If your arrows are tuned (or close to tuned), you bet!

I've been using three 4" feathers for several years now as I can chop out two 4" fletchings per full length feather.

Yes! That’s all I use on my arrows. Like said above, the key is being well tuned.

My hunting arrows are higher range FOC.

Have exclusively used three 4" fletch the past nine years.

Have been shooting 2" Tree Sharks with a 100 gn insert the past couple of years. They have been routinely tested to 35 yards and have always been spot on and have shown no signs of being finiky.

For laughs and giggles try 4 3" feathers. I have a friend who shoots 55# and GT arrows and 300 grains up front with this configuration. He won't shoot anything else. I like four fletch 3.75" fletch.
