  1. Arrows & Strings
    So i bought about 18 VAP jr 800 cc arrows at my local archery store. They came pre-fletched with 2" faux-plastic feathers. At the base of them was a piece of plastic (I assume to prevent them from catching?). Well needless to say within about 2 weeks all the plastic wrap at the base of the...

    Anyone have experience with multiple vane glues and which kind doesn't leave this residue below? These arrows done with the gorilla glue below. I use acetone to clean it off as good as I can but it just looks like amateur hour. TIA

    I’d like to think that arrows of same brand, spine etc would spin the same direction off a compound, d loop shot bow but wonder if anyone has experience to the contrary. Got a couple dozen arrows to fletch and I’ll prob check them all anyways. But thank you for the input and this great forum.

    I am thinking going to be doing a new set of arrows and looking into vanes to put on it. I want to do a low profile 4 fletch arrows. Not sure if I should do (2.7"L x 0.5" H) ones like the aae max stealth. Max pro which is (1.7" L x 0.46" H). Or like a combo of their hybrid ones. So 2 hybrid 1.85...

    I bought the zenith upgrade kit for my Bitzenburger Jig and when I go to spin the arrow there is a noticeable contact between the inside of the jig and the new nock receiver unit. This friction is causing my arrow to spin irregularly and I am getting random spacing on my fletches. I am thinking...

    Hi everyone, I've lurked for a while, just joined the group. I've gone through some older posts on EFOC/FOC and fletching. I was wondering if anyone had any recent or new info, as I'm about to start tinkering. I bought a set of Grizzly Stiks with the 650gr build with 200gr single bevel...
  7. Traditional Archery
    I've been trying to remove instant arrow glue on a 12 pack of carbon arrows that had vanes on them. I got the vanes off and glued feathers on the arrows. This is the the part that is frustrating. This was my first attempt at fletching arrows and the fletching jig (Bohning Pro Class Fletching...
  8. Traditional Archery
    Good Morning, I ordered an Omega Original and won't actually get it until the end of April. I am looking for appropriate arrows. I'll only be target shooting at roughly 10-30 yards max. The bow is going to be 62" long and 35# at 28". My actual draw is around 28.5". It was recommended that I...

  11. General Archery Discussion
    Hi guys, I am just about to pull the metaphorical trigger on starting to make my own arrows but I am having a hard time choosing if I should go with a right or left helical. After reading quite a few threads on here I get the general consensus that it doesn't really matter which one I choose. I...

    I realize that there have probably been a bunch of threads asking the same question, but I am wondering if there is a best 2" vane or close to 2" that you have found best stabilizes a fixed blade head. I am not trying to start a bashing thread, so please remember what works for one person may...
  13. Arrows & Strings
    Help Needed: Getting started with fletching arrows I have need to refletch a bunch of shafts, and plan/need to buy a bunch of new bare shafts as well. They're going to need fletching of course. I want to go feathers, as I shoot off the shelf of recurves (and the recurves I use an elevated...

  15. General Archery Discussion
    I have a bohning fletching jig that I am using and it is doing a great job. I have noticed that the vanes that I put on the arrows are closer to the nock end of the arrow than those done by the experts (Jerry at Southshore Archery). I have two sets of his that he produced for me and they are...

    I am fletching some Fatboy arrows but am unsure how far from the nock end of the arrow the fletching starts...would welcome any suggestions
  17. General Archery Discussion
    My little brother got some 22 inch "Hunter Dan" arrows for christmas to use on his Barnett Lil' Banshee (the older version), and has already broken the nocks on 4 out of the 6 arrows he has. I've never dealt with making carbon fiber arrows before, so I am getting really frustrated that I can't...

    What would you guys recommend to a newcomer to fletching? I shoot a Mathews Reezen with a rip cord rest. I currently am shooting easton bloodhunter arrows for 3-d and hunting. I plan on getting some gold tip arrows, then moving on to a 3-d set up with fatter arrows. Would I do left or right...
  19. Traditional Archery
    Attempting to make my own fletching with goose and turkey feathers. New to archery (3 mos.). Think I read somewhere that you need at least 5" for fletching with trad. Is this the standard? If so, why? Would 3 or 4" make a big difference?
  20. Arrows & Strings
    I am relatively new, but am thinking of fletching my own arrows. What do you use to fletch your arrows? Both materials, and tools to remove old and place new? Thanks, Terry
