What I'm finding useful is the third video. You can clearly see how the tail swings to the right. This causes the whole arrow to veer to the left. That arrow always shoots to the left for me. It is about 2 inches shorter and has a lighter point than the others so it is a classic case of a too-stiff arrow.

For lefties, would too stiff arrows veer to the right?

Correct, because a lefty would be shooting off the other side of the bow. The bowstring takes a big jump to the side as it slips off your fingertips, the arrow needs to be on that side of the bow and have the right amount of flexibility.

This is very visible in this video at 1:20 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzWrcpzuAp8

What if you're using a release mechanism? Since it's not slipping off any fingers and therefore not twisting at all, would it veer at all?
