You guys beat me to the response. I was told the same , you lose a bit of speed using helical through the WB, so just went with the Blazer. I've been satisfied with them so far.
Switched to Muzzy 4 blades (100 gr) and am finding they hit about an inch lower than field points. Bow is perfectly paper tuned. Are you getting the same results?


I shoot the Muzzy 3 blade with a right helical and only have to make a minor left adjustment on the sight window.

I shoot a slight right helical. My broadheads fly better and don't tend to loosen up as much when I target practice with them...

I did shoot a 3 in helical with real feathers . My broadheads flew better and don't tend to loosen up as much when I target practice with them and I can use them on my big recurve bow and get good performance if I am poor that year and can not find any arrows to replace the bad ones...

I shoot a right helical plastic vein through a WB and have no issue with speed or accuracy nor any degradation of the fletch.

The main job of a fletching is to stabilize the arrowóthink of it like a rudder. The greater the Helical twist, the faster the arrow rotates and stabilizes. However, when you increase helical twist you also increase noise slightly, as the fletchings "cut through" the air, and you will have a very slight loss of speedóbut you generally will improve group sizes and accuracy to a small degree. I use a 3 degree helical on mine.

My Arizona EZ Fletch Mini puts a very aggressive helical on my Blazers...I think it's 6 degrees of helical.
