I use feathers with about 1 degree right offset. Feathers will spin an arrow even if straight but I feel better with a slight twist.

I'm a recurve shooter , so the extra stabilizing of a helical fletch helps a lot .

I didn't vote because my fletchings are neither straight or helical.

Mine are classified as "offset." They're not straight, but they're not twisted enough to be helical.

You're pretty twisted , are you helical ?
