    OK, I’ve used feather’s, Blazer’s, Duravane’s, but what does everyone else use, and tell me why.

    I’ve got to ask because I’m driving myself crazy on the type I want to use :-S :-S :-S

    I’ve used both feathers and Blazers, but I’m currently using 4” feathers because they tuned best.
    I would like to have a cool looking wrap with blazers, but I’ll take tune over flash.

    QuickSpin ST speed Hunters. They work great for me.

    I have shot 4 inch fletching forever. And am contemplating going to Blazers this year once my new Den gets here. I am watching this poll and comments closely.
    60lb Reezen 7.0 LH maxed @ 61lbs. Beman ICS Hunter 340 w/blazers, 125 grain Rocket Steelhead, QAD Pro Hunter rest.

    I use Blazers because they are lighter than most standard veins giving you a lighter arrow and a higher FOC. They steer like a feather but are quieter and more durable. They have also improved my accuracy with fixed heads, even in wind, if fletched at a one degree offset out to and including 70 yards. They do everything I want out of a vein and then some :thumbup

    I chose “other” because I couldn’t decide…. I use feathers in some cases, low-profile duravanes in others, quickspins other times…. [=}=]
    It just depends on what I’m doing, and what my goals are.

    I use blazers, arrows seemed to fly better and they are more durable than any 4″ vane I’ve shot.
    How are you living your Dash?

    Blazers just work for me. I have tried FOB’s, and while they were nice, they were not my type of fletching! [=}=]

    For me, the blazers fly great and give me the FOC I want with my set up.

    I voted other. I currently use Flex-fletch. What I have read about them was good and they are a local company (I’m a homer!). I bought my arrows with my new bow, and the shop uses them anyway so I didn’t even have to ask about putting them on. They seem more durable but we will see. My arrows are fletched with the ffp-418 model. I was shooting Blazer’s on my old arrows and was thinking of using the Flex-Fletch Flash but I am liking the 4′ ones. They feel a lot stiffer than duravanes to me. In theory their site and other things I read say it’s supposed to stabilize the arrow faster.

    I Use 3.125″ quick spins. I checked out the amount of spin on different types of vanes, & like they advertize- they do make your arrow spin alot faster. this is especially important for stabilizing broadheads.

    I have used duravanes, feathers, quikspin vane and blazers. I prefer the blazers right now. They are great for FOC plus durable and quiet. I have a second choice being quikspins and I would like to try the new st material that NAP came out with for the quikspin. Their small 2″ speedhunter vane works great too.

    I’m shooting 2″ blazers right now. They’ll hold up to anything and they’re light and steer wonderfully. I looked into the NAP quickspins but if you read on the blazer vane site (could just be advertizing) they state that while some spin is good, to much arrow spin can substancially slow down your arrow at longer yardage.

    They’re a wicked broadhead vane and they are accurate, and group very well. that’s my :2cents

    I’m gonna stick with the blazers
