I am new to this forum. So much information and so little time so I will ask.
I just bought a used bow with wheels. I haven't shot a bow in 50 years. Bows didn't have wheels back then.
It come with a dozen arrows but the fletching is in bad shape.
Are feathers still used or has plastic taken over?
I inted to practise and hunt. No target competition.
How do I get the old plastic vanes off the aluminum arrows?
I will be using a whisker biscuit.
I used 4 feathers way back when. Has that gone by the wayside?
Any advice welcome. I know I have a 50 years of catching up to do so will have lot of future questions.

Welcome to the forum...and welcome back to archery...
Like Hoosier said plastic vanes are the standard now...but you can still get feathers...with a Wiskerbiscuit use plastic, the feathers don't like it...Blazer vanes seem to work best w/ a Biscuit...3 or 4 vanes is up to you...with the biscuit you don't want a vane straight down(in the black bristles) so just turn your nock accordingly...
Any questions at all...just ask away we're here to help...
