Tried feathers back in the day when I was first getting into archery. Didn't like how easily the feathers got all buggared up. Maybe it was me but they just got screwed up quickly for me. That is why I shoot plastic.
That's great to know TF. It is time to redo mine. I noticed last winter the snow would pack them down and I actually forgot about that till I read your post lol. It is now on a post-it and my "things to do" for tomorrow/later today lol.
