    hey spiker nice splice job... do you have better results with the fletch out closer to nock end...I see it looks like 5/16 or less? I set all mine around 7/8.. just the mark i use on my jig.
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    Actually the back of the feather is 15/16" from the nock groove.
    They are just old swaged XX75 2213's that I fletched probably 15 years ago.
    Still shoot a few of them out of my old DH recurve just for fun.

    You set them any closer, how are you gonna get them big fingers of yours on the shaft?

    as it is one of the flu flus touches the ole lip critter tickles
    i was just wondering if setting reguler feathers closer to end would be of benefit..Other then no room for the fingers...not like it matters cause they fly pretty good
