I like 2 inch blazers for hunting and true flight feathers for my targets arrows both done in a right helical. I just bought a pack of bohning x vanes in hot pink for my target arrows, but haven't tried them yet.
Looks like some new vanes and a helical CARBON fletching jig for the spring practice.
Thanks for the help fellas.
I even used my computer's spread sheet to come up with some carbon arrows to pick first. Came up with a unit cost. What choices!!!!! Think I'll pick up 6 carbon arrows, and then pick out a different 6 carbon arrows later.
I remember learning how to do spread sheets. I was long out of school, and I used a written reloading book I kept, for my first learning experience. lordy, did I mess up the first one page sort. The first time doing anything is easily fouled up.
It's both for change and the fact so few archers are now using aluminum arrows. My last jig maker says they sell about 95% of their new jigs to carbon arrow users.
I'm near to the last rose of summer; especially in using any carbon arrows, at all.
i recently switched from 4" feathers to the blazer vanes...good choice on my part. lot better groups and no need to worry about feathers getting messed up from getting hit. i refletch also and taking the base of feathers off the shaft was insanley time consuming and frustrating. havent had a blazer come off yet.
