Which Broomstick? is a periodically released magazine about broomsticks. It advertises and sells all sorts of broomsticks for Quidditch players. The magazine also test-rides all makes of broomstick and provides reviews on the experience.[1] Oliver Wood, the old Gryffindor Quidditch team captain has been seen reading it.

In 1993, Oliver Wood allowed Harry Potter to borrow it, to find a replacement for his destroyed Nimbus 2000.[2] He later recommended that Harry order a new broomstick using an order form that can be found in the back of this magazine.[3] Later, as Harry was riding his firebolt at the second Quidditch of the season, Lee Jordan noted that the Firebolt was the broomstick of choice for the Quidditch World Cup.[4]

In the summer of 1995, Ron Weasley quoted Which Broomstick regarding the speed of the Comet 260 while praising the capabilities of the Cleansweep Eleven he received as a present for becoming a Gryffindor prefect.[5]

The editor of this magazine provided an endorsement for Quidditch Through the Ages.
