Best Archery Targeting Arrows in 2020



BARNETT 16075 Outdoors Carbon Crossbow 20-Inch Arrows with Field Points (5 Pack) Review:


I am writing this review just on the condition of the bolts and that they are what I ordered. On the condition - I saw several reviews where they were not packed in their box correctly and the fletching was damaged. Mine came in a Barnett box and the arrows were held in two plastic holders that held the arrows apart - no damage fletching. Also, nocks and inserts were all good. Lastly, the field points were in the box. All good.

And then the bolts - they are Barnett Headhunters - made by Easton. They are labeled in this way and match exactly the bolts that came with my new Barnett Ghost 360, which was brand new - just got it and it was packed by Barnett December, 2016.

Some folks have mentioned that they are not the correct weight - I can't confirm that exactly. I have a quality scale that measures in grams - they weigh 26 grams with the 100 grain field points installed - all of them. That is 401 grains. But since there are 15.4 grains in a gram - they could weigh as much as about 416 grains before my scale would flip to 27 grams. Hope this is helpful.



KESHES Archery Carbon Hunting Arrows for Compound & Recurve Bows - 30 inch Youth Kids and Adult Target Practice Bow Arrow - Removable Nock & Tips Points (12 Pack) Review:


 Product is really good for what your paying for. So far no problem using them as target practice. Only one has teared apart but that’s because I hit another arrow with it. If your barely getting started with archery and you don’t want to spend lots of money on expensive arrows and get them lost or break them. I encourage you to buy this ones there affordable and good. There a little long for my taste I rather have a 26inch but it will do for practice. My bow is set up right now at 37 draw weight and 26 draw length. just started archery couple weeks ago.In a year or two I’ll upgrade to a better bow and also arrows but for now there great.



Elong Fiberglass Arrows Archery 24 26 Inch Target Shooting Practice Safetyglass Recurve Bows Suitable for Youth Children Woman Beginner Review:


The arrows a fairly true, inexpensive, and modestly made. They are not by any means professional type arrows, but you would not expect that for the price. They are great starter arrows for kids or adults who have little or no experience with a bow and arrow.



Pointdo 30inch Carbon Arrow Fluorescence Color Targeting and Practice and Hunting Arrows for Compound Bow and Recurve Bow with Removable Tips Review:


I have used these arrows only for one session of shooting, so please keep that in mind. Having that been said, these arrows performed perfectly. They fly straight and I was able to get consistent groupings with them. The only thing I had to do with the arrows when I received them was boil up some water and straighten the vanes. It wasn't difficult at all, and took a few seconds of exposing it to the steam. The Nocks fit well on my 12 strand B50 Dacron string and none have come off. I did however have to twist the Nocks into proper alignment when I got them. None of my tips came out, no cracks in the shafts, good arrows. I also really like the paint job. The green is super bright. I do realize that these are by no means great arrows however, they also do not cost as much as great arrows. For the money, these arrows are a solid buy.



TTAD 12PCS Red Turkey Feather 31 inches Carbon Arrows Replacement Tips Targeting Arrows Archery for Recurve Longbow Hunting&Practice Review:


You can about tell how good these arrows are by how often amazon's fulfillment center runs out of stock. They are all-around outstanding budget arrows, and of better quality than similarly priced arrows I've seen in stores with plastic fletching, even if they do seem to be edging higher and higher in price.

We use these for traditional, instinctive archery training, with bows from 25-45 lbs, firing from 5-20 meters. They've performed consistently for all our archery needs. Like all carbon fiber arrows, they're as accurate as you could possibly want, very straight, and never bending when an arrow goes astray or hits something hard. Unlike aluminum and wood, you don't have to worry about needing to check to see if the arrow needs straightening every time you shoot. And the feathers hold up well. Even when we need to pull an arrow all the way through our straw bale backstop (when the head gets buried between the bales), or push it back in the direction it came from, a simple brush with your hand and they look good as new. I keep wondering when the white paper adhesive will pull loose and need to be removed, but so far that hasn't happened to any, and despite the rather cheapness of the paper, it makes the arrows much easier to see from a distance.

Of course, like with all budget arrows with removable tips we've tried, the tips could benefit from a drop of blue Loctite, else you'll be snugging them after each and every shot. The nocks are glued in, but while they have held perfectly firm with no sign of loosening after being fired hundreds of times, we did pull out one without too much difficulty, after hitting the nock with another fired arrow. So the glues don't seem to be so strong that the nocks can't be replaced. Heating the arrow with a soldering rod should make removal even easier.

We've found cheaper carbon fiber arrows on amazon with real feathers that have been good performers as well. But they came with lighter tips and cheaper nocks. As long as the price doesn't keep creeping up, we'd still recommend these over all others we've tried, largely due to the better tips and nocks. They were shipped like all the arrows we've bought on amazon to date, a box within a box with the arrows supported by 3-4 Styrofoam blocks.

I didn't knock the grade a star for the arrows not featuring an odd colored feather, as with all but compound bows, such isn't a serious consideration. If you're using these with a compound bow, investing in a permanent marker may be in order. Those using the arrows with traditional bows like the laminated, fiberglass and wood composite, and twin/snake bows we use them with will find there is little to no difference in accuracy regardless of how the feathers are orientated when you shoot. And three red arrows are easier to see at a distance than only two or one.



TenPoint Omni-CUB Crossbow Unloading Bolt, 6 Pack, (HEA-00017.6) Review:


Works great with my stealth crossbow. The only negative is that I hunt probably 40 -60 times a year and these can get costly. Since we have a dove field near our hunting area I shoot these fairly steeply (~60 degrees) into the air so that I can try to find them when they fall. I recover roughly 50% for reuse since some break during the fall and some can't be found. I would be careful with how steeply you shoot for your own protection and proper function coming out of the crossbow, but this has worked for me.



GPP 28 Fiberglass Archery Target Arrows - Practice Arrow or Youth Arrow for Recurve Bow Review:


GPP vs ANTSIR Arrows
I shoot 40-pound pull recurve bows. I couldn't decide from the descriptions on Amazon which arrows to buy, so I bought a dozen of each - 28-inch, 3-inch 3-fletch. In the photos, the ANTSIR is the top arrow.
The ANTSIR arrows are about 1/4-inch longer, lighter, and slightly less stiff. (I do not have the tools to weigh or measure flex.)
The ANTSIR fletching is softer; wrinkles and stays wrinkled.
The ANTSIR shafts have write raised print, rougher than GPP (GPP shinier, no print).
The ANTSIR arrows have a little more glue slop around fletching.
The ANTSIRs have a progressive two-step nock, they snap onto the string serving once, and then again.
Both ANTSIR and GPP nocks were too small, too tight on the bow string serving. I had to drill (3/32-inch bit) and file out all the nocks to allow smoother string release.
The GPPs are a little heavier – drop a couple inches more on the way to the target (at 30 yards).
GPP’s fletchng is ½-inch farther forward on the shaft than ANTSIR.
GPP nocks are narrower and 1/8-inch shorter (places the string 1/8-inch closer to arrow point).

Both appear to have the same tip.
Both are well made and worth the price.

So, I like GPP better, but I’m keeping the ANSIR arrows, too.



ANTSIR 28 30 Training Arrows-Archery Practice Target Arrows with Durable Shaft Blunt Tip for Kids Youth or Beginners on Recurve Bow Long Bow Review:


ANTSIR vs GPP Arrows
UPDATE: Shot these a few times. So far, four of the GPPs have broken, and only one Antsir. The plastic fletching on the Antsirs show a little more wear than the GPPs. I will buy more Antsirs.

PANDARUS Archery 28" Fiberglass Archery Target Practice Arrows, for Children, Woman or Beginner, for Recuve Bow(Pack of 12) Review:


First arrows I ever ordered I ordered another set just to have more the fletching gets messed up somewhat on a few and thows trajectory off but I am using. A big screen tv box stuffed with other boxes and other such things as a target sometimes the arrows fly right though it and I think that’s where the damage comes in but they are well worth the money espically for a beginner I espically like the knocking some
Break yes but they fit my string perfect more so than some
Other arrows I tried out I ordered these in 30 inch because the other arrows I ordered that size (although half broke right off ) the other half I put the spare knocks from these arrows on and the accuracy is incredible
