  1. Replace plastic vanes with feathers?

    General Archery Discussion
    I apologize if this has been asked before (I couldn't find any previous discussions), but I'm just now getting into archery and had a question about arrow fletching: I prefer eastern styles of shooting (arrow on right side of bow). I like shooting directly from my hand if possible or shooting...
  2. Best uses for fletching types?

    Traditional Archery
    Hi folks, I just got a Bitzenburger dial-o-fletch jig and am now looking at buying a feather chopper, specifically the 3rivers little chopper feather die cutter. It comes in RW, LW, and with attachments for all different types of fletching. I traditionally have used shield fletching, but only...
  3. Mixing Feather Brands

    Traditional Archery
    Would it make a huge difference in mixing feather brands? For example, using two AMG feathers and one Gateway feather. Even though they are all 4", the Gateway feather is slightly longer. Would having one slightly longer cock feather have a major impact on arrow flight? What are your thoughts?
  4. Glue for ends of fletches?

    Arrows & Strings
    What type of glue is good for the leading and trailing edges of fletches? Specifically feathers on aluminum. I use Super-glue to glue the feathers on, but it doesn't work well on the ends.

  9. Mathews Max Cam smoother than a Mathews DXT Cam?

    General Archery Discussion
    My main hunting bow is a Mathews DXT, which I love, and my back-up is an old 1995 Ultra Light, which was my first bow that I used for years. For fun I swapped out the letter cam and idler wheel on the Ultra Light with a Max cam & idler wheel. It's basically a 1/4lbs heavier Feather Max now. Same...

    I shoot a takedown recurve off the shelf, and the bottom fletching becomes tattered after a few weeks. Is there any way I can reduce the damage without getting a rest?
