Step 4: types of arrows.
there are lots of arrows that are available with each of them offering different advantages, i will cover a couple of types of arrows below...
CARBON: carbon arrows are very light, but they are less stiff than their counterparts, and they could also be considered more dangerous as carbon fiber doesn't bend and snap, it splinters into lots of small shards that could cause damage to you or your bow, if they aren't used properly.
ALUMINIUM: aluminium arrows are slightly heavier than carbon arrows but they are stiffer and break less easily, they are also safer because they don't splinter. another advantage of aluminium arrows are that they are easier to cut to size if you make your own arrows.
WOOD: wooden arrows are the most basic type of arrow, they were the ones first used with early bows, wooden arrows are used with longbows and some low power recurve bows, wooden arrows are not used with higher power recurve bows or compound bows because they would break much too easily, wooden arrows also use feather flights rather than the plastic vanes of carbon or aluminium arrows, this makes them less durable.
