Is that a left/right movement?
I wanted to post a video but could not. So took pictures of the two movements. It does look that way on bottom picture to me also Don. Top looks like it was up and down.

Re: Arrow fish tailing

Thanks for more replies. I know wind could be a factor, but in these pictures, wind not the problem. I have video of me shooting my M355, and I have never saw anything like this on my shots. THESE PICTURES ARE NOT MINE. FROM VIDEO ON YT. Here are two pictures that show two different movements of the...

Re: Arrow fish tailing

An arrow that flies with minimal spiraling will have better penetration. If the spiral is too big, it will hit all over the place at different distances. 2 o'clock at one distance, 7 o'clock at another. If it is weak spined and the fletching can't stabilize it quickly enough, the arrow will be flex...

Re: Arrow fish tailing

Thanks for the replies so far. Forgot to say the fletchings on this fellows arrows are 4" and original or original replacement arrows of Excalibur. This guy does not do or make any changes from what Excalibur says to use. He shoots rage expandables now, used to shoot the X-Acts, but last year switch...

Arrow fish tailing pictures on page 2

Ok, question is, I have seen some videos of shots at live deer, and with the lighted nock, the arrow is showing it is fish tailing for first few yards after being shot. Now the fellow takes the deer, but to me there is a problem with his arrow. IMO, I don't think it should be fish tailing after leav...

Will do. I emailed him today he's they will work for the ID (.306 ) but not sure about the OD and I don't have a caliper here to check. I believe it is 22/64 what ever that works out to, he's going to see and get ahold of me Monday. Thanks guys

Re: Will this work

I'm trying to add a little weight to the front of my xx75 2219 camo hunter shafts, will these inserts work for these shafts or is there another way of doing this without having to switch to heavier broadheads. https://ethicsarchery.com/collections/clearance/products/ethics-archery-305-static-insert...

Re: The broad broadhead discussion

"My preference is to keep things simple, and tend towards some overkill to maximize my chances when things do not go "perfectly". The above quote from Keith's above post is a good thing to remember when building arrows. Build arrows that will work on thick meat, heavy boned, thick skinned animals,an...

Re: Makin bolts

X2 Also bolts had no fletching. Why aluminum? Some inserts and nocks that fit carbon arrows, do not work in aluminum arrows. Most use E-Z Bolt fletcher, with a hard helical on vanes. If shots are 40 yds. and less the 2" vanes work great. If shooting 40 yds. and out 3-4" fletching will do you better....

Fletching

What distance are your vanes from the end of the arrow shaft?

Would there be any reason, not to be as far back as you can get?

Since there move on stopping the sales of guns and downing the NRA stand, I can buy my items else where, and for less money.

Re: Magnus Black Hornet broadheads

My choice for thick skinned game such as hogs and bear except straight edged not serrated. Fly great, sharp, strong as hell and no questions asked warranty. Just send a picture of the damaged head and a replacement will be on the way. I agree here. Straight edge cuts cleaner and causes less "wound ...

Re: Trail cam check

Top two & fourth picture are very nice bear. The Third picture might be a female, and here in Pa. it's breeding season yet. I again had a bear adjust my one trail camera for me, in pictures from today.
