  1. Helical Fletching, Whisper Biscuit, and nock alignment

    General Archery Discussion
    So I am trying to fletch my first arrows. I got a Goat Tuff Products GT Arrow Fletcher and am doing a right helical 2 degree with three fletches. My bow has a whisper biscuit and it seems like the fletching would be going through the black at the bottom if it just goes straight through. Does the...
  2. Grayling Fletching Jig

    General Archery Discussion
    Hey everybody! I just bought my first bow about a month ago and have since become engulfed in this sport/lifestyle. One thing that has started to intrigue me is building my own arrows. It seems like the bitzenburger jigs are a strong favorite across the board but I was wondering if anyone had...
  3. Drinking Straw Spin Vanes

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Hi, has anybody here tried this before? I was wondering if they will work? Its very cheap compared to spinwings or other spin vanes.
  4. Drinking Straw Spin Vanes

    General Archery Discussion
    I'm not sure if the image was properly uploaded. If you can see the pic, has anybody here tried this before? I was wondering if they will work? Its very cheap compared to spinwings, you can probably cut up 1000 pieces from $0.5 worth of straw.

  6. Fletching Arrows

    General Archery Discussion
    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.
  7. Arizona E-Z Fletch ... proof?

    General Archery Discussion
    The graphic on the home page of https://www.ezfletch.com/ and the write up at https://www.ezfletch.com/why-true-helical/ make some strong promises. Most interesting to me are the "flatter trajectory" (6 inches less drop at 100 yards) and tighter groupings. But in searching for independent...
  8. Right or Left Helical Feltching

    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 am planning on building some arrows for the first time and am running into an interesting dilemma. I want to give the Blazer vanes a 3 degree helical and was planning on using the Bohning Blazer Helix Fletching Jig. The Bohning site says that it is designed for .293" - .306" size. It seems...

    Arrows, Broadheads, Quivers and Arrow Components
    I have 3 helical vane clamps for the 6-arrow Jo Jan fletcher. These are new in wrappers. I will sell for $30 tyd which is a savings of $18. Or, I will trade for 3 straight clamps.

  14. Helical Blazer spin-up

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been lurking for some time, first time poster. I've been involved in archery for over 20 years, but I'm a recreational archer. I do archery for fun, not money or prizes. I finally bought a new bow a few weeks ago. The Hoyt Charger is one seriously accurate and fun bow for me. During the...

  16. Too much Helical on my Victory VAP's using Bohning Helix Jig

    General Archery Discussion
    As the title says...I fletched some Victory VAP's with my Bohning Helix Jig. I used 2" Blazer vanes like I always have on my Maxima Shafts. The problem is that the helical is extreme on these micro-diameter shafts. I feel like this is going to cause a lot more drag. Not to mention, when I stack...
  17. Anyone use the Arizona Mini Fletch for Blazers

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been using an Arizona EZ Fletch full size for my Blazer vanes. There's the new mini fletch for Blazers available. What do you guys think for those who use it? How does it affect arrow flight? The helical is more extreme than the full-sized arms.
  18. Whisker Biscuit and Fletchings

    Arrows & Strings
    So I know that you can be accurate at long ranges despite the major disturbance with the fletchings by the whisker biscuit (strangely), but I'm wondering if anyone knows or has learned through trial and error if the biscuit starts to really throw off accuracy if you have offset or helical...

  20. Anyone else love helical vanes?!

    General Archery Discussion
    I was shooting quick fletch wraps for the past 2 weeks and couldn't hit better than a 4" group from 40 yards... Did some reading and with my 125 grain Swhacker heads I switched to a blazer helical fletch job and now am hitting 1" groups no prob. So happy. Just a testimonial to helical vanes...
