    although I'm still intrigued
    One of the great pleasures in life, is being intrigued, don't you think?
    Another pleasure , for me, is trying to guess the answers. Sadly, I am not often correct as I am not clever enough to use the right thoughts or techniques. Being wrong doesn't bother me too much, specially if I can be given the answer afterwards. And even more so, if I can understand the explanation.
    I think one of the problems with finding answers to this issue is the fact that it seems there are minute changes going on that affect the outcome.
    For example, putting on a different string that is twisted in the opposite direction, may give opposite rotations, but is that the twists or is it some other difference between the two strings? Slightly different length or weight or nock fit or nock point height? Could the twist direction change the way the strings travel through the air in the power stroke?

    Depends if you actually want accuracy or speed. If you aren't using absolutely dead straight arrows, they're not going to fly straight. If you can spin them on your finger or fingernail and they don't feel like they're NOT spinning at all, they're bent enough to cause lost points.

    However, if you spin them with offset or helical arrows of even two degrees, they'll fly good enough for most competitive archers but for those at the top of their game.

    There's been published research on this.

    We might need some more left handed archers.

    Perhaps we need ultra slow mo video of that last few mm of forwards travel after separation; in order to see what "shape/attitude" the shaft is in and the way things are changing.
    Would that explain what has to happen to get anti clockwise and possibly glean from that how clockwise could be generated?

    I should be able to get photos of that once my damn shooting machine gets finished.
    I can stop bullets with my camera flash, , so arrows will be no problem at all.
