TrueFlight Shield cut feathers are the finest turkey feathers available anywhere. Bright colors and uniform pre-ground quills for consistent fletching dozen to dozen. TrueFlight Feathers are proudly made in the USA for the best in quality and availability. Shield cut has the consistent height of roughly 5/8", but you can choose the cut length of 4", 5", or 5.5".
Shield cut in 5" is the single most popular feather length and cut in traditional archery. Shield cut has slightly more surface area compared to parabolic cut, which will make arrows fletched with shield feathers a touch more stable in flight than those fletched with parabolic cut feathers. Parabolic cut is a little bit quieter in flight as wind has less surface area to grab on too.
