Re fletching plastic / rubber veins to feather fletching

I sold my compound bow a long time ago and just now I am looking at the arrows and wondering if it is worth while taking off the plastic / rubber fletching and putting on feathers.
I shot the arrows that have the plastic fletching on them from my recurve and they do "okay" but at 15 yards they plant in the target with a distinctive lean to the left.
The feather fetched arrows I use are Gold Tip 3555.
Use 125 gr field points in both arrow types.

The arrows are Beman 340's being launched from a Bear Grizzly #50 AMO 58. Target shooting only.

Part of me wants to do the re fletching just because I have the time to do it....


Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Why wouldn't you re-fletch with feathers? Shooting feathers is a MUST on recurve or LB IMHO.
