    Helical arrows

    Does Goldtip make a arrow with helical veins in a micro shaft? Or does and other brand?

    The big arrow companies usually have offset helical or straight. You usually get the best helical buying a jig yourself or have your local pro-shop fletch them. I DIY on all my arrows. I get very good helical on my 5mm FMJs.

    I 100% stopped using helical vanes on my arrows 10 years ago. If you stand down range and listen to one fly by. You will understand why.
    I could hear that arrow coming....

    Dont get shot testing this out. But I promise you its worth testing first hand.

    I will only shoot helical, any extra noise is dependent on what vanes you use, and well worth it in my opinion.

    I agree most arrows make some sound with fletching. But actually the sound of you bow reaches the animal before the fletching. Here's a good video example. My set-up with 4 to 5 percent helical has never had any animal jump the string. There are some newer fletching on the market that are quieter than others.
