It’s called clocking. 99% of the people will not shoot good enough to ever matter. Now if it makes you feel good to do then by almeans do it. It won’t hurt. But almost all shafts clock left.

There has been lots of test over the years on left vs right offset. This was done with out anybody talking about clocking. Most test shows very little to no difference in right vs left.

I will add with him saying a tip almost know one knows. Well clocking has been around for years. I tested myself in 2016. I think I even made a post on this sight. When I was looking at it. And in the beginning I thought it was worth it. Not anymore

Again it won’t hurt to do it

I thought " Clocking " was aligning fretching and broadheads all the same . To me what he was doing is not " clocking " it was a methed to determine left or right on flecting. I have never seen or heard that before .

Clocking is doing what he is talking about. This has been around a long time.

So then, what do you call it when you line broadheads & vanes ?

indexing heads to vanes. this is mostly a waist of time. I will add if you where hunting where shots are 70 or so and longer then yes I would do it. but its mainly making all arrows match not the head to vanes. this would fall under dynamic reaction. you want all arrows to react the same on shot. again mainly a waist but it wont hurt either

Pretty interesting video by 1Nestly he just posted on this.

Does it make a difference which way the bowstring is twisted in relation to the way the arrow rotates?

Watch and find out...

And I am in agreement with enewman, clocking and indexing the broadhead with the fletching is useless; it doesn't hurt, but I don't think the time investment is worth the benefit.

Indexing dynamic spine is something else and I believe is worth the effort.

I saw a video the other day Levi just made. Talking about this new thing he had never seen or heard of. Haha. It was clocking. Iím thinking he should learn how to google
