I mean, sorry, I think Clint and Ollie are awesome; but am I the only one...??

A couple of Hawkeye bios say that he has notches on the nocks of his arrows that tell him what kind they are. Seems a pretty good explanation, though the speed at which they draw from the quiver, I can't imagine you'd get a feel that quick of which arrow you're pulling. But then they also arrange them in the quiver in order, and its not like they have 30 different arrow types - just 5 would do.

Taser, regular, boxing glove (though by boxing glove I mean the type below), timed explosive, sonic emitting or gas releasing, and one grapnel.
