I have no problems with either outfit. I tend to prefer the base grind that Trueflight uses. I think they're a bit more consistent than Gateway's. But both are a heckuvalot better than vanes.

Yup, same as Arthur says. It's just a little easier to fletch the trueflights. My current favorite feather is the trueflight maxifletch.

I regrind ALL my feathers now- it does take a while to do, but I can get the bases square and thin. I take them down to around 1/64" or so.

With the best will in the world neither Truflight nor Gateway can trim (natural, organic, inconsistent) feathers perfectly square and thin, and still sell them to us at a price we can afford.
