Good price – hard hitting., November 20, 2013 By Mickey D – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Golden Power Fiberglass Practice/hunting Arrows Point for Recurve Bow or Traditional Bow (Misc.) First, these arrows are a bit different from what I’m used to seeing. The nocks do not go over the shaft, they go into the shaft. I’ve never seen this so I don’t know where I could even buy replacements. The shaft itself is simple with no identifying makers marks. They are simply high gloss black fiberglass tubes with inserts, nocks and fletching. I can appreciate the simplicity of these arrows and they seem to shoot well. I’ve had them for only a couple of days but I practice daily and they seem to be fine. They do have some heft to them so when they hit the target they hit with authority and drive deep into the straw. I shoot a 50 pound Samik Sage recurve and these compliment it very well. The packaging from the shipper was minimalistic to be sure – it looked like they got some bubble wrap, cut an old black garbage bag up, wrapped it around the arrows, put some tape and a label on and away it went. It did not inspire care nor protection of the product that was sold to me but, luckily, the arrows came undamaged. For the price I would recommend these. I’m sure that eventually I will have to do some replacement of fletching or a broken nock but I’m guessing that they will serve me as a good practice arrow. June 12, 2014 update: I practice with these arrows at least several times a week and have had zero problems with them so far. No breaking, no cracking, nothing. For the money, they are a good deal. I have read some of the one star ratings and can’t figure out how somebody could break one of these on the first shot. Also, the buyer who has the 50# bow well, my bow is a 50# recurve and these shoot fine for me. I will use these in the fall hunt and post an update should I have any issues. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 11 of 11 people found the following review helpful Quite a surprise, January 27, 2014 By R. S. Rehmel – This review is from: Golden Power Fiberglass Practice/hunting Arrows Point for Recurve Bow or Traditional Bow (Misc.) When I ordered these in 6 January 2014 I did not realize they would be coming from China. The delivery date was set for 20 Feb 2014. These arrived on 24 January 2014 well ahead of schedule. They work very well on my 45 pound recurve bow. The field tips can be removed and broad heads placed on them for hunting. UPDATE:I have read some reviews reporting the shafts splintering on contact with targets. My experience after shooting at least every other weekend for the past 7 months has resulted in the following; two arrows lost in the grass, two arrows splintered by being struck by another arrow. Also I lost two in the grass that lay there in rain and sun shine and being run over by my mower. When I found them again they worked just find. I use a hurricane target. I use these primarily with a 40 lb recurve bow. For the price they are great PRACTICE arrows. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Buy these and a tube of fletching glue., March 7, 2015 By Stephen L. Noe “Stephen L. Noe” (Dallas, TX) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Golden Power Fiberglass Practice/hunting Arrows Point for Recurve Bow or Traditional Bow (Misc.) We purchased these arrows and it took about 2 months to receive them. Once we got them they were bulk packed. The fletchings were all crumpled but we put them in boiling water and they came back straight. The fletchings and inserts will come off so do yourself a favor and buy a tube of fletching glue. You’ll need to work on these with fletching glue. Once you glue them all up and put locktite on the threads you’ll find that these arrows fly true and are reliable.They are standard thread so they’ll take a regular broadhead or field point of your weight choice. The fletchings are the most flexible I’ve seen. They aren’t feathers but they give almost like a feathers. We use them with a Martin Jaguar 45# shooting off the rest and they fly very true for us. The arrows we got do not have glued in knocks like others say. They were the regular allen type knocks you can get at any store. Overall, I think they are not bad but be aware that you will be gluing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
