    Waaah... That's a lot of fletching! 19 to make and my quiver is full for a while.
    Using a samick recurve for now. 66" 35lb at 28, my draw gives me a bit more at 30".
    Tested this arrow today and it has a great rifling motion, due to the lay of the feathers. Went straight n true so can't complain!
