    Helical fletchings will induce an arrow spin more quickly than with a simple offset at the expense of aerodynamic drag. So in the end helical will be slightly slower. Using my 35lbs traditional bow...

    George, forgive me but I've never heard that justification for an arrow's spine. My understanding is that it's a function of draw length and draw power (pounds at that draw length). The cut of the...

    You mentioned keeping them dry--wrong. Hose them down real good. As you soak them they will swell and will stop the arrows much better. I have the same setup and when they go through the bails...

    I found that mine did best at 7.75 with a well stretched flemish string and a 30" draw length. 8 was too far and resulted in some stacking. 1/8" either way makes a difference so you kind of have to...

    How does bow length affect draw?

    So let's say I have three of the same make/model of bow in 35lbs draw, except one is 58", one is 62" and the other is 64" AMO.

    How does the draw of each bow differ from the archer's perspective. ...
