    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.

    I either use Blazers or Norway Predator vanes. They are basically the same thing. I've tried Quick Spins, and they work well, but drop off pretty fast after about 45 yards or so. Used Martin Fury vanes, duravanes, and a few others, but keep coming back to the Blazers or Predators.

    Too bad you can't use FOBs. I don't think there is anything that gives more stabilization.

    My buddy Kev has some FOBs for wet days, but still prefers feathers for hunting and for 3D comps.

    I know there are a couple of drop away rests that can be used by finger shooters, but I'm not sure if they would work for me, and it's a lot of messin and expense just to find out.

    I do like the FOBs though and if there was an easy way to try them, I would.

    I dont think I'll ever try FOBS....just something about them...for NeilMac, why dont you use a helical? A lot of guys over here in this area who shoot fingers, love helical with their fletching...
