Prob slows it down if I had to guess. Creates more drag.

Yes. But not by much. I have half dozen arrows in helical. The other half in offset. The difference between the two was average 5 fps.

Correct statement above. Helical patterns are also slightly louder than straight, or offset; however, helicals are also slightly more accurate as well. To sum it up, the more rotation will equate to more noise and increased accuracy—especially in higher wind situations.

That about sums it up.

Invest in a good Bitzenburger Dial-o-Fletch if you are serious about building your own arrows. Worth every penny.
