Guys, I realized that I had a tear in my fletchings both of them one was in the back like the glue came off from arrow to fletching, and the other was torn about halfway on one fletching..... Is this enough to throw your arrows off up to 6 inches at 20 yards????? And also how to I refletch these arrows to shoot the same, or do I have to re-nocktune them?

I know I'm an idiot for not noticing it sooner

Will make noise, and reduce accuracy.

I put a lot of arrows through my fletches. I use the 2" QS's so there's a lot of fletch to hit. I wouldn't shoot groups, but I mostly shoot at 40+ yards so I like to see how I'm shooting, and groups are fun. Nothing makes me more accurate than having some nice fletches to shoot at.:wink: Anyway, sometimes I keep using those arrows with a torn fletch, but if they start to wander away from the bullseye....I replace the torn one immediately.

Are they feathers or vanes? My experiance is that with vanes it hurts accuracy a bit, but with beat up feathers it isn't nearly as bad.

Last year my "go to" hunting arrow had a torn blazer. Never refletched it because it always found its mark, even with BHs.

Ive had blazers with slight tears and they shot fine. If it is torn where it attaches the shaft then they fly like crap.

In my experience, you can just notch out the vane with some scissors and it'll quit fluttering and won't affect accuracy. That's great for practice arrows. Hunting arrows...I'd replace them, personally.

Agreed. I'm starting to think about going to feathers as the vanes I've been shooting get rippled or cut during practice and then they don't shoot worth a darn. Feathers would keep working.
