Offset fletching

Got questions about archery supplies, or want to write a review on some archery equipment...this is the place.

Offset fletching

Postby Keef on Wed Feb 04, 2009 1:23 am

I wondered if any of you guys have tried offsetting your fletching. An article in Bow & Arrow Hunting discusses it. You put the first vane on, then the next one is 1/8 to 1/4" further forward toward the tip. The third one is another 1/8-1/4" toward the tip. They swear it helps stability a lot. I'm going to try it but wondered if someone has done it.

We did it at the shop....shot straight through the biscuit and bullet holed.....shot in the range some....no noticeable difference at 20 yards from other fletching.

I think it kinda falls inline with "supertuning" a bow......how many shooters are actually supertuned themselves ;)

We have at least one on this web site who is supertuned. :D When you shoot like me, you need every little bit of help you can get.

I had my Mathews Crackerized. I think he did a good job.

I"m curious as to the speed you get. If I remember correctly you shoot poundage about like me, 50+lb.
