    Default Fletching galore!

    Curious...what do you guys all use for fletching with your broadheads and/or your field points?

    Me? nothing better than 3" feathers in a right helical clamp set at 3 degree!

    I also use rayzers (spelling?) with a helical...both are great.

    Nuff said



    On my Walmart arrows I am using the 2" vanes that came on them from the factory.

    I use 2" blazers. They seem to work great for me. I use a WB and even my muzzy's are accurate out to 70 yds.

    As a 'finger flinger' I need a touch more stabilisation on my (3D) arrows. For many years I have used NAP Quickspin 2.25's, but they stopped making them about a year ago, so as my stocks have run down, I have been messing with Blazers and VaneTec and a bunch of others.

    My problem with the modern 'short and high' designs are that no matter what I do, or how I index the nock, I am getting fletching contact with the index finger of my bow holding hand, and rather than change the set up of my bow, or the anchor point I have used for donkey's years, I have just kept trying different fletchings.

    Thanks to Don (a fellow finger flinger) I am now using Gator Vane feathers, cut to 2", and they are really something; very consistent and accurate. I am now trying to get a few friends over here interested in them, as I really think they are very good.
