    So I’m getting ready to build some arrows and i am curious as to what color of fletching all of you can see best while your arrow is in flight? here in idaho lighted knocks are illegal so we are forced to try and watch our arrows path by watching the fletching. My color is pink!!!!!! i catch a lot of flack from my hunting buddies for it but i could really care less what they think and i can see that color better in flight than any other i have tried.

    Try this old trick we did years ago. Right at the back of one of your vanes, super glue a very small piece of down feather. It never seamed to bother the flight of the arrow, but when it hit the target it was like a small flash bulb going off as the down fluffed at the impact. :shock:

    To watch in flight, I agree with everyone else…

    White fletching and white wraps.

    But for looks, I like 2 pink and 1 white. Coolest looking arrows in the woods. Plus, only real men can shoot pink arrows! :thumbup

    White for me…as far as seeing them fly. But, when I shot them, I would catch myself peeking to watch them fly and I would fling one pretty bad now and then. Had to quit that so I when back to two green and one orange Fusion vanes. I cant see them very well flying, but they show up good when looking for them. That helped a lot to get me out of “peeking” to watch my arrow fly.

    In the woods, a flo orange wrap shows up much better than anything else for me– especially in low light situations.
