    I haven't experienced any - accuracy seems to be unaffected. Right helical from an AZ easy fletch. I notice a couple of whiskers bent forward, can't tell if they were there beofer I used the helicals or not.

    I've noticed that when I had my buddy fletch my arrows with his Arizona mini right helical it would tear up my biscuit brissels. This is why I'm now looking for a Bitzenberger straight jig.

    Yes the helical did this to my biscuit to so I just cut out the bent whiskers and do straight from now on no more problems.

    Yes, helicals will knock the snot out of the whisker biscuit's bristles.

    I have with out a issue except for some ware on the feathers and of course over time on the WB as well. I did go to using the large size hole in the WB,. and this reduced the ware. I was shooting carbon 400 spine arrow, and 4 inch feathers with full helicon twist. I loved the flight I got with my fixed blade muzzy BH's for hunting.
