Some people may disagree, but feathers need not be split or from the wings to be effective on arrows!
Take a look at the picture to the left.
Lashed like this, even a flat tail feather can be used. There is very little preparation to be done to make this an effective fletching!
The advantages of this style are as follows:
- You could use 1 or 2 feathers, depending on your situation.
- Just a single wrap is needed to secure.
- The top is free to be pushed to one side or the other to clear the arrow shelf, the archers hand or full quiver.
Give it a try and let me know what you think, and if you need more information on this style let me know.
