Rather than start another thread, I figured I’d throw this in here. A question for those of you using 4-fletch – how do you prefer to orient your fletching when the arrow is nocked, and have you played around with it at all? Noticed any advantages/disadvantages to particular orientations?

I orient mine to 45/135/225/315º like this:

It’s worked fine, as far as I can tell, and I’ve never really given much thought to orienting them any other way. But I came across this link the other day (scroll down near the bottom) and it got me thinking. Has anyone else experienced ‘arrow kick’ as a result of 4-fletch orientation?
