Flight archery is one of the oldest forms of archery. In recent years it has gained in popularity especially with the release of films based on the world of archery. The sport of archery can be traced back to the 7th century BC in China and it was known as “arrow wars”. The Chinese developed their own system of archery using a bow called the “arrow” which was curved like a rifle. Over time the bow has developed into the much today’s weapon of choice for many hunters around the world.
Unlike regular archery flight archery does not have a longbow or a bow and arrow; it utilizes an arrow with a long flight pattern which is able to travel further than its equivalent size in a standard bow. The reason for this is that the arrow’s shape is optimized for longer distance shots. This means the arrow must be made of a harder, heavier material. A good example of this is the carbon fiber arrow.
When looking at an arrow one will notice that it is usually made out of a single piece of carbon fiber and is round at the tip. The reason for this is because the tip of an arrow is used for stability and control when shooting. The arrow is also used for accuracy; the archer need only aim at a target slightly off center in order to hit it. Flight archery is a great sport for the entire family, as all can enjoy it from childhood on up.

In order to get quality arrows, one should consider purchasing them from a reputable archery supplier. The internet has many sources for quality arrows and suppliers. Another nice thing about shopping online for arrows is that there is usually a large selection to choose from.
