    What is your favorite type of flu-flu fletching and why? I'm looking to put together some arrows for playing around with aerial targets and need something that shoots pretty normal out to 15-20 yards and then slows down pretty fast after that. Common configurations are: 1 or 2 full length...

My current setup is a Fedora longbow 49# @ my 28" draw using GT Trad 5575s cut to 29 3/4" with 250 gr. points. #1...

    I talked to the guys at Trueflight the other day and they were kind enough to send me a sample pack including some feathers ground for spiral rap. I am doing up 3 flu flus now. I can't believ how easy it is and how good they look. Hopefully test them tomorrow.

    Let's see Mexico is closing all it's schools, and public events, thousands of illegal Mexicans cross the southern boarder every day, there is at least 150 dead in Mexico from this outbreak and thousands sick, and there is no cause for alarm?

    I used to shoot squirrels and birds around with flu flus, especially up in trees. However, out of my elevated rest (wire type flipper arm) it seems to tear off the feathers. I've only tried it a couple of times, but it tore feathers off both times. Any suggestions, or thoughts?
