    How to identify a left or right wing feather:

    • Look at the nock end of an arrow (as though it is about to be shot), and rotate it so that one fletching is on top of the shaft. If the "catch lip" is to the left of the web, it is a right wing feather. If the "catch lip" is to the right of the web, it is a left wing feather (see diagram).

    What jig should I use?

    • RIGHT wing jig (right wing clamp) for a for a RIGHT wing feather

    • LEFT wing jig (left wing clamp) for a for a LEFT wing feather

    How does the shaft rotate with different feathers?

    • Left wing feathers should be used to rotate the arrow counter clockwise
    • Right wing feathers should be used to rotate the arrow clockwise
    • Rotation as viewed by the shooter

    Which wing should I pick?

    • You can successfully shoot either wing.
    • An arrow does not rotate noticeably until it is well clear of the bow.
