I would go with a combination of the two- first I would go with the offset for hunting because I shoot a bisquit- but I would fletch them with the setting from number 2. I like the front of my blazer vane to be in the center of the arrow, and the offset to occur at the rear. That way it hits the bisquit straight to start, causing less wear and tear on the fletching.

Then again- if they are hitting where you aimed- your choice!!

I've never tried an offset? What the advantages/disadvantages? How do you set an offset on the blitz? Anyone have a pic of how they have their Blitz set? Thanks!

top cam has a center mark also the bottom has the same.
I set the top cam a tad less then 1/32" (right ) and the bottom cam a hairline to the left that will give you I think aleast 2 to 3 degress
I now change the cams top hairline to the right and the bottom hairline to the left i hear some 1 degree off set.
I have a few shaft that were fletched from the factory and I would say they are a straight fletch

The advantages of an offset are that you get the spin for tighter groups with minimal wind resistance (drag) which will 1) cause your arrow to fall off quicker and more drastically after 30-40 yards, and 2) less tearing of fletching if you are shooting a bisquit, and 3) straight fletching flies like a knuckle ball and the front of the arrow is allowed to steer more than it should. If I was shooting a drop away, I would try a rt. or left. helix and an offset and see which one grouped best.

Hittingguru: yep i am shooting a W bisquit on a martin saber
I tested both the litle more off set and the new fletch arrow i did yeaterday.I would say the more off set you do see what you said like a knuckle ball at 30 yards.The less off-set maybe 1 degree the arrow fly like a dime straight and fast.
