Question on helical for fletching

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am shooting a Right handed hybrid longbow and i have mixed reviews on what helical i need to use. the local shop said i need to shoot left helical because of the arrow leaving the shelf on the left, which kind of makes sense. however when i look for fletchings and jigs it is mostly Right helical. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks guys!

Nock Angle with Helical Feathers

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

First of all. Happy New Years and Thanks for all the previous advice posted on my Arrow questions. I am using Carbon Express II 800 with 5" Helical Feathers. They seem to be spined well on the Samick Sage 30# at my 29.5" draw length. One thing I noticed is the calf hair rest is getting chewed up a bit on the shelf. My nocks are set up so that the cock feather is perpendicular to the riser facing out with reference to the rear of the feather. Or if looking at the back of the arrow the nock is vertical with the string (obviously) and the edge of the rear shield feather is exactly 90 degrees to the nock. This is what i have read is correct for off the shelf. But, With the Helical fletching, the leading edge of the feather is several degrees further left or counter clockwise on the shaft. It is apparently striking the hair rest on the shelf and chewing it up a bit. My question is should I rotate the nock a bit and trade off between the leading and trailing edges of the LW Feather to avoid this? Maybe a straight Fletch would be better on these thin carbon shafts anyway but I have to deal with these arrows I have. Another thing i need to mention is that I did not completely cover the entire shelf with the calf hair plate. I cheated and cut it in half and placed it on the apex of the shelf where the shaft would contact it. Is this not correct? I have also seen some hair rests and strike plates set up with a small gap between them for the fletching to move through? Is this effective? The good news is, it is New Years Eve and I just shot my first 75 arrows at 7 yards. No major problems, I only missed the entire bag once, (the wife will find that hole in the extra fold out table next gathering), I had some 3" groups so apparently I did remember something from my childhood and that Bear Fiberglass Recurve I got when I was 7 years old? It was very Cool. I was so excited to shoot that I forgot to put a nock on my string so i just placed arrows perpendicular to the shelf. Who cares when you shoot your first arrow at six feet away from a great big $ 50 dollar yellow bag with a hornet on it, and you have really now idea where the arrow is going to go. Yep, 7 years old again…. Priceless.

Bitz Helical vs Straight clamp?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I opened up my Bitz straight jig to fletch up some vanes for some of my buddies and noticed that the Straight clamp doesn’t have the metal plate that the magnets stick to like the Right or Left Helical clamps do. Is this normal or do I need to email Bitz and get a new plate?

Whisker biscuit and helical vanes

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Is it okay to shoot helical vanes through a whisker biscuit? I’m thinking about making the switch to this rest since all I do is hunt. I’m not really set on the whisker biscuit but I want to get away from drop away arrow rests.

Vanes helical right or left

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Was reading on the back of an old rocket broad head pack that said the blades were set at a left helical. I shoot a 3* right helical blazer will this effect it much? Should switching to left helical be more beneficial ? Does anyone shoot a left helical? Any difference from right ? What jig can fletch them left

What’s your preffered helical on your arrows?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Over the last couple days I fletched up some arrows with straight fletch on my piledrivers and six degrees on my GT kinetic hunters and was getting some contact with my qad so I fletched some of the piledrivers with six degree helical and seems to be no contact. Anyone ever had any issues with using six degrees and what do prefer?

helical vs straight fletching showing tuning issue?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi All,

Sorry if this has been covered already. I did a search and didn’t seem to find I covered.

A bought a new bow a month ago and a ½ dozen arrows to get started with it. I liked how
thing were working so I ordered a full dozen more arrows.

This is my setup:

Darton 3800, 51lbs, 29”, QAD rest.

½ dozen arrows: Beaman ICS Hunter Pro, 29” – shaft length, blazers with slight helical.
1 dozen arrows: Beaman ICS Hunter Pro, 29” – shaft length, blazers with straight fletch.

The 2 groups of arrows are within 2mm length and the average weight (380gr) is within 0.3gr
between the 2 groups.

My issue is yesterday when I was out shooting (60yds) was I getting 2 different groups between
the 2 batches of arrows. The ones with a slight helical were centered in the target. The straight
fletched ones were about a foot low.

I didn’t have time to play with my rest but that is my thought.

A slight tuning issue?

Thanks,

Bob

Left or right helical?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I shoot left handed off the shelf. All of my arrows are fletched with 4" feathers and are right helical.
Should I be shooting Left helical? Would it make a difference?
Thanks
