    Anyone out there have a favorite brand of feathers for target shooting? I bought my X7 Eclipse and have the quickspins on them, but I changed my mind and want the feathers. Anyone know what the most accurate/best ones out there are? Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Thanks!

    I don't do my own, but I believe my local shop uses Gateway. As far as feathers go, they seem good to me. :D

    Do most shops stock Gateways? Or do I need to order them from online? What size for my 2512's?

    Up until this year, all I shot was feathers. They are lighter than vanes, faster, and stabilize an arrow better than vanes. The only drawback, and the reason I'm not shooting them now is the fact they get wet and ain't worth a darn then.:frusty:

    and if your rest is off just a hair feathers will be more forgiving., They will stabilize fast.
    And because bunny does not use them lol.
