Re: Blazer Vanes - Helical or Straight??
I've read a couple of articles over the past year or two on arrow stabilization. I don;t know if it was here or archery talk where there was test done on which vane of feather was the best. But it all came down to getting the arrow to stabilize as quickly as possible out of the bow. The results were quick spins and then 3 in feathers with helical for a fixed brodhead. Kind of hard to get to any helical out of regular blazer.
I shot blazers for a while, then i shot razr feathers. Saw a big diff when i was able to put some helical on the feathers. I just recently fletched a new batch of arrows with 3 in feathers with a nice right helical( right helical for right hand) and did a five foot paper tune last night. So far so good but the true test shows up on walk back tune and 40 yard shots with Grizz tricks.
If you fletch your own and got time to play, try a couple styles and sizes. My buddy couldn;t get his bow to tune with quick spins but shot fine with regular blazers.
