Blazers and Nitro Vanes

Do you have a preference? Any remarkable differences between the two? Which one do you prefer?

Any input appreciated.

Going to Cabelas on Sunday for a Bitz... So excited to start experimenting and building my own arrows...

Uh Oh! Janie's got her gun!

Re: Blazers and Nitro Vanes

Been shooting Blazers since they were introduced 10 years ago. I tried some others along the way but none of them have performed for me like Blazers. I don't see a change in my setup any time soon.

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

2 inch blazers with a right helical for me.

The older I get the better I was.

In hot pink and white I might add, easier for me to see.

Blazers, fletched with Az EZ fletch mini. Puts an excellent right helical on them.

Last year I decided to experiment and fletched one arrow each with: 2" Blazers, 2" Vanetec, 3" Vanetec, Razyr feathers (are those 2 or 3"?), and 4" Gateway feathers. And honestly other than noise, shooting my QAD Exodus heads at 50 yards they all shot great. The feathers were the loudest btw, the 4" parabolic were slightly less so than the Razyr's. I wish I took video of it. So I just stay with Blazers because I like them.

Re: Blazers and Nitro Vanes

Ha, I would have been happy just with aluminum arrows and four inch vanes.
The change means new glue, new flether, new arrows, new vanes...

Already knew how to shoot deer. Somebody else probably didn't know how to shoot deer.

Sweet! lol

I'm using a WB n haven't been using a helical vane for years. I just don't know if I want to go with a drop away or if I can run a helical through a WB. My guess is no.

Janie,

I set my son's bow up with a WB. He's shooting Easton Nemesis arrows with 2" Blazers fletched right helical. No problems at all.

Bowhunting IS life...The rest is just details!
