It depends on the day, but cock feather in "technically" should give better flight(archers paradox).

Feather in - especially off the self - way less wear on the fletchings.

Cock feather out. It seems like it would take quite a bit of tuning alchemy to make sure the cock feather is coming away from the riser at just the right time if you're shooting cock feather in.

Out, usually, as this is how I was taught like 45 years ago. Conventional wisdom is that cock feather out ensures that the fletch clears the riser. But recently I experimented both ways and could not tell the deference. I believe that if you are shooting an arrow with the proper dynamic spine that the aft end of the arrow bends away from the riser due to paradox.

Cock feather out on bows setup with an elevated rest. Cock feather in on bows shot off the shelf. I seem to get better flight with each respectively.

Cock feather in when off the shelf, out with rest and plunger. Yes technically it should not matter when properly tuned. However cock feather in allows me to tune to a lower nock height without hen feather interference with the shelf. Gives me just that little bit more reach before I'm gapping above the target.

Cock feather in on my recurves and longbows that are shot off the shelf. I get no feather wear that way.

Fentiger, don't see much sense, or logic in shooting a shaft in a manner I don't plan on doing on a regular basis, of course unless I go bowfishing, then I might.

Bogen I agree with that...I think ppl are shooting arrows that are too stiff becuase they are hung up on either the length of the arrow HAVING TO BE such and such or the TIP WEIGHT having to be such and such.

I try to use the same tip weights but I don't really care so much as getting a good flying arrow.

I shoot with feathers at 12 o'clock, 4 o'clock, and 8 o'clock. The cock feather is in but at the 4 o'clock position. With carbon arrows and tunable nocks you can rotate them to achieve the best arrow flight. Seems to work very well with all of my bows.
