Lately I've been dealing with a noisy release.  Every now and then there would be a loud hiss from the arrow.  After quite a bit of effort with the release it dawned on me that it could be the arrows.  I began to isolate the hissing arrow and found that it hissed every time whereas the others were almost completely silent.

Here in the  picture are four of the arrows.  The one on the right is the "hisser".  The only thing that stands out with the fletch on that arrow is that it is in better condition than the others! Otherwise there doesn't seem to be any other factor.  

Anybody else ever experienced this?

I think it is also easy to hear in the short movies I’ve made. Every time I shoot an arrow damaged like the 1 in the left the hiss is there. 

If for you is the nicest one who’s hissing maybe the quills are the culprit

But the one that hisses may show a bit of wear but overall is in better condition.   The worst of the bunch ( broadhead damage 🙂 ) doesn't make any noise at all!

Ghost of an angry bird hissing at you then. Wind and a channel is enough for making noise.

Could be that the cause is on the pointy end.  If the point was scarred on impact with a rock, or is bent/loose, it could make noise.

Gotta take a look at the point.   Never thought about the point.

Is the quill glued down flat against the arrow shaft? Sometimes, if the quill has an edge that is not solidly and flatly glued down, it can make noise.

The smart alec response is to damage the good one to look like the quiet one.  You might be on to something.  Might have to just refletch the "good one", or just not worry about it, use it for practice.
