The Silver Arrow was a broomstick produced by broom-maker Leonard Jewkes, and was the true fore-runner of the racing broom. It was capable of speeds greater than the Oakshaft 79 or the Moontrimmer, it's maximum speed of seventy miles per hour with a decent tailwind was very good for it's time, but Leonard worked alone and demand outstripped supply. It was eventually replaced by the Cleansweep series.[1]

Behind the scenes

The Silver Arrow was probably named after the first Muggle-made racing cars in the 1920's, which was a fore-runner to the ones produced today.
