Thread: Fletching question

  1. #1

    Fletching question

    Just picked up 6 of the short 3 fletch arrows to try out over my original longer fletching. My older arrows flew straight and could keep groups in the 3" area at 35 yards. With these new ones I am all over the place, haven't noticed fish tailing, just can't get a group. I shoot 6 of the older arrows a back to a nice group. The arrows are cut to the same length and for the same poundage I am shooting, both are just standard straight 3 fletch. I'm shooting a PSE set at 65 pounds with a wisker biscuit rest. Maybe just overlooking something but it's getting frustrating. Any input please! Thanks

    The taller stiff vanes might be hitting the rest. I think they make a bigger whisker biscuit rest for them.
    I'm still a fan of the shorter profile longer vanes. They work great for me, so I'm not changing.
    Don't ever let the truth get in the way, of a good story

    Along with what MikeF said, if the shorter vaned arrows have a real aggressive helical on them, in such a short distance, as they go through the whisker biscuit they may be causing the erratic flight.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    I think I have found 2 problems, the vanes are hitting the rest and the hole in the wisker biscuit Is about a 1/8" in diameter larger than the arrow allowing for a little more slop. My older arrows are just a smut larger in dia so they fit a little tighter. Time to get some more arrows, going back to the long vanes. Thanks for the help everyone.
