    I would like to hear peoples thoughts on feather size for 3d and field archery. In my case I shoot micro-diameter carbon shafts at lighter lighter draw weights, so I don't need to stabilize a ton of arrow mass. I typically used 4" shield cut feathers, but they seem like overkill and I'm...

    I shoot a locally made one peice bow 45 # made in the south west of australia where i live. About a year ago i switched to parabolic feathers becuse of reading they were faster and slightly quieter for hunting. I had 6 shafts with damadged feathers so i scaped them and glued some left over...

    I believe these are TrueFlight. 50 grey barred and 100 pink. Brand new. 5" parabolic right wing feathers. Changing my setup since I went to heavier broadheads and don't need these. $75 shipped priority for the lot plus some miscellaneous extra 4" and 5" right wing feathers.

    I like 4-inch shield cut feathers. But I'm curious if there is any real difference between Gateway and Trueflight brand. Gateway's seem to be less expensive. Maybe there is a reason?

    Sorry to ask so many questions but I cant find a simple answer. How do I choose what feathers to put on my arrows? Is there a better size for beginners? I was going to order some from Lacaster but there was like 5 pages of options. I fletch my own veins for my compound but have never done feathers.

    I am shooting a Tradtech Titan III with long recurve limbs, 35 lbs, 64 inch bow. I have a 29ish draw length. I am shooting Beman ICS Bowhunter 500s at 31 inches with 125 tip. I have a bear weather rest on the riser. With that said, for some reason I am tearing/wearing out the hen feather...

    I was eyeballing these "Ozark 4.5" Target Maxx" feathers at LAS for awhile now but was apprehensive because of a lack of reviews and in the name of "Nothing Ventured/Nothing Gained"?...I ordered a 100 (50ea Red Fire/Golden Ember) to fletch up 2 Doz. ICS Hunter Pro shafts I recently caught on...

    Watching LAS and some of the World videos online. Seems like vanes may be majority, but there were still a surprising amount of people shooting with feathers. Is there a consensus on what is ideal? Or is it really about understanding their individual strengths.
