Are Spinning Arrows more accurate?
As its name implies, helical fletching spirals around the arrow shaft, so when the arrow is shot, the helical orientation helps the arrow spin in flight, sort of the same concept as rifling in a barrel. The spinning allows the arrow to better stabilize while in flight, resulting in increased downrange accuracy.
Is 3 fletch or 4 fletch better?

If the two cams are rotating out of sync, it can “throw” your arrow. Oftentimes, this is where high/low hits come from once broadheads are screwed on. This is due to either the top or bottom cam being faster than the other, causing the arrow to not fly out of the bow straight.
What vanes do Olympic archers use?
According to Jake Kaminski, an American Olympian, the fact that mylar vanes are lightweight is the number one reason recurve archers use them. When you remove weight from the back of the arrow, it weakens it, allowing your fingers to make slight mistakes without greatly affecting the trajectory of the arrow.
