Gateway Feathers - Right Wing - 4" Shield - Barred
This feather will average 16.5 millimeters tall at its highest point. Its average weight will be 3.6 grains each and is used for both hunting arrows and target arrows. This feather can be used on all types of arrow shaft materials. Is best applied with Fast Fletch Glue.
I use an awful lot of gateway feathers in all sizes. Never had a bad one yet.
Excellent quality, and the usual excellent service from Merlin.
No complaints with these.
Scraped off all the plastic vanes from my 4 dozen or so carbon arrows and refletched all of them with these. I did half R/W helical and the other half with my straight clamp. they both fly great and what a difference to my shooting. highly delighted!
No thanks !
Bought the blue barred and white barred and chose not to use either as I was really disappointed with the blue which was not as vibrant as I was expecting when compared to the picture and the colouring and barring is much more faded on the reverse on both colours. Also there is big inconsistency in the height of the feathers, in some cases up to 10mm. I accept these are natural products, but I won't be buying Gateway feathers again. This review should not detract from the service from Merlin which was superb as usual.
