    Like Blazers - they are so short, evenm if you use a helical, it does not effect them much - go for it!

    If I remember correctly, a helical won't hurt them, but if your going to use one you shouldn't use a left helical. That would counter act them.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    X2 it because of the kicker- When I used QS vanes I set my jig straight (with the lines lined up) and got just a slight offset to the right and they flew fine- what jig are you useing? I use a Blits.

    You can use helical on shorter vanes but it can be a challenge to get complete adhesion on smaller diameter arrows.

    Try it out on a couple of arrows and see how it works out....

    I use Axis arrows for hunting and gave up on helical with Blazers. Helical might work with a longer 3" or 4" 'conventional' vane but I had a tough time with getting the Blazers to get a full adhesion...

    Give it a try...

    It's really all in how you set the jig up.

    Yep, your right.
    I still cannot get a good helical with a Blazer on an Axis....
    I just do a straight with about a 4 degree offset on those.

    Now, right helical with 4" feathers on Fatboys are a no brainer.... Even I can do that...

    Wink helical or stright

    I have used the 1 1/2" quick spins on fat boys. The first 6 arrows I did was with a moderately aggressive helical. I found at 20 yards they seemed to fly good however I practice off my front porch a lot of the time. The yardage there is 40 yards. When I shot at 40 yards I could hear the arrows fly throu the air. The next 6 fatboys were fletched stright with the same type 1 1/2" quick spins. Now at 40 yards I don't hear the arrows going throu the air. It seems to me that the arrow flight has more resistance if it is making a whistling noise than if it is not. I would fletch your arrows straight. And also I do like the quick spins.
