Turkey Wing Spikes
We offer 4 basic types of these "pointer" feathers.
The shortest ones are 8-10" long for Arm Bustles. The
12-14" length are best for small bustles and the longer
ones are stronger, with the quill bases normally
in better condition, which are best for adult bustles.
They are especially desirable for arrow fletching due
to their great strength. Tips can often be improved
with some careful trimming, regardless of the quality
Select Wing Spikes
These are hand selected for general bustle work and
are sold by the dozen or 6 dozen in half rights and half
lefts. They have good web at the base of the feather
and an overall length as listed. The tips of these
feathers are usually not perfect, but it is a waste of
money to pay for a perfect tip when it will just be cut
off in preparing hackle bustles.
