Default Arrow question for my bow

I upgraded my bow this year to a PSE Revenge. It shoots just fine except I am tearing the fletchings off of my arrows. I am looking to find some good arrows that can handle the speed of the bow. ( it is a big upgrade from my old PSE Bowhunter )

Also, part two of the question. Being shooting left handed which vein placement would be best? IE.... Straight, left-helical, left offset. Any advice would be helpful.

It shouldn't matter how fast your bow is, there is another reason your vanes are being ripped off, maybe rest contact, you have to be more specific.

I would recommend using a right hand helix on your arrows, as long as you can get good vane clearance, what kind of rest are you using?

I am using Whisker biscuit. I am using PSE 300 arrows. I thought maybe I was hitting a cable upon release or side of the biscuit. I had it paper tuned today and no problems. The gentleman looked at me shooting it today and my groupings are very tight. His exact words was Quit trying out for the olympic team and aim at other points on the target or learn how to refletch your own arrows.

I have a question for you are the Vanes coming off in the air or when the arrow hits the target if they are coming off in the air I had that happen and it was because the glue didn't hold but the whisker bisket does do a number on vanes I no that also I switch to a ripcord no problems at all hope you get it straighten out its a pain to shoot and vanes fly of good luck

put a drop of glue on the front tip and the back edge of each fletching. may help with them tearing.

Well, your grouping is impressive! Like said, put some more glue on the edges of your fletchings. Just curious, I don't recognize that target. What kind is it? How far are arrows penetrating into it and from how far?

I didn't measure the penatration. The yardage was 20 yds. The target was at Archery Addictions.
