    It's all about creating drag at the back of the arrow. It's typical to add some offset with helical. If you fletched straight with a little more offset, you'd have the same thing. I've always used helical but that's because I started with feathers and that's the clamp I have. I do have a little trouble getting vanes to accept the helical twist, it takes some messing with the offset to get it to work. I'm likely going to get a straight clamp soon and just use a touch more offset. Here is the other side of the issue. The more drag you create, the faster the arrow slows down and the more the arrow will drop. If you are planning on taking really long shots, it will have a noticeable affect. It can become a balancing act. I think for those of us who don't regularly spot and stalk out west, It doesn't make a big difference.

    Triton Rich replied to a thread bow press in Podunk Corner
    It was actually a pretty simple concept. The whole problem is that with the limb tips angling inwards, the bow tends to want to slip down out of the fingers of the press. I hooked up a small ratchet strap on the riser to hold it in place. Worked just fine.

    Triton Rich replied to a thread bow press in Podunk Corner
    I have an EZ press green and a bowmaster portable. The bowmaster is ok for emergency stuff on most bows but it is a bit of a pain for set-up and maintenance type stuff. The EZ press seems like the greatest thing ever for pressing my Bowtechs (Destroyer and Old Glory) but there is a problem. It won't press some of the way over center limbs that are popular today. They do sell some adapters that are meant for newer Hoyt bows but they are expensive. Now, just looking at pictures of an Element, I bet the EZ press would work fine but the limbs do look slightly over center so It is probably not recommended. Looks to me like the Halon would be the same story. I managed to press my Brother's Hoyt Spyder but I used some special precautions that I cannot share......
