Slo mo of arrow from my new bow

This was after bare-shaft testing, shooting the arrow without fletches and watching how it flies. It starts out too long and kicks its tail out to the left, drifting to the right. You shorten the arrow a little at a time until it flies straight. If it is too short or stiff it kicks its tail out to  the right and drifts to  the left. Once its flying straight you fletch it.

Nice vid, David.  You don't think that arrows wiggle like that until you see it.  I always imagined them traveling perfectly straight.
