Arrows are supposed to SPIN, dammit

I really do dig this show.

However, they need to do some research on real-world weapons.

The feathers on an arrow don’t keep it stable (in the sense of flying like an airplane, without twirling).

The feathers make it SPIN on its axis.

As with bullets and most rockets, a spinning arrow is more likely to fly more-or-less straight and hit its target.
