Default Wooden Arrows

I have decided to start making my own Popular or port oxfor cedar arrows. I have always used left hand helical fletch. I have one question though. I am using grizzly broadheads on my new arrows and I read somewhere that a right hand helical is recomended with them. Also what is the difference between right wing and left wing feathers? I honesty have always had my arrows fletched by someone else just to my standards. Also I am going with 23/64 shafts. I love traditional hunting but I know there is vast more experience on this forum.

centxrecurve, yes it is important to use the appropriate wind feather for the single bevel broadhead. Helps the arrow spin and straighten out quickly. I would reccomend,for hunting this year to use the arrows you already had made. Then when not harvesting game, go ahead and make your own. There are millions of things that you can do to make and decorate an arrow. Typically, a person will make a few dozen before really get the knack and get it down all the way. It is a blast, very relaxing and rewarding, one of the things I love doing at the end of the season, is to sit inside and fletch up shafts and watch television.

Oh definately. I have a dozen gold tips left I hunt with but do not like the sound they make in the quiver and not impressed with performance. I know carbons are supposed to be good but I have tried several brands and these are by far the best I have tried just dont likem. I am hunting with left hand helical fletch and mangus 125 gr. heads. I wish the heads were heavier just could not find any heavier around here locally.
