I bought arrows and I am gonna put some 2" blazers on half of em for indoor league only.

Do you guys straight fletch those blazers or 4degree offset or what?
I only have right helical and straight clamps for my bitzy.

I use a full right helical. What you'll find is that they are so short almost all the vanes come out the same on the shaft no matter what clamp you use.

I had considered that but I did see 2" vanes on carbons fletched with the right-helical and I could tell.
As far as the flight.. not sure for my indoor league if it will make a diff or not..
Hence, I'm asking folks here.
My first inclination is to fletch'em straight. Indoor 20yd league only is the purpose here.

Those Carbon Express Maximas 350 I bought have the 2 inch Blazers Straight on them. Seem to work great with my whisker bisket. I just got my straight attachment for my fletching machine in the mail today. I think they shoot better with the 2 inch straight than my old arrows with the 4 inch right helical.

Rat, the blazers I had Sunday on mine were offset. As to what degree, I don't know.

Pay no attention to the shooter.:bangin:

I have them at a right helical and it is noticable. Shoot great through the WB and fly like a dream

I've got mine at pretty near straight, and two different shops fletched them that way without asking my prefference. In my ignorance, I thought it was because that's the proven and preferred method.
Um.. I think yours performed pretty dang well to say the least!

BTW.. I am fletching as we speak and the bitzenberger can be configured to do offsets
with the straight clamp.. :bangin:
I never bothered to read the directions or use the straight clamp.
Course I was shooting alums for so long that I was convinced that right helical was the way to go all these yrs.
I'll shootem tomorrow and let you know... got a slight offset going and they look great so far. :cheers:

I just got back from the archery shop where I bought some extra 2 inch Blazers. I'm going to re-fletch a few of my Carbon Express Maximas with helical just to compare them with the straight type. Since I shoot them through a whisker biscuit they may fly a bit different. Rat be sure to post real soon before I re-fletch mine. Wouldn't want to waste any time fooling around with it since you are going to do the work first. I don't think the helical in the 2 inch vanes will have as a dramatic effect as it would on the 4 inch vanes.

the shop I go to fletches them with a straight bitz jig with 2 degree of offset.

the arrow seem to fly great out of a drop away or a biscuit. out of a biscuit though, my wife shoots 1.5" blazers. I have not tried the 2", but I would not expect them to fly much different.

All of mine are offset, they work great. I would think they would also be great straight.

rat. I'm thinking Sunday was a fluke. The few groups since then aren't tight except for the 20yd pin.
But the worst part is now flat targets at known distances aren't fun anymore...:mad:
Well.. the blazers on my easton axis st's fletched on a very slight offset fly great.
Changing all my target arrows to this setup..
Seem faster too and Lord knows I can use all the help I can get in this category. :D
naw.. they do seem faster but who knows.. maybe I gain a few fps but its prolly negligible. Straight and narrow is what I want.

Yessir.. BTH has em that way and I believe that guy for sure.
Mine are only slightly offset.. functionally straight really.
Shoot away MM! Youre good to go.
