I have been using trueflight feathers for years whether it be in a chopper or making flu flu feathers and it seems that every time I get them they keep getting worse. They are very inconsistent from the quill width to the feather height, (a problem I never had with these years ago). I have found that they vary in quality from one pack to the next and from barred to solid colors. I recently have ordered a pack of traditional barred feathers and was disgusted with the quality. I sometimes make flu flu feathers out of the full length feathers and the feather height on some isn't even 7/8 of an inch, very undesirable for flu flu feathers (I like at least 1 1/8"). Look, I realize that they are a natural product, and they say that they are commercial quality now, but isn't consistency and repeatability one of the key factors in accuracy? Then tell me how any archer would be satisfied with such low quality. Oh, I know, because there really aren't any other feather makers anymore. So I guess that all of us will have to just keep buying these feathers and hope that things might change. Who knows maybe you'll get a pack of good ones, but these days I have found this to be very rare. You might be better buying the pre cut shapes instead.

      Comments about TrueFlight Full Length Arrow Feathers:

      I use these feather for fletching both arrows for hunting and fletching Dart Ball Darts for the Lutheran Dart Ball League. They are very durable in both cases and very popular with the guys who through darts because they stand up longer than the original feathers on the darts. I have used them before and I will use them again. To get the feathers to the regulation dart ball dart shape I purchased a custom made Little Chopper from 3 Rivers and it works just great.with Dale's help I got the unit adjusted just right. I like the personal service I get when I have questions as to how to do. I recomend 3 Rivers Archery to anyone who needss quality archery supplies. Chuck Krueger.

      Read the "commercial grade" description!

            Comments about TrueFlight Full Length Arrow Feathers:

            I haven't bought feathers in quite some time. When I did, they were usually from 3Rivers. These used to be "Select" grade, and are now "Commercial" grade. There is a disclaimer, but if you aren't looking for it, you won't see it, or may just gloss over it if you don't know what it means (Like I did). My fault completely for not reading... But if you are expecting a nice high grade feather, you might be a little disappointed.

            Several of these barely make the minimum for cutting a single 5" feather. I didn't have much problems with the white, pink, or purple ones, but black was pretty bad. Lots of them were very narrow towards the back of the useable area, and I'm concerned they won't last long. With as much time as I put into hand dipping and cresting arrows, I was nervous glueing these narrow ones on some of my arrows. Time will tell.

            Colors aren't quite perfect. My black ones had some red areas in them. Odd. Not bad - like a millimeter sized thread of red in a black feather. Just odd to see that.

            Quality of the actual feathers was a bit disappointing as well. A few had areas that look mashed down, and some feathers kind of have a swirl look to it instead of being nice and smooth like previous select full length's I had bought.

            All in all, I'm not dissatisfied. But I am a bit disappointed. I fletched up a couple dozen arrows - pink and purple for my wife, and black and white for me. Keeping my fingers crossed that these perform and last as well as previous ones.

            I'd recommend them to a friend, but with the above disclaimers so they know what they are getting in advance.

                      The material itself is top shelf, consistent and in perfect condition. My only complaint is the cost of a product that is dumped by the truckload from every processing plant. That said I would still buy them again.

                        This product was arrived exactly as it was advertised. Perfect feather! I have been shooting for just short of a year and have been fletching my own arrows for about 6 months. All I did was cut the length of the feather to some old flu flu's that I had purchases and glued them on with some quick fletch. Leterally that is all I did and I can shoot these from my recurve and my 50lb compound. They have not fallen off or fraid. Very nice product and would suggest it to anyone of any skill level. *I added a picture of my flu flu's. The yellow one is an old one that I bought from the store. The blue ones are ones are the ones that I put on in less than 1 hour on my first try.

                          These feathers are top notch for sure. There is a huge variety of colors, but the quality doesn't change. I've used hundreds of these and they're always great.

                              I mentioned my experiment with making an elf arrow (a la Legolas) in another review (points). I am really pleased with the full length feathers that I am using for my project. One can get 2 ea. – 4" feathers out each full length one. The Autumn Brown Barred looks great as a INDEX feather with yellow for the hens. (FYI, the hens started out as standard 4" shield cut. The leading edge of the index was cut to match.) Wrapping the feathers with artificial sinew was easier than expected. I started with a ¼" strip of fletching tape wrapped around the shaft about a ¼" in front of the fletching to tag the sinew to the shaft and started winding the sinew with an occasional smear of glue. Twisting the sinew to make a thin tread when you get to the feathers makes it easier to get the barbs to heal (and they do heal quite nicely). A bit more glue at the end of the fletching and again at the nock and we are done. I need to get a feather burner and extra ribbons to make a consistent profile. Taping the feathers on both sides with painters tape, tracing the shape on that and cutting with scissors works, but not as accurately as I would like.

                              Conclusion: If I can do it first time out, anyone can.
