  • Q:

    I'm new to buying fletching. If I buy feather fletching, does it automatically come with a adhesion, or is that a separate purchase?

      You will need to purchase fletching glue or fletching tape to adhere your feathers to your arrow shaft.

      A:

      Archer,Feather fletching does not come with its'own adhesion - depending on your arrow will require Duco cement ( great for wood), Bohning Fletchtite(great for aluminum, wood) and I believe 3Rivers has a good one suitable for carbon arrows. You will need a clamping means, jig, etc. Anyway good luck, making arrows gets addictive.

      A:

      Hello, ChrisThe weight of these feathers is a moot point as far as arrow flight is concerned, however, I used my scale which is pretty accurate - an old Martin scale, which weighed four feathers at 10 grains if that is any help - I'll let you do the math on an individual feather basis- my scale did not have integers for one feather, so I kept adding feathers until I got to 10 grains. Sorry, the best I could do.

    How do I go about getting the $5.05 price for feathers. I'm clicking on LW, 4", white, and a dozen and it's still saying $8.05 for the total. Which size/colors are available for the 5.05 price and how long is this discount available? Thanks

  • Q:

    I wanted to order 4" LW autumn barred feathers and filled out all my info ( size, wing, color, number) and proceeded to checkout.. It showed on my cart that it was ready to order if I finished checking out.. But, I noticed on the product description that only trad barred, fl-lime and red barred come in 4"LW barred. Do you have the autumn barred in 4" LW or just fl-lime, red and trad barred only? Thanks

      Yes, we do carry the 4" LW autumn brown barred feathers. However, it will probably just say brown barred and not autumn brown barred. It's the same color though.

      I believe when I ordered them, I just got the red barred - that was quite awhile ago so I am not up to date with any current changes or product availability. I still get my feathers from 3Rivers but usually ordering full length and making them my own size, shape and style, etc.

      Rex,
      The TrueFlight Shield cut Feathers are factory cut. They are very high quality and I use this particular shape in the 5" length on my personal arrows.
      If you were looking for Feathers to cut yourself, the True Fight Full Length Arrow Feathers are what you want. You can use a Feather Chopper or Feather Burner to cut your own.
      Hope this answers your question.

      If you order Shield cut feathers, that is what you will receive. The only feathers you have to cut yourself would be the full length feathers. You may wish to ensure you order the length of shield cut feather you want for your particular arrow, i.e 3"or 4"etc.

    What is the difference between left wing and right wing fletchings? Thanks, I need the answer for my school project.

      A:

      Rotation direction. Right wing spines the arrow clockwise when viewed from the back. There is several myth in my opinion. Right hand shooters should shot right wing. There is no scientific data to support this myth. Right wing feathers should be used on single beveled broad heads that cut in a clockwise rotation. Theoretically this makes sense. In practice once the broad head penetrates the additional spin induced by the feathers is so small it becomes undefined. Hope this helps

      The difference is literally the right or left wing feather from a turkey. This obviously does not apply to plastic vanes. I hope this answers your question.

      The only real difference is which wing of the bird the feather comes from.
      The two different wing feathers wil make the arrow spin in opposite
      directions when itstabilizes. This makes no difference to the shooter.

      I've been told that one comes from the left wing of the animal, and the
      other one from the right wing.

      Answered on 6/12/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Simple response, the picture of a goose in flight shows right wing and left wing performance in flight for lift and stability. Now when those wings are harvested for use on arrows, the right wing or left wing curvature will help the arrow spin right or left thus stabilizing the arrow in flight. Much like rifeling the barrel of a gun stabilizes a bullet. 
      In todays Modern archery with drop away arrow rests right wing or left wing do not make a decernable difference in arrow performance. Unless you are shooting a single bevel edged borad head and then the right or left bevel should match the feather right ot left for stability and accuracy. 
      This can be true with the Modern Fiberglass Longbows and Recurve Bows and non-Wood Arrows...
      Where does right wing or left wing make a difference? I believe from my experiences is in Primitive Bow and Arrow Making or shooting off ones hand (ergo: no arrow rest.)
      Hope this helps you.

      The difference is the left wing does come from the left side side of the bird same with the right wing. Left wing spins counter clock wise and right wing spins clock wise.

      A:

      There is no difference. It is a matter of preference. At one time it was
      believed righthanders should shoot right fletch, lefthanders shoot left
      fletch.Something to do with the way the arrow cleared the shelf. We now
      know there is so much movement (arrow paradox) it makes no difference.

      Answered on 6/12/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Simply put, left wing fletchings and right wing fletchings refers to feathers taken from a bird's left wing or right wing, respectively. Feathers are curved and it is this curvature that gives the bird lift when the wing is outstretched in flight. As air flows over the wing, the curvature causes there to be less air pressure above the wing than below the wing. The same phenomenon is what gives lift to airplane wings (see Bernoulli's principal). When the quill of the feather is cut to separate the vanes (that part of the feather used as arrow fletching) and the vane is attached to the shaft by the remnants of the split quill, the feather's curvature provides a lateral force on the arrow when the bow propels it through the air. Because of its orientation on the shaft, which is different from its natural alignment on the wing, it provides rotation rather than lift - same force but directed in different directions - horizontal on the arrow rather than upward on the wing. The curvature is such that right wing feathers will cause the arrow to rotate (spin) to the right (clockwise as viewed from the nock toward the point) and left wing feathers will cause the arrow to rotate to the left (counter clockwise as viewed from the nock toward the point). The curvature of the feathers acts like the rifles of a gun barrel that spin the bullet. The rotation improves the accuracy of the projectile. The curvature and the rotation it causes explain why all fletches on an arrow have to be from the same wing, i.e., all left wing or all right wing. Doesn't matter which one, just all the same. If they are from both left and right wings, the spin they promote will be opposing one another, making the arrow fly poorly.
      I hope this explanation helps. Good luck with your school project.

      A:

      There have been some past writings that suggest that right handed shooters should shoot left wing and that left handed shooters should shoot right wing. The theory behind this advice is that the arrow should spin away from the bow riser. Actually, it doesn't really matter and the choice is really a personal one. I currently have the remnants from two different sets of arrows in my back quiver. One set is fletched with left helical, the other with right helical. I really cannot tell any difference in how they fly or in how they are wearing. The one critical thing is that you do not mix left and right feathers on the same arrow.
      As the feather descriptions read, left wing feathers come from the left wing of a turkey and right wing feathers come from the right wing of a turkey. To tell the difference just look from the "back" of the feather to the front and see which side of the feather the smooth side is on.
