    Default offset vs helical

    How much does it matter when shooting target arrows? Which is preferred with a blade rest and does that matter?

    Most say it doesn't matter but I seem to shoot better with a straight or offset when I'm using a blade rest.

    I normally use a little less offset when shooting target ,depending on your class hunter or open also depends on the length of your vain???? I find 2" blazers with a slight offset normally does the trick with a 75 Grn tip we shootout to 320 fps no worries Mate!!!

    I use a slight off set for target and hunting. Never really saw a difference between the two style's but the off set has worked for me and I never mess with what works.

    I used an Old Timer jack knife, a straight stick, and some chicken feathers for years then I got old enough to get a job and got me some of them there store bought things.

    Them store bought things didnít help me hit a thing. I am still as bad as I have always been.
