    Default Gator Vanes introduces Gator Feathers.

    Louie Rangle, the designer of the Gator Vanes is now ready to release his feathers to the open market.
    My wife and I along with a select few have been shooting his products for the last 2 years helping him with feedback on the products, and I have to say they are one of the best archery innovations to come out in a long time.
    The feathers will come 18 to a pack and they are 6" long consisting of 6-1" segments and 1/2" tall.
    These are the only fletching that can be custom tuned to your shooting demands.
    They will be priced at $20 per pack and come in a multitude of colors.
    Here is Louie's e-mail address for more info....gatorvanes@yahoo.com

    Laz,
    With 2 fins you can do up 18 shafts. The feathers come 6" long, thats 6 segments so you can get one shaft per feather. With 3 fins like I shoot. thats 3 feathers for 2 shafts so you can do up 12 shafts.

    Laz,
    I am shooting the Harvest Time HT-4's cut at 27-5/8" for a total length of 29".
    I am using 100 grain glue in target points.
    Total finished weight of the arrow is 356 grains.
    I just weighted one of the 3 segments I have and it weighted 2.6 grains.
