They suck. 

They whip through the air at about 5 mph and gently drift to earth yards
from their intended target. Even from a heavy bow, you can almost catch
them out of the air. Markland/Baldar/Thistle arrows hit MUCH harder.

Unfortunately, Toobs also the perfect ammo for my ballista, primarily
because I don't believe PVC shafts are safe. Goof Toobs are cheap, they
fold instead of shatter, and it takes me about 30 seconds to convert one
into a bolt w. a tennis ball and a little tape.
