows, but that is also in a control enviornment with a real target and a 'arrow catch' behind the targets. If you shoot them into a wall, eventually ANY arrow will break. The Tips do get a bit dinged up if you miss the target and glance it off of something hard, but a little acetone and the tips do come off. you can buy replacement tips and use some LocTite CA to glue em back on.

in short, if you are looking to get your child into archery in a controled eviornment, not just toying around in the back yard, these work well.

After two hours at the archery range with a 35lb bow and a 15m target with six of these arrows, I lost 5 tips and 4 nocks.

The tips were blunt (well, bluntER) from the package and didn't fare well with a standard cardboard-over-haybale target. They came off the shaft very easily. Same with the nocks; after hitting the target frame once, the nock simply fell off.

Not all of the arrows were perfectly straight, though most of them were straight enough to fly true. The fletching was straight from the package, but on three of the arrows, the nocks were not lined up properly with the flecthing (string perpendicular to "wacky" feather).

I will not be buying these again. I'm going to save my money up and spend $30 on a set of 10 better quality bamboo arrows with pheasant feathers, field tips, and proper nocks. I recommend you do the same. Otherwise you'll have $20 of arrows, which buys you 6, and after two hours at the range you'll be SOL and out of usable arrows.

The feathers, tips and guides on these arrows all came off within 5 minutes of use. Arrows are cheaply made and I would never buy again.

I got these arrows for a long bow I made for my wife. They were the cheapest I could find, and I wasn't expecting a whole lot. We've taken about 50 shots so far, and I've only had one minor issue. One of the tips popped off when I was pulling an arrow out of the target. I used gorilla glue to put it back on, and I want this to happen to the other arrows because when the glue cured, it came out of the tip a little bit and formed a ring. This actually makes it easier to remove the arrows from the targets because the back of the tips don't catch as easily. As I said, I wasn't expecting a lot from these arrows, but the feathers and nocks have stayed on so far, and I'd prefer to gorilla glue the tips on anyways. If you're looking for a cheap arrow, these aren't too bad. I just want to emphasize that I'm using these with a long bow because a compound bow may fracture these arrows. I'll post back if anything changes.

These are durable and easy to see. The are just what I was hoping for. They don't float though so be careful around water.

I really wanted these arrows, but after ive shot these, and then the really nice steel feathered arrows, in the long run it is $10 more to get 6 of those for $40, while 6 of these would be $30, the plastic fins scrape the top of your hand and mess up the flight path, but i got 6 real nice steel, feathered arrows at my local archery place for $40, (btw 6 is the normal number of arrows in target archery) I'm sorry to say, these aroows are useless, two of the tips dented and one broke from shooting at a cardboard bow w/ styrofoam in it yes it BROKE THE TIP! the tip (width wise) is larger than the shaft, resulting in it getting stuck.
