    I was only able to take about a dozen shots this morning before i got ready for Thanksgiving feast. We are still having 35-40 mph winds. The winds are coming up from California...they say. Anyways, I shot the three different gators in groups. they always stayed in a 1 1/2 inch group even out to 40 yards. I was shooting off to the left. But I had bad winds. Not the best for trying out fletching. I did get a vane rub on one of them.

    And you live in Oregon, not further north east.
    Don , how are you trimming these Gator vanes down, got a feather burner?
    It's funny how we've almost come full circle, back to feathers. Heck, I began with full length feathers, pre cutting a 5" and two 3" fletch from each, or two 5 inch. Ah... the smell of burning feathers in the evening.....will get ya chased out to the garage.

    No burner, I just use a pair of scissors to trim them down in hight, same for snipping them to length.
    I like the way they fly better at 3/8" tall over the 1/2". Out to longer yardages they don't drop as bad. When I shoot them 1/2" tall I hold the tip of my arrow on the top edge of the target face at 50 yards, trimmed down I hold with the tip under the top edge of the target face.
