Re: [SCA-Archery] Digest Number 1402
is correct if you feathers are 4" log or longer or if you use 5 degree
or greater offset on either side of the shaft centerline. I use 2 3/4"
fletching with 2.5 degree offset each side of the centerline (5 degree
total). This gives me the balance and spin I want without adding excess
drag. I find few archers beginning fletching to be using arrows which
require that much correction and are looking for a low drag design. They
also tend to experiment a lot with angles of attachment and direction of
spin. Left or right spin require left or right helical clamps
respectively. Which is why I recommend a straight clamp to start and the
ability to add helicals.
