    Hi all,

    Well, hopefully my arrow parts arrive from Obsession Archery either tomorrow or Tuesday...and I need to ask you, which is more accurate: Right Helical or Right offset? I am doing this for my target bow, so i want to have the most accurate set-up possible.

    Is there any preference or advantage to either? Please let me know.

    Thanks!

    your using Quikspins? 1.5"??

    Blade rest or dropaway? from your signature it looks like drop away....

    you could go with either

    if your using a tm style rest then go with right offset, you wont need to worry about fletching clearance as much......

    They are 4" quickspins, and I am using the Matthews HDII fall-away rest.

    I don't have any actually, so I'm just going to take them in and have my local shop do them.

    for target use I would just get them offset. like Bunny said, if you decide to go away from the dropaway you'll have better vane clearance.

    I dont usually use helical fletch until I'm shooting fixed blade broadheads.

    Also, will I be able to glue my vanes directly to the X7 shaft, or will I need a wrap because of the aluminum?

    your useing 4" vanes for target
    if your gonna use vanes that long on a small dia shaft i would go either
    stright or as little off-set as possable.

    but on a drop away it really dont matter..

    depends on the shaft dia and the rest really..for a 4" vane.
    hope this helps:wave:

    well the quick spins are not really needed. 4 inch feathers for indoors offset. They will last forever shooting 3 or 5 spot. On my colbalts 1 1/2 years and the feathers are still like new.

    Okay, but I do have the quickspins, and I do have the X7's...I thought the Quickspins were the best way for me to have the most accurate arrows...do you still agree with the 4 degrees, or should I go less?

    ha bro

    depends on which X7 he's talkin about.
    ive got some..old blue easton alluminum X7's in 1913 that are as small dia as
    small carbons i shot indoor with.
    that have 1.5 inch vanes on them.
    it would be crazy to try and put 4inch vanes in, right heli. on them things..just saying..:noidea:
