For low-KE youth setups, I recommend the 1214's for the better FOC, and that they take a G-nock or F-nock direct fit, plus the thicker wall makes them a bit more durable. The Jazz 1214 and 1413 are both 5.9 gpi, so shoot at about the same speed, the main difference being in the glue-in bullet point weight and spine ratings. The 1214 uses a 45-gr bullet, with a better spine rating and FOC (7.5% w/ Feathers or Blazer X2 vane, typical 3D FOC), while the 1413 uses a 35-gr bullet which gives it a very low-FOC (5.5% w/ feathers or Blazer X2). You can always epoxy/hotmelt birdshot into the bullet point to improve weight/FOC in either the 1214 or 1413. A 2º Right offset, 3-fletch is fine, and standard. Feathers are a hassle since they aren't durable and pose a small risk, plus are more expensive both initially, then in refletching. If the feather comes loose, it is possible for a kid to get it shot into a finger ... I've done it myself with my recurve. On a small diameter shaft, I'd recommend the Blazer X2 vane, which is lighter, lower profile than the regular Blazer and not much heavier than feathers.
