    Just did a post under the Beginners Thread and now it's got me thinking. I've always used a Rt helical fletch with my old bows because of the older style broadheads. Even tho' I shoot all year around I'm strictly a hunter style person. I don't shoot any 3D or Compo. My new bow has a drop-away rest and now I'm wondering if I should try Straight or a slight offset. I'm using (or will be) Slick Trick magnums. I do my own fletching but don't have the clamps for the others. Would it be worthwhile buying them. I'm using the 2" Blazer vanes and there doesn't seem too much helical anyway.:noidea:

    I use 28" Easton Axis arrows, 100gr Spitfires and 2" Blazers at around a 3 degree offset and they shoot/group excellent.

    I haven't shot anything but a straight fletch with a 2-3 degree offset for years. I am sure you will have no problems transitioning to a straight fletching and getting your broadheads to fly. :peace:
