I just got some new carbon express maxima shafts and am about to start fletching. Last year I used orange/white vanes for hunting. I am not sure what the colors will be this year. I will post some pics when I am finished. What color fletching do y'all use?

Last year I used all white - this year for my hunting sticks I have 2 white / 1 lime -- practice arrows are reverse 2 lime / 1 white.

Have to have white on there so can get an idea of the blood color after the shot, dark vs light/bright vs pinky - gut/liver vs heart/main arteries vs lung

@ T.R and Hutch hahahahahahaha you guys are sooooo funny. The problem with pink fletching is I cant decide what color the cock feather should be. But heck you you know me to well, my old practice arrows a re pink wraped w/ pink and white fletching. :o

I show up at 3d shoot with purple fletching they drop me from A class to C class, if I had pink they would have put me in the womans class lol

I use any combination of red, flo green or flo orange with a white cock feather, or black with a flo orange cock feather. Those last ones look mean but I just use them indors, not that I miss much but I'd like to have at least a chance to find my arrow out in the field / woods.

I think pink is a great idea but only if you have a dark colored bow with a matching pink string. Think hutch can make those from what I've read on the forum. Could be a specialty item for you Hutch, cater to the female archers out there?

Remember gents, any colour goes as long as you wear a matching hat :p

Well Durandal, I think we can cater to typically8's feminine side.

Here is the string set.

Look @ the Norway Fusion vanes, two orange and one green. I like them as their easier to track in flight. The vanes are stiffer and tougher then Blazers or AAE Max hunters. I've used them all and will stick with theses fusions.

Going to hunt with Orange/White on the Victory VForce this year, but just ordered some Lime/Brown for next year. Needed something to go with the new bow. Going to put a couple together when the new vanes come in to see how they look.

Just switched to one white, two hot pink myself this year. I gotta say, they are easy to spot in the target. I got to thinking about colors, and the only option that wasn't a pretty natural color in the fall woods was pink. Lime, yellow, red, orange....all fall colors. Pink stands out after the shot, so easier to find the arrows. Left the cock vane white to see the blood better. I top them off with a bright red nock.
