Was wondering if anyone uses blazer vanes on there crossbow bolts and how they perform. I was planning on wrapping and fletching a half dozen of arrows for my dad for his birthday. On his bolts he currently has, they seem to be like a 3 or 4 inch fletching. Was wondering if id screw him up by switching them to a blazer vane?
I use the 2" blazers on mine and they work great. I use the EZ fletch bolt that has a "radical helical". Two things you have to watch. On some bows the blazer will "bottom out" and hit the bottom of the rail grove. It can cause the arrow to raise up and the string to go underneath which would cause a dryfire or partial dryfire. The other thing is if you have too much helical or too much offset it can cause the vanes to rub the inside of the rail and can affect accuracy.
What crossbow does he have?
