The German, have you had a chance to shoot you Tac yet with the new fletching configuration? I noticed that PSE removed the Tac from their web site. If they are redesigning/fixing the Tac, I hope we don't get forgotten about!! I really don't think the recall fixed the problems.

I could only try yardages from 40 to 60, but i didn't notice any problems with my accuracy. The best: no damage on the fletching! I don't want made quick changes to all my arrows. I will continue testing, especially at long ranges. But i have to exchange my cocking rope and my d - loop before i can shoot again.

Pse removed the tac from their website a few days after the recall. Did you shot your tac after you received it back ?

Re: Anyone receive their Elite back from recall yet?

the arrows look good. what did you use to refletch them? I have six to refletch myself. With the Holidays, I haven't had a chance to shoot mine yet, but Im not in a hurry. Im not confident in the repair PSE did. it still looks like the fletching will make contact with the cables. time will tell. How a big archery company like PSE can overlook such an obvious problem is amazing to me.

Re: Anyone receive their Elite back from recall yet?

i'm using a cheap fletching jig. I made my own 55 / 125 ring for it:

The vanes are Bohning Impulse Vanes 4 ".
Here are some pictures of an nocked arrow, there is space between the fletching and the cables, its hard to see on the pictures, my camera is not small enough to get so close:

I could get an 1/16" allen key under my fletching and an 7/64" under the stock arrows:

Good idea making your own fletching ring. Your pictures are good enough to convince me the problem is not resolved.
