I think they do!
I MUCH prefer them over the stock fletching and fletching you manually glue on.
I like the twists the best. My group last year got pretty dang small after I put the twist quick fletching on.

Although I've never used Quick Fletch, I've looked at the price tag. They are pretty expensive. I bought an Arizona EZ Fletch Mini and a 100 pack of white Blazers instead. I'm set for a long time. The Arizona EZ Fletch puts an aggressive right helical on the shaft. Might want to check it out and its easy.

The quick fletches work, but I'm not a fan of the weight on the back and certainly not a fan of the cost—you'll quickly figure that out when you start busting vanes off when practicing. Get a fletching jig and some glue and do it yourself—you'll save a lot of money over time by doing it yourself!

I have an older metal fletching jig that I use.
I can get my vanes to stay on no problem but during practicing if my arrow goes through the target it's almost guaranteed to rip off a vain or pull the front of it off.
I haven't had that happen to my quick fletches yet.
It might have been the glue I was using but i've tried gel super glue and the fletching stick you melt with a lighter and rub on the fletching it's self.

Could've just been the user instead of the glue lol


I busted every vane off my 3rd round at the range with my glued on vanes but haven't busted a single vane since my quick fletchings.

The proper glue, and more importantly the proper prep, and you'll rip/tear fletchings long before you will tear them off....I guarantee it!

For quick fixes and the fact they pattern nice is a plus. But I would prefer just normal blazers

exactly !!! It took me a while trying every single glue known to man to figure out it wasn't the glue...... It was the prep . And make sure to prep the vanes as well .

That was most likely my problem then.
I used the melting glue that you rub on and I tried the gel super glue.
I do use gel super glue to hold my inserts and nocks on though and that holds extremely well for those, just not fletchings.

Which glue worked for you?
I still can't find a glue that works good on my carbon arrows.
I seen somewhere online the melting glue does good for aluminum arrows but not so well for carbon?
That might have been my issue as well. I was using melting glue on carbon arrows?
