I have been out of archery for about 20 years since I was 18. I used to have arrows with fletching that was like plastic feathers. Don't know how you describe it but the fletching would bend almost like a real feather. I got my kids a youth set and some I think 26"-28" arrows w/ it. They had these plastic fletching on them. When they shoot, the arrow kicks off to one side for the first 20 feet or so (about the distance to the target). They were at cub scout camp and used inexpensive wood arrows w/ the flexable feather fletching on them and they did not do this. Here is a link to the archery set I got them. http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=8919 Where can I get youth arrows w/ the fletching I want? Or should I rip the fletching off and put on my own? (I saw what I wanted at the local BassPro store).
