Does anyone use Gateway feathers, and if so how do you like them? In my limited arrow building experience I've only used Trueflights; however, I had the opportunity to buy a 100 pack of Gateways (in my color, cut, and length) for $20 and couldn't pass it up. I'm hoping they're decent.

Ive never had an issue with them. The base is a little thicker than trueflight but they stick fine, fly fine, hold up fine and serve my purpose.

No issues.

The base is thicker than I like but a straight clamp and a few passes on some sandpaper will cure that.

They are fine.

Their current production is very good to excellent. In my opinion when they started up they were a little rough. I quit using them, but went back a couple of years ago, mostly because of price and colors I wanted, and was pleasantly surprised. Last winter I glued up 200 feathers from a couple of different purchases and distributors with zero complaints. Trueflight may still be the gold standard, but my arrows cannot tell the difference. Shoot and enjoy them!
