Yes, I agree that orange is pretty easy to see, Tony. Until the fall leaves start turning colors! ;)
You are shooting 2" vanes now?
Not vanes, feathers, but yes 2”. When shooting at home I shoot a lot of bareshafts, it lets me know if I’m getting bad releases, but fly great when I do as I should. Shoot them up to 25 yards. It doesn’t take a great deal of feather if the bow (and you) is set up correctly.

What distance do you do your bare shafting at?

Up to 25 yards on bare shafts and they still hit well. As good as my normal anyway.

Makes them a lot easier to find. :D

I would agree with that!
Fewer things more frustrating than searching for a lost arrow.
Aim small, miss small!
