What are the "hot" plastic vanes these days

What's good for hunting in 2". Blazer's still hot. What about the Bohning X-vane? Anyone using it.

I'm so far behind on hot, I'm behind. Nice to think over some change before spring hits.

Re: What are the "hot" plastic vanes these days

I like 2 inch blazers for hunting and true flight feathers for my targets arrows both done in a right helical. I just bought a pack of bohning x vanes in hot pink for my target arrows, but haven't tried them yet.

The older I get the better I was.

Shooting 2" Blazers on my hunting rig, Bohning X2's on the 3D set up, and 5" Feathers indoors-I want that parachute affect!

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: What are the "hot" plastic vanes these days

I like the Razyrs, was not a fan of the Fusions though. It seemed I replaced a decent number of them anytime they made contact with another arrow, right where the clear base and colored section met.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

Re: What are the "hot" plastic vanes these days

Looks like some new vanes and a helical CARBON fletching jig for the spring practice.
Thanks for the help fellas.

I even used my computer's spread sheet to come up with some carbon arrows to pick first. Came up with a unit cost. What choices!!!!! Think I'll pick up 6 carbon arrows, and then pick out a different 6 carbon arrows later.
I remember learning how to do spread sheets. I was long out of school, and I used a written reloading book I kept, for my first learning experience. lordy, did I mess up the first one page sort. The first time doing anything is easily fouled up.

It's both for change and the fact so few archers are now using aluminum arrows. My last jig maker says they sell about 95% of their new jigs to carbon arrow users.

I'm near to the last rose of summer; especially in using any carbon arrows, at all.

Thanks again.

I like my 2" blazers, my wife shoots 2" fusions and they fly well on her bow.

Only the owners of a GSP would truly understand, "If I fits, I sits".

Re: What are the "hot" plastic vanes these days

i recently switched from 4" feathers to the blazer vanes...good choice on my part. lot better groups and no need to worry about feathers getting messed up from getting hit. i refletch also and taking the base of feathers off the shaft was insanley time consuming and frustrating. havent had a blazer come off yet.

Its not an obsession...Its a passion 2b

I still haven't found anything that will perform better than good old 2" Blazers.

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