    I use a right hand helical on everything I shoot.
    Out here in So. Ca. we do alot of long range shooting at 3-D targets and I find for me they work better.

    I use feathers exclusively. I have a Bitz. jig with right and left hand helical clamps. Most times I use RH, but if I should find a good deal on LH fletch I'll get them. Last batch I got a good deal on was 4" black Trueflights---$2.00 for the hundred pack. Can't beat that.

    I use Bohning X Vanes Shield Cuts, 1 3/4" and fletch them full helical. Short vane, it doesn't show much helical. And my arrow doesn't weigh a whole lot, 322 grs.

    Thanks all you get me thinking. I'm trying Norway 3D 1.8 with a right twist (AZ Minnie) on my 3D set up and Norway Fussions on my hunting set up. The Neon Fussion green and yellow with a white cock vane truly lights up.
