Wanting to start fletching my own arrows and noticed how good the ones with helical fly on other channels I watch. However just about all of those guys use a drop a way rest. Curious with my current setup(whisker biscuit) will that cause me issues?
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...
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...
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.
i would like to know the results of someone shooting compound fita outdoor with helical vanes?
do they get a good result at 50 meters? is 2" helical to much for vanes less than 2" for outdoor Fita ?
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.
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...
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...
Like new Bohning Helix Tower Jig. It comes with 5 center posts for: x-bolt, pin nock, f-nock, a-nock, and std carbon. $50 shipped.
Bohning Blazer Helix Fletching Jig. Comes with helical and straight clamps. $40 shipped.
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. They were out of the straight clamp set-ups when I ordered, so I bought 3 straight clamps from Amazon. I need 3 more.
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.
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...
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.
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...
