I've fletched them up like that also. The blazers fly so true already that it really is hard to tell, but they sure do look cool!



Sorry I can't seem to remember how to insert the image.

I dont see what difference it would make. As the arrow spins you will still have the same amount of drag. Plus if you have a stong wind it should only hit one vane at a time regardless of the position on the arrow. I dont see it working any different....but who knows....I dont guess it hurts either.
