justshoot said:Plainsman, for indoor I feel the 4 inch feather is a much
better choice.. since you're shooting at a known 20 yd
or so distance, the feather drag doesn't become an issue.
But,,,, it weighs much less than a 4 inch vane set up. Feathers
allow for a greater FOC and helps weaken the
spine of the larger shafts that are more deisrable for
A 4" feather setup would have similar FOC and spine
as a 1 3/4" vane setup but would offer better guidance
indoors with the larger feather.. and if the release wasn't
perfect, it would be a little more forgiving at launch..
some of the previous posts compared 4" feathers and
4" vanes.. this is really not a proper comparison since
feathers weigh much less and will cause the foc to
be greater and spine to be weaker..it's difficult to
get proper foc and spine with a large shaft aluminum
arrow shooting a 50 lb indoor bow with 4 inch vanes..
Now if you're a he-man and use a 70 lb indoor bow,
it's not an issue.. I must use feathers indoors for
my lower poundage shooting with large aluminums..
