    Do competitive compound archers using small, low-profile vanes on a small-diameter arrow for outdoor distances typically fletch them straight, or do they use a small amount of offset or helical to create spin? If so, what is the best jig? I've been struggling getting vanes to adhere fully to the...

    Good Morning! I've got an Omega Original 35# @ 28" that I've had for a little over a year. I only shoot recreationally, but just ordered my dad his own bow from Keegan and will be able to "compete" against each other in the yard for fun. Right now I shoot Beman ICS bowhunters at 500 spine...

    I was given a bunch of old arrows, and was considering restoring them as a gift to the person. The arrows weren't stored well so most of the fetchings got mangled from being compressed. The problem is I can't find this style of fletching for sale anywhere. The fletchings were 3 inch long about...

    What do you all prefer and why? A lot of talk and videos I've seen say a 4 fletch is much more efficient at longer ranges and will stabilize the arrow much faster. Do you use a helical or just slight offset?

    Just got a Bitzenburger Jig, Right Helical. Ive read the angle should be no more then 3 degrees. How do you set the jig to 2 degrees? Is it just by eye, because all I see is just a "C" mark which I'm assuming is for center on both the top and bottom adjustment knobs.

    Good morning all. I am a 44 year old just returning to archery after a long break of working and raising kids. I have re-learned how to shoot on an '09 PSE Nova and a 2011 Bowtech Destroyer. In just a couple days after this crazy holiday, I am heading over to purchase my first new bow at my...
  7. Traditional Archery My process for cutting the arrow to size, chopping full-length feathers, fletching the shaft using a Bitzenburger, and gluing on a field tip. Please forgive the hand shakes - I was on some very powerful medicine fighting a flu that day! Any feedback...

    Just got a LCA Vanemaster pro jig. Definitely the nicest jig I've seen and very easy to use. My one question, and this is pry something I'm just overlooking, how to I set this up for particular vane placement based on where I want my cock vane? I tuned my bare shafts and indexed my nocks to...

    I currently shoot the old Fusion 2.1" Vanes, and do not know whether to purchase the Fusion II vanes or the Fusion X-II Vanes to re-fletch my arrows. Also considering switching to 3 inch vanes (only come in X-II version). I shoot gold tip arrows. The specs on the different versions are as...

    What's a good jig to do all 3 feathers at once? 4" feathers with right helical. Any and all info appreciated. I currently use a AAE jig that does one at a time but it doesn't really put the feather flat on the shafts. Looking for something better and will force the feathers base to be flat with...

    Hello Fellow Archers, I had a question why is my top fletching getting worn out so quickly, while other two fletching are intact? I just fletched these arrows a month back. Attached Images

    I am wanting to know the differences in Fletching sizes, how does this matter in the type of style your shooting whether indoor, outdoor, hunting what have you. I know I enjoy shooting Fletching as opposed to vanes from my recurve but like vanes shooting from my compound. what do you think?

    Hello everyone! I just purchased a Bitzenburger with a right helical clamp and I'm looking forward to doing some fletching for the first time. Last year I bought some Cabela's Stalker Xtreme 400 grain 55/70 and it's time for some new fletchings. I've read here a couple times about guys finding...
