- Ok, given the current discussion, I myself have read the books, and heard
the talk about the leather/wood/parchment/groove style fletchings on
Leather & Wood. Are easy, because they are 'thick'. So you have a good
attachment surface (like that with the quill of a feather) to attach
with. I've seen bolts made this way. Look nice. Fly ok, but if the
target is a little soft and you penetrate!! Forget it. Bye-bye fletches.
I'd like to play around with the parchment, just because it sounds
neat. But it boggles my mind exactly how did they attach it?
The only thing that is coming to mind right now, is to bend it into a
'mini-L shape', just like a feather. But I'm concerned that it won't stay
that way. Just like bending paper in an L, it wants to open up a bit more.
So anyone know how they did this?

It's not like you have to push any of us very hard, though!
