You guys that shoot 4 fletch arrows do you use 90 degrees or 75/105 ?

Always 75x 105for about 15 years. Very bright color feathers. Never tried [email protected]

75x105 for 50+ years

I use 4x90. My bows generally have narrow, radiused shelves so clearance has never been an issue for me. No shelf wear or fletching wear.

I have used 60x120s, that Kelly P. is a big fan of. I liked them better than 4x90s, but had one bow that pitched a fit with them and I was too lazy, I guess, to work it out and went back to the 4x90s.

I've tried both and never found any difference in the 2.

I just made some 3” 4 fletch 90* and they are flying so well out of my bows. I shot them on a very windy day and they still performed well. Less shelf contact and much quieter too. Can’t find a reason to revert back to 4” 3 fletched. YRMV.

Those are pretty arrows there Stuart

I just 4-fletched half a dozen at 90 degrees a few weeks ago. I went smaller on the feathers though, 2.5" instead of 4" like when I 3 fletch. They shoot fantastically well, probably better than my 3x4" arrows with the same shaft.

I got lazy when I burned them. Shapes are a little wonky, but I will shoot them for now and redo them later on a rainy day.

With the 75x105, how do you get the 75 side to face the bow instead of up and down? I have the Bitz fletcher. Been doing the 60x120 fine but somehow rotating the 75x105 eludes me.

I used 75 105 during a foray into compounds for cable clearance...this in the 70's. I prefer 90° for my sticks.
