  • Q:

    Do these make any arrow fly correctly due to the large feathers? And Does the arrow have to be a certain length?
    Asked on 4/5/2014 by DS from PA

      A:

      The object of these feathers is to slow the arrow down quickly. The arrows do not have to be any certain length.

      They flew great. It doesn't matter the length

      A:

      I think a better question would be “could you pattern the flight of these arrows?” as the original question implies some of the more intricate work associate with fine tuning a dynamic spine on your arrows with your bow. With that said, I have been able to consistently pattern shots with a 500 spine Easton Axis arrow shot from a 40# recurve. My kids are also able to pattern with their Gold Tip arrows shot from a 20# recurve, which a shorter arrow, much shorter than mine at least. In any case you use this product in the most dynamic of all situations, a flying target at variable distances, for which they work wonderfully, to put heavy braking action on the flight of the arrows (about 70 yard recoveries from shooting at high angles).

      A:

      The large size is to allow you to wrap it in a spiral around the arrow.
      They fly true. They are meant to slow the arrow down rapidly in flight. No
      for the arrow having to be a certain length. I really liked these.

    I shoot right helical and they only sell left would this. Be alright for me or will it screw me up??? Could I hot birds with these to or should I buy the flu flu 4in fletch I own an Arizona ez fletch if that'd be alright with that jig

      A:

      Left helical would be fine. You should not notice any difference between right or left wing when shooting. Yes, you can use these for birds. To apply the feathers to the shaft, you do not use a fletching jig. Follow the link for installation instructions. http://www.3riversarchery.com/SpiralWrapFluFluInstructions.asp

      A:

      Left and right really don't matter with the spiral wrapped flu flu. FYI - I shorten the fletch to 3.5-4" and only use one feather. If I want contrasting colors, I shorten to 3". Long, thick spiral feathers give me too much drag!
      I think that a lot of folks are hung up on the R/L fletching vs. R/L handed shooting. I shoot left handed and have seen no difference between left and right helical fletching. Just don't mix left and right feathers on the same shaft.

  • Q:

    Me and my friend were looking at these I was wondering if I could use them for hunting and areial targets amd what would be better carbon or alluminom?? Thanks
    Asked on 2/24/2014 by Youngtradshooter from Schuyler nebraska

      A:

      These would be suitable for aerial shooting, as they will keep the arrow from traveling too far. As far as for hunting, for shots at short distances, such as for squirrels, they work well, again lessening the arrows travel in the event of a miss. After about 20 yards, it will slow down considerably. Arrow choice depends on preference; I only use carbon because of durability, but aluminum should work just fine. The low speed should somewhat save aluminum from bending from glancing hits on a target.

    How does the performance of these spiral wraps compare to the more conventional flu flu feathers? will the arrow be slower or faster?

      I think they fly a little faster. I get a couple extra yards killing range.
      You can trim them, a little at a time to get the range you need for the bow your using.     
      I've made a bunch for friends. Everybody likes them.
      They,re also quick to make. No jig.

      A:

      JaKbob95,
      I believe the spiral wrap flu flu will slow the arrow quicker than the
      traditional style flu flu. In the DVD onArial Archery
      <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99Od_n-EL-g>, Derrick Oxnam shows the
      difference in a big open field. The spirals slowed down much faster and
      didn't go as far.
      I don't know which is "better." It depends on what you want out of your
      flu flu. If I were squirrel hunting in tight woods, I might prefer the
      spirals to slow the arrow faster so they don't overshoot as far. If I
      were after pheasants or more open-country rabbits, I may want
      traditional flu flu's to get a little more speed and distance.

      I would say the spiral wraps slow the arrow down quicker when compared to convential flu-flu feathers.

      A:

      The spiral wrap flu flu feathers, at full length, slow the arrow down considerably faster than the conventional feathers, but the spiral wraps can be custom trimmed to make the arrow go faster and farther.

  • Q:

    Has anyone used these with cap wraps or arrow shaft wraps? Do you think I would still need to sand or skuff up the shaft surface with a brand new wrap. I would like to keep my arrows as bright as possible with a lot of contrast. PA has a lot of colors though out the seasons so it is tough to find a great color scheme that works year round.
    Thanks

      If you are using cap wraps then you will not need to sand or scuff the shaft. Just make sure to clean the surface well before putting the cap wrap on.

    How many of these does it take to fletch an arrow? Standard flu-flu is 4 feathers per shaft so does it just take 1 or 2 of these then?

      1 works well. You will have to use a clamp and start at the nock end wrap around and the clamp the bottom than glue after you have it in place let dry than take the clamps off. Look really nice if you use 2 in different color.

      I used two of them. They do slow the arrows down quickly, and make a lot of noise. I think if I use them again, I will only use one. But they do look nice with two different colors on them.

      I've just used two of these and got excellent results. Great for aerial targets but not so good for live game (like pheasants), as they slow quickly and travel no more than about 30/40 yards. Hope this helps.Later, Chris

      These are long... One feather wrapped as shown was enough for my son who
      shoots a 25lb recurve and 32lb long bow.
      Even then we'll probably trim the height a little because the arrows slow
      down very fast with just one.
      We wrapped some with two as described.
      Maybe it was due to the low draw weight, but we did not notice as much
      difference between the arrow wrapped with one and the arrows wrapped with

      I have them and they are pretty easy to make work though it's a bit of a process. Typically you'll use two per arrow. I'm not sure how a single would work but might be worth an experiment! Good luck and let me know what happens.

      You can shoot flu flu arrows off-the-knuckle, but it will wear them down faster than standard cut feathers as they are more bulky.

  • Q:

    In an answer to another question, Shawn noted that these fletchings are the same as regular full length fletchings but with less quill. Am I safe to assume that after I fletch my flu-flu's, I can use some of the remainder of my 100 pack to fletch arrows in the standard fashion?

      The feathers will be more prone to break and alignment may suffer, but yes, you could use them as a standard fletching.

      These work great off of an elevated rest or the shelf. About the only type of arrow rest that they might have a problem with would be a Wisker Biscuit.
