Default Pictures of Blazers helical fletched

Does anyone have pictures or could take pictures of Blazer vanes that are fletched with a helical? I am having a hard time trying to fletch these vanes with a helical.

I've got tons of pictures. That is all I use with blazers is hellical. PM me withyour email address and I will send over a few.

This last set of blazer vanes, I put on some nasty hellical. Even with my buddies slow motion camera, the arrow is a blurr because it is rotating so fast.

When Blazers are fletched helical, it is harder to see than when you are using a 4 or 5 inch vein. You can see a slight spiral in them, and front of the fletch is about the thickness of a nickel off line with the rear. I can't get mine fletched with any more offset without losing full contact with the arrow shaft.

Same here Roskoe, My jig will only allow full off-set at best. However, it does seem to work just fine and I get BH flight.

I tried to fletch mine helical but wasn't able to keep full contact of the Blazer with the shaft. I ended up just doing them 2 degrees offset.

The arrows with the yellow wraps have blazers fletched with helical. I have been doing them this way for about 3 years and have no issues with full contact with the shaft.

That's about the same degree of offset I have been using with good results. The left edge of the front of the Blazer is about even with the right edge of the back. BTW - nice looking wraps.

There is a formulae to figure degree of offset. Something like: amount of offset in inches X length of fletch in inches X 45 = degrees of offset. So if you had the offset at .040 and you were using 2" blazers, the offset would be 3.6 degrees.
