    as other have said, a slight offset works best. On a hard helical one side lifts from the shaft.

    I’m not certain that it’s a very measureable difference in the 2. Particularly with 2″ vanes.

    :agree but I use offset

    This is the way to go …the “joatman stagger”.

    Bohning recomends the right helical.

    Bohning recommends either straight with a 4 degree offset or a helical. The first ones I fletched I did straight with a 1 degree offset and they shot great. :-k

    Use a helical blazer jig, the best helical possible. Don’t listen to others who say they won’t lay flat on the shaft, they will when the blazer jig is used, and it’s cheap.

    If guys are having issues with one side of the Blazer not adhering to the shaft then they need to adjust their clamp.  This was seen primarily with the bitz type fletching jigs.  I switched to the Arizona EZ Fletch Carbon Right Helical and my issue went away.
    I recently switched the arms out to the Mini Carbon Right Helical.   The amount of Helical the mini arms puts on the Blazers is amazingly increased over the original arms due to the same degree occurring over a shorter distance.  Like many I had to see it first hand to truly appreciate the improvement.
    Tests have shown consistently and repeatedly that helical fletched arrows will group tighter than straight or offset fletched arrows.  This improvement is magnified with fixed blade broadheads.  Many of the tests used a shooting machine to eliminate shooter error as well.
