Default Rest for helical fletching????

I shoot a Hoyt Striker II Bow with a release, 2314 Super Slam arrows and Zwickey broadheads. I want to use 5 inch feathers with a full helical fletch style. Are there any good rests out there that will provide a release shooter with adequate clearence for 5 inch helical fletch??? Help!!!

I used to use full helical on my arrows, but not any more. I've found out that you don't need all that helical to stabilize an arrow, even with a big Magnus I head. All a full helical does is slow down your arrow speed and make noise.

You will get great arrow flight with 5" feathers by using just enough helical to still allow room for the prongs on a standard prong type launcher rest.

ArthurP is correct.
As for the rest.If you are going to use full helical why not use a drop-away rest?
I was skeptical of the dropaways till I tried one,now I don't know if I'll ever go back to a conventional rest.
Check them out they may be the answer,Trophy Taker,MZE,ARC system, or convert a GK rest they work fantastic.

I use a Savage Derringer drop away rest and shot 4 deer with it this year. I used it in all conditions and it worked great for only $40.
