The Silver Arrow was a broomstick produced by broom-maker Leonard Jewkes, and was the true forerunner of the racing broom. It was capable of speeds greater than the Oakshaft 79 or the Moontrimmer, its maximum speed of seventy miles per hour with a decent tailwind was very good for its 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 forerunner to the ones produced today.
