    That One :-)

    But I do have a bow square on my archery tool bench.

    Haven't used it in a decade, maybe two, but I can't make myself to throw it away. Like shooting a bad dog you don't want.

    Why would one vane be more accurate than any other vane? An interesting question.

    Having installed Spirals on several bows, and in the "frakenbow" context, on other Hoyts, I think the $200 number is light. It's not an easy mission.

    :), that was pretty funny. Thanks.

    I used them on my XX75 indoor shafts and they were fine. With a modest offset, they get shot off less, I never saw any difference with accuracy.

    Bohning makes good stuff, not much risk there.

    Looking at the specs, it seems rather restricted in terms of the vanes and the amount of offset you can apply. If you want to experiment with offset...

    I've done that with several sets. Beman ICS 340/400's, and CX200's are by far the oldest arrows I own and still use. Not actually sure how old any single shaft is, as in those three versions, I've...

    Don't do that.

    It could work if you back the limbs off, a lot, but with the bow cranked up, it may split the limbs.

    I have lined a couple up for clearance and such over the last 50 years, but if the head is on straight, and tuned to the bow, it doesn't make a bit of difference.
