THE SILVER LINING 5000

This broom was expertly made out of ash wood, superbly sanded and polished. It's streamlike appearence and low wind resitance are excellent qualities for a n established racing and sport broom to have. Three feet in legnth it gives you enough room to spread out so you can be flatter on the broom without throwing of your balance which is key in flying. And since you now have enough room to spread out and evenly distribute your weight the slim ash handle will just add to your prescision. To make this broom run smootly, The Silver Lining 5000, has a anti-bucking charm, great for dirty games of unreferred quidditch. The Braking charm is also essential for quick stops and change fo directions , it also prevents crashes that might occur if an opponet trie to the Weinksi Faint on you. A cushiong charm is a just another ammneity to make sure you enjoy your ride. Because of all that speed a gripping charm will make sure you won't fall of your broom or lose control in the worst of conditions. Speaking of speed, The Silver Lining 5000, can go from 0-150 mph in 5 seconds!That's twice as fast as the Firebolt! If your going that fast noone will be able to detect your beautiful brown color and silver streaks. The twigs perfectly in line, are matching, made specifically from the same tree. It will move with a nod of your head or slight movement of your body, making it for experts and specialty quidditch players alike. You can buy it now for 1500 galleons! A special Price for this special broom!

Ladies and Gentlemen.. I present to you,
The Silver Lining!

Faneenala's seven d two

This broom is made out of ash wood, the right kind of wood for the right kind of broom. It ranges in sizes from 2 feet (For the youngsters and not mad for speed) to 3 feet and 5 inches long (for the qudditch players that need that extra boost). It has the usal charms like anti-bucking, anti-jinx and anti-freeze to name a few but it also has a anti-steal charmso if someone tried to steal it ti wont move an inch. It can be any color that you want. If you want a pink broom we got a pink broom. This broom is also made for speed it can go 0 to 200 mph in 7 sec 250 in 10. This is a really good broom for you qudditch players because along with speed in cant do a 360 degrre trun without any problem. How much is this going to cost well ill tell you its going to cost 2000 gallons. Cheap for a broom with this good of a performance.

The Hollistar 3000

This broom is made of mahogny wood polished and painted a deep blue. The tail is a lighter blue with streaks and the small twiggys perfectly smooth and in shape! Its natural length being 3 feet and 2 inches. It is equipped with a cushiong charm to make those vigourous games slightly smoother. A Braking Charm also comes along handy for quick stops and sharp turns! A gripping charm is also added for those rainy games! It passes the 170mph barrier making it one of the fastest broom, so think twice before you buy this broom for a youngster! The Hollistar concentrates in speed, balance and handling. Its not as expenisve as those other brooms, but we have lowered the price for just a couple of weeks! At a price of 2,000 galleons! It's normal price being 3,500.

The Phoenix 5000

The broomstick that I have created is called The Phoenix 5000, the latest in the range of Phoenix brooms. It’s made of highly polished oak, and the length and width of the handle alters to fit the rider, and the position. For example, if you are a seeker, it will become lighter to give more speed, but for the beater position, it will be sturdier.

Then tip of the broom is unique, in that it is carved into the shape of a phoenix head. This not only gives the broom class and style, but the pointed tip gives a more streamlined feel. The broom tail twigs are individually picked for their ultimate aerodynamics.

There is an “auto-pruning” charm upon the broom, which means that whenever any of the twigs are bent, broken or damaged, they will automatically replenish themselves. No more broom maintenance again!

There is an in-built cushioning charm on the handle, to give a smoother, softer ride for everyone. The Phoenix 5000 is the ideal racing broom, with the ability to reach speeds of up to 150mph.

The Phoenix 5000 is designed in a natural wood colour, rich and dark. The cost of the Phoenix 5000 is 2,500 Galleons, and it has already been snapped up by the English Quidditch Team.

My Broomstick:

Name: Flaming Spirit

Wood Type: the Flaming Spirit would be made of oak, which would be strong, and durable, but itwouldn’t be solid oak, I would use an infusion of a lighter wood such as ash on the inside to make it fly better and make it more lightweight.

Length: the Flaming Spirit would be 2.3 m long, including the tail, allowing enough room for one person to fit comfortably, and move around the broom increasing stability and turning power of the broom.

Base: The tail would be made from finely, and hand selected birch twigs for a more streamlined shape.

Charms: There would be a levitation charm on it for it to fly when directed to. A personality charm to mould to it’s owner. An Anti-Theft Charm. An Automatic Brake Charm that senses when the player has fallen off, so it stops and returns to the ground. A mild stability charm to stop the player falling off while accelerating, but not affecting their game

Speed: Can go from 0 – 200 in 3s...which is pretty fast acceleration...

Colour: Available in red, blue, green and yellow tinted wood, or normal, with gold/silver engraved Maker Name and Owner Name.

Cost: 80 000 Galleons, 7 Sickles and 15 Knuts

Additional Information: Can be made especially for each Quidditch Position for an additional 50 Galleons.

* Wood type: Alder. It is sometimes known as the warrior tree, its symbolism being that of strength, tenacity and determination. This is a perfect broom for Quiditch games.

* Length: 5 feet 4 inches, slightly taller than me

* Additional information about the base: The end is made of alder tree twins, placed together in a way to make the broom able to make complex turns.

* Any charms: it has an anti-jinz, anti-curse, comfort, and an easy flying charm

* Speed: 360mph

* Colour: has a burgandy finish

* Additional information: Is a good broom for a seeker because it allows the rider to make turns to keep up with the tricks of the snitch

* Cost: 2000 galleons
