Fletching test

I thought this subject is often referred to by some of you guys as to what to fletch with and what's better, feathers or FOBS and or Blazers. They all do the job but when compared there are some differences. I hope you find this interesting like I did.

Awesome Rowdy - thanks!

Not many surprises there. Heavier fletchings are slower and drop more...short and tall vanes do pretty good for field points, but possibly not the best choice for broadheads...etc.

What I was really interested in however was a controlled test on down range accuracy with broadheads. Fortunately, they're working on it and say the revised report will be out soon - can't wait. Great stuff!

Thanks again.
