  • Q:

    So I bought 50 parabolic feathers, three vanes times 12 arrows, figured I was good. Forgot that one out of every three is a different color. Is this a big deal? Why is the odd color important? I know the odd one goes to my left when I shoot, for some reason. But those are vanes, not feathers...yet. Is it important to have an odd color? Or can I re-fletch them with all he same color? Thanks!

      It is really a matter of preference. The odd color vane/feather is simply a
      visual point of reference for positioning your arrow correctly and
      consistently on the rest. I generally shoot a compound bow with the "nock"
      vane facing up whereas shooting my traditional the "nock"vane faces to the
      left away from the site window (for right-handed shooters).
      Notice when you nock an arrow with the colored vanes. The nock vane is
      facing outward, the other two vanes are on the top and bottom. The bottom
      vane is the only one making contact with the rest as the arrow is released.
      If you were to place the colored vane to the inside facing the rest, the
      vane would cause the arrow to kick out away from the bow as the arrow
      passes the site window.
      If you are shooting wood arrows and decide to you want fletching all of the
      same color, you could build the arrows with nocks that have position
      indicators on them. If you are using carbon, best bet is to look each time
      to ensure your nock vane is facing outwards.
      Hope this helps

      You do not need to have an odd colored feather. It is just personal preference. The odd color is meant to help identify which way to put the arrow on the string. Most nocks will have some sort of a locator to allow you to find the same side each time by feel.
