The crossbow movement continues to sweep the country. They’re legal for hunting in varying degrees in 49 states. More hunters are giving them a shot for fun and practical reasons, and their short arrows are a staple that crossbow hunters repeatedly buy. Crossbow arrows feature the same technology used in full-length arrows for compounds and recurves, which means incredible speeds, accuracy and spine/weight tolerances. High quality arrows are essential for safe and fun operation and also allow crossbows to perform at ideal levels of power and speed. Here’s a brief overview of some of the best crossbow arrows on the market.
