      I don’t plan to shoot at anything looking at me, so having bright fletches is an advantage in my book:

      For you Boomers who didn’t have the advantage of knowing where to look, here’s a closer picture. 😉

      (No children, that is not a crossbow bolt, that’s a recurve arrow, 30 3/8 inches long BOP. Said P being a Zwickey Judo Point, to be precise.)

      Your thread title is “why I like bright fletches”. But you didn’t say why, so I am left to guess.

      I’ll guess it’s because it makes the arrow look like a cross bow bolt?:D

      BTW, looks like some sort of an orchid leaf at the base of the stump. Any idea what it is?

      Sorry, the first picture did not convey what I wanted it to do here. If you look at the stump, there’s a light-colored vertical stripe just left of center. Immediately to the right of that stripe, dead centered on the stump, is the fletching.

      We have all kinds of orchids here in NH. Unfortunately, I don’t know them without their blooms, and most of those are gone for the season. I’ll try to identify it.
