    Neil,
    My PM bow is now empty.
    The fletchings got to you fast.
    Don't forget you can cut them down in hight, I cut mine down to 3/8" tall.
    I hope they work good for you and your friends.

    I'm leaving them full height for the first test, and then we'll try some 'snipping' and see what happens.

    Thanks again.

    Fletched up three arrows that were not working well, and now they are flying like guided missiles. They land slightly right of my current POI, and are maybe a fraction slower, but I suspect a little trim will get the speed back up.

    They sure do fly well though.

    Neil,
    They look great.
    Did you fletch them up straight or a slight offset?
    I do mine up with a tad bit of offset, just to get the shaft spinning a bit sooner.

    I noticed from the photo's that you put a slight offset on your vanes. I fletched straight, as I though the slightly offset base would do the trick.

    At 20 yards I can just see them spinning, at 30, they are definitely on the move.

    I will chrono the arrows next week, as I'm away this weekend, I also want to test them at 50 and 60 yards, but so far I am very pleased.

    They also fly great out of my Athens Excell.
