length of fletching

I would like to know what length of fletching
is being used by everyone for your crossbows?
I read somewhere that anything under 22" will not
stabilize with fletching under 5"
I use 150gr muzzy crosskill fixed broadhead.

I use 2" blazers with a helical fletch on them and have found them to stabilize very well. I use the Arizona EZ Fletch bolt to fletch them.

Re: length of fletching

I am currently using two inch Blazers. Have shot 3 inch Norways as well in addition to typical factory 4 and 5 inch stuff.

As long as you front of center is towards the 17% and over range, short vanes work extremely well.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: length of fletching

I like 2 inch Blazers fletched in the Arizona and 2 inch Fusions fletched in the Jo-Jan with 3 degree right offset. Some bows with a narrow barrel groove will need the 3 inch Fusions or the 2.88 inch Vane-Tec vanes. I prefer the Vane-Tec.
