- Developed sometime after the Moontrimmer of 1901 and before the advent of the Cleansweep One in 1926, the good-looking Silver Arrow broom achieved higher speeds than either the Moontrimmer or the Oakshaft 79. Its maximum speed of 70 miles per hour with a decent tailwind was very good for its time. (QA9)
- However, also like the Moontrimmer, the demand for the Silver Arrow was higher than Mr Jewkes could manufacture. (QA9)
- Madam Hooch had one once upon a time and remembers it fondly. She compared the Firebolt to it in a way that suggests that the Silver Arrow had a slim handle which might have been made of ash. (PA13)
- A vintage Silver Arrow in "excellent condition" is advertised for sale in the Daily Prophet (DP2)
Although the date printed on the Daily Prophet Newsletter DP2 is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for that event is 1992-1993.
