I should have been on my way to Fletching hours since.
Noon found them at Leicester, and three days later they rode into the baronial camp at Fletching.
There are several qualities essential in good hunting arrows: straightness; uniform spine (along the length as well as around the shaft); a well-aligned broadhead; consistent weight; a strong, well-fitting nock; and perfect fletching
Another added bonus to increased front-of-center (FOC) weight is this: With the center mass more forward, the arrow's fletching
has an improved leverage effect.
helical also can translate into improved accuracy, as faster rotation promotes added stability.
We like to argue whether vanes are better than feathers, whether helical is better than straight and whether five-inch fletching
is better than four-inch fletching
The arrow needs to be just high enough to allow the fletching
to clear the bow's shelf.
With the micro-diameter, six-vane Helios[TM] fletching
and nock system from Nockturnal, your arrows will stabilize faster in flight because they will spin 10 times faster than those fletched with conventional vanes.
Of course, if you're going to build your own arrows, you'll need a fletching
The packs of five-inch vanes in my drawers reminded me that giant fletching
was almost mandatory to control oversized or misaligned broadheads.
These combination packs are perfect for fletching
six beautiful arrows and are available in a variety of attractive barred and solid-color combinations.
Prior to our girls' arrival, meyer thought twice about devoting a few hours to cutting, squaring, wrapping, and fletching
a dozen arrows.
