Re: WhichFletching is best?

I would give them as much rotation as possible. The Arizon EZ fletch should do that well with Blazer vanes. It's only a three degree rotation but it "cups" the vane so that it rotates better.

Resoning: I've had issues with the Muzzy heads being out of true. Giving them more spin should help to stabilize them better. Blazer vanes clear nearly every crossbow barrel channel. The EZ Fletch will give them maximum rotation.

Mike do you mean the newer EZ fletch made for crossbow bolts or just the orignal? I was thinking of getting one of the crossbow versions, but have an original layign around somewhere.

I do believe has been playing with the new EZ Fletch Bolt for crossbow arrows. It is designed for 2 inch Blazer vanes and puts helical on them instead of straight offset. It is getting a growing following and I am considering one for myself.

Used to be straight offset was the way to go because of the crossbows channel but the short vanes have changed the game.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

The original will work if it's the one designed for the aluminum shafts from years ago. The new one for crossbows is green and the one designed for the new vertical carbon shafts is blue.

I've been testing these fletchers for the vertical bows and crossbows. I will admit I was skeptical at first, but I'll say that I'm very impressed with the inital results. Impressed enough that I now have them for sale on the first page of my website.

A true helical will be too much for crossbows. The channel isn't wide enough for a helical. A two or three degree straight offset is about all you cn give them and still clear the barrel channel.

Your right and I have been calling an offset a helical,when in fact I'm using a offset.
Here is an EXAMPLE You can click on the photo to inlarge them.
