I have two sets of arrows. Same arrows, different fetching. One set has Fusion European cut 2 inch vanes fletched helically. The other has Blazers in an offset. I use the fusions with a fixed broad head and the blazers with a mechanical. The offset fletched arrows fly about 10 FPS faster. But, they are not as accurate. The helical arrows routinely shoot tighter than the offsets.

I acetone my shafts, and fetching bases. Then I use fletchtite on the vanes. Never had an issue. But, I am not using a bisker whisket. I use a fall away.

dad and i both use 4" vane with 2 degree offset. did a test last year with different degrees and vanes vs. blazer. Blazer was louder through the air and the more helical made it louder as well. it could be because the blazer is stiffer. we matched up our bitzenberger jig with factory fletings from carbon express which are 2 degree offset. combine that with the g-lock blu-glu (which is pricey) and we never have a problem. we use like a 2-3000 grit sandpaper and give the area a slight scuff, then clean with acetone.

I gotta friend doing then right now. He should have them done in a few days. He even let my dad borrow a 2005 Bowtech Tomkat. It's set at really low draw weight so it shoots very slow compared to my Martin but it's accurate and quite. The arrows he has for it he fletched himself and they have blazers so Im sure he knows what he's doing and mine will be fine.

If you are shooting a left or right helical, your wisker bisket will tear them up. In my opinion, you should be shooting a straight fletched vane with a wisker bisket.
