    Default Odd colored fletching goes which way????

    LIke the title says. Which way does it go? Does it really matter? I got a new (first) bow a couple weeks ago and a guy at work gave me some old arrows to practice with. So does it really matter?

    It depends on the type of arrow rest you have. If its an old school recurve the the odd color goes out. If you have a shoot through type rest the odd color goes down. It may also depend on the knocks orientation to the fletchings.

    Odd color is out. They do that so you it will be very easy to nock the arrow. Actually, you can have the odd color any way you want, just as long as you know how the odd vane and nock are positioned.

    depends 100% on your rest.

    what kind is it?
    The first vehicles normally on the scene of a crime are ambulances and police cruisers. If you are armed you have a chance to decide who gets transported in which vehicle, if you are not armed then that decision is made for you.

    Be prepared, because someone else already is and no one knows their intent except them.

    Like Dredly said it depends on your rest. 2 prong rest it would go down. Basket style or lizard tounge rest it goes up, conventinal recurve style finger like rest it goes out. Not sure about whisker basket style never shot one.

    the newer WB's all have a small different colored section of bristles the cock vein should go away from this.

    - for a drop away it doesn't really matter as long as there is no contact with cables, rest, or the riser.

    - for a prong style you can either (depending on the prong) shoot with cock vein up or down.

    - lizard tongue style should have cock vein up

    as long as you have the cock vein the same direction everytime and there is no contact then you can put the arrow any way you want :P

    To echo everyone else, depends on the rest.
    My drop aways - I keep odd fletching up on all of them. It doesn't matter which way they go - as long as it is consistent (and does not cause string/cable contact).
    My wife has a prong rest, and again - consistency, odd fletching down.
