Fletching?

Postby Feral Donkey » Tue Oct 21, 2008 8:05 am

How much can I get away with not having? I'll shoot a bareshaft if you'll let me. Since there's no string rolling off the fingers, there's very little paradox. That means fletching crashes every shot. I'd like to not lose that itty bit of energy if at all possible. I'll rig up a drop-away if necessary. :lol:

Yeah, that's right! The rest is going to be a solid chunk of white teflon and everything. ;) I'm going balls out. This is going to be the rail car of the archery world. :lol:

Aaron, You'll be suprised at how well arrows fly out of the machine. ;)

I'm going to dip the shaft in a mixture of Amsoil transmision fluid and KY personal lubricant first. :lol:

Do you mean shooting with a release?..."Since there's no string rolling off the fingers, there's very little paradox"..

You talking cut-past center compound or recurve?

Yeah he's using a release. I want to cut this thing past as little as possible for strength. That joint where the sight window meets the shelf is the one main weak area in a riser.

You can always try low profile feathers or fur-fletch....
with little to no horizontal paradox, all you have to worry about is clearance for the fletch...
bareshaft as close as possible and fur-fletch will create drag without ANY interference..but no rotation of the arrow occurs..
(Good use for dead bunnies.. ;))

Just a few thoughts ...
