What kind of arrows/fletching do you use and prefer, because I like the rest, but recently I have been noticing that it is having an impact on the fletching -- it's getting wrinkled...any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

After wrinkling up the factory fletching on my ICS Hunters when I installed my WB, I fletched some with blazers, and some with feathers. Both are doing fine, but the Blazers slow the arrow more than the feathers through the biscuit. I've chrono'd both. I'm sure it's because the feathers will push down flat against the shaft, and the Blazers have to push through the biscuit.

Do a search on "whisker" or "biscuit"; there are oodles of threads on this subject.

I, along with others, like VaneTec vanes with the WB. Another popular choice is the previously mentioned Blazer.

Easton Axis arrows with Blazers. I think the Blazers are a stiffer material and hold up better thru the whiskers.

Use feathers not plastic, WB will wrinkle plastic

if you use feathers they come out looking like you mowed your yard with a bent blade, but they still fly great even after you shave them down while shooting broadheads :shade:

You know, I've seen that yard!

Great analogy :smile:

I have used the Whisker Biscuit since they first came out and had problems with the factory vanes, after swithching to AAE Speed Flytes I do not have any more curling. The Speed Flyte are a little costly so the next time I reflech I think it will be with Blazers or Vane Tech.

I use GoldTip arrows with Flex-fletch FLP vanes with an aluminum sized hole in the WB. Zero speed loss and the vanes stay just perfect. :shade:
The difference has got to be the hole size. I shot three with Blazers, and three with feathers, and the blazers were a little over 3fps slower, not that 3fps is really worth discussing. I plan to hunt with the Blazers.

Blazers hold up well for me, just don't use quick spins, they wrinkle up in a hurry.
