My input,blazers ive used them through a biscuit with no wear at all.My advise get a dropaway and keep shooting the vanes you have if you like them.

You can shoot feathers through a biscuit no problem. One of the best parts about shooting feathers is that they lay down upon impact with something and then pop right back up once past. ;)

Ya i have been thinking about that but they get kinda pricy for me. The wrinkling could have been from my bow being out of tune. Any thought on th trophy ridge revolution?

Hi Cnight.........Ive never used a WB but at the shop where I help out alot of custumers do. There has allways been a problem with wear using this rest.......its accurate and simple but it contacts the fletching of the arrow and that means wear.......feathers I would think should fold as they pass through.........not sure how long they will hold up.

We may have posted at the same time, so in case you missed my last post, you CAN shoot feathers through a biscuit. Secondly, I use the revolution rest now (switched from biscuit recently) and love it!

everybody keeps saying feathers are so expensive, you can get single colored shieldback feathers from gateway for $5 a dozen, so it would only cost you $15 to get enough to fletch a dozen arrows.I shoot feathers with no problem. a box of blazers cost 8-10, you would have to get 2 boxes if you wanted a different colored feather for your cock feather, so it doesnt cost that much more to shoot feathers, plus tru flight will send you a sampler pack with enough to fletch 6 arrows, but they are random colors.
