I guess it depends on what kind of rest you use. If you use a whisker bisquit or a drop away you may not have to make any adjustment at all. If you use a standard fork style rest you may have to adjust the width of the opening.

I bet you will shoot much tighter groops with helical vanes. I didn't know they made straight ones.

I use a blitzniburger jig (spelled something like that) in straight fletch. I have an adjustment that will give about a 3* twist either left or right. I do shoot this through split fork type rest. The reason I like a near straight arrow fletch is to line the blades of the broadhead to the fletching. This gives me a good arrow flight with the 2" plastic vanes.
