Question:
Does it matter whether you get arrows with right or left helical? Is one better in a specific situation?

Answer:
It makes no difference whatsoever. Super slow motion videos produced by Easton Aluminum show that an arrow doesn't even begin to spin until it is well out of the bow. The only time the direction of helical makes a difference is when you are fletching your own arrows with feathers. Make sure the feathers you order have the same helical direction as the clamp on your fletching jig. For example, if your clamp is for right helical, make sure you order "right wing" feathers. Vanes are non-directional and can be used in either left or right helical clamps.
