Was looking around to refletch some arrows I have and saw a few other options besides the regular blazer fletchings. Just wondering if anyone has had any luck the Quifkfletch or the Nocturnal fletching. Both of these options seem like they would be easier to do then blazer vains. But will they fly just as good?

Quickfletch and Nocternal fletching are quicker and easier than doing the normal style fletching like Blazers or other veins or feathers but not as tough for the quick fletch and both add weight to the back of the arrow reducing your FOC of the arrow.

I have a few arrows with 2 inch feathers RH helical and really like them. Will probably get more and fletch more arrows that way when able to get back to shooting or they might just sit in the closet if I switch completely to traditional archery like I am thinking about doing.

In reality Blazer veins are hard to beat

Thank you kmon1. I guess I'll just have to learn to fletch them myself because getting them refletched at the shop can get costly. I was hoping that either of those 2 would be a good alternative. It would make the job a lot easier. Guess easier isn't always better. Thanks again!

I went from Blazer to the Quickfletch and have been very satisfied with the results. I was doing a wrap around the arrows with the Blazers on top as well.
