    Ive used them exclusively for about 3 years now. For me they have held up well even after a pass through on an animal. Not all have made it but the majority have. the only place Ive see any problem with them is if you grab ahold of the when pulling the from a target they can sometimes slip or if you twist while you pull can cause you to put a little helical twist to you vanes, but that doesn't necessarily hurt anything. Good news is if you do tear one up all you gotta do is take a razor knife and cut it off and shrink another back on and your ready to go! no glue or nothing so you can do it anywhere with no problem. all you need is hot water.

    Used them last year for the first time. Shot two deer last year, both pass throughs, fletching still fine. Using same arrows this year to practice... no problems!!

    It's the only way to go, they fly great. I do put glue at both ends the shrink wrap all the way around the shaft. Kind of takes that straight egde off the shrink wrap. It sure does beat the tedious process of having to glue each individual feather and waiting for it to dry.

    If you're into straight fletch, they're fine.

    If you shoot helical, invest in a bitzenburger.

    Whats the advantage of helical over straight and visa versa?

    I have been using them for acouple of years now and I like them. Never had any trouble even using a whisker bisut.

    Helical spins the arrow for stability and creates drag to control your broadhead.

    There is no real benefit to shooting straight fletch.

    Turn around!
    Have used them in the past for a quick fix. They aren't bad and shot the same as the factory fletched blazer vane arrows even with the little bit of extra weight. I will say I love my ezfletch 100times more and it's pretty nice to fletch my own and to be able to use any fletching I want and to be able to put helical and a 4 fletch on my arrows when I want.

    I use them and love them. I think the model I use is the quick fletch st's. They have the kicker lip on the back edge that is supposed to spin the arrow like a helical. They shoot my stingers just fine.
