    Default straight or helical?

    I always use straight fetching when shooting 3D.
    Going on a hunt now in august.
    Now for the question: should i use a Helical fetching on my arrows for hunting?
    im gonna use a mekanical broadhead by the way.

    thanks

    Helical can only help your broadhead flight. The only drawback to helical is some small loss of speed. At the very least I would use some helical even with a mechanical.

    Helical = the footbal theory. A spining arrow is more accurate. Best thing to do is fletch some up and see the differance.

    Thanks for the answers guys!

    i have decided to go with Nap quickspin vanes with just a little bit offset.
    Hope it works out allright?

    With the QS vane they recomend you go straight or Right helical only left messes them up somehow. When I do QS vanes I use my right helical clamp, but line the top and bottom center on the jig so they have very little offset. But that is just how I do QS, and they have preformed well.

    Tried out my new arrows yesterday.
    I just glued on the quickspins a little offset to the right
    And it's really working.
