fletchings

  1. General Archery Discussion
    Hello! Just wondering how some people here remove fletchings off arrows. From what I’ve seen, most people use things like potato peelers or linoleum knives to cut the vanes off and then they use sand paper to smooth it out I think. Just looking for some pointers, Thanks!

    I’m getting ready to fletch some arrows with AAE Hybrid 23s and I’ve found that I really like these vanes from past times that I’ve fletched arrows. But this time, I’m wanting to see what people find as the optimal distance from end of shaft. Also does length of vane make a difference for how...

    Hey guys I'm looking to change the fetching on my arrows due to mine getting pretty worn out. Are there any things that I should look for when I choose new ones? Are there different weights? Is there any thing I should stay away from? I shoot primarily 3D and target at the moment but will be...

    New XBow user 20" bolts general question... how2 know what kind of bolts? fletching? Maybe this is a silly question. With archery you have different spines and there are handy charts telling you how to figure out which arrows to use for your setup. I haven't found anything like that for...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    For the purpose of this thread, talking about indoor short distance recurve archery. The purpose of the vane is to cause drag to help straighten up the arrow in flight. In fact when you tune the bow you use a bare shaft to test how well your bow is tuned... So if a bare shaft will group with a...

    Hi all, Quick question for you guys. Due to practicing nearly everyday I have torn/punctured most of my fletchings on my arrows. I was looking at buying some NAP QuickFletch, and this is where my question comes into play. If I change my fletchings will that change the flight of my arrows? Thanks

  16. General Archery Discussion
    I mean, I've heard of people doing four fletchings, but five? Why? I saw a picture on the social networking site "Instagram" of a guy who had five blazer vanes on one arrow. If I could get my iPod to work right I could attach the picture, but alas technology has the better of me.
  17. Arrows & Strings
