I really like them. I feel that they have helped tighten my groups more than the blazers.

I bet they get ate up real quick in a whisker biscuit? I really need to invest in a different rest because the one I have eats fletchings like they are candy.

there the only way to go if you flech your own arrows other wise there like 5 bucks to have someone else do them for you.

I agree that they also helped to tighten up my groups a bit.

I pay to have mine fletched. I have always wanted to fletch my own but I go through so few, it really doesn't cost me that much.

I shoot a heavier (125 gr) fixed blade broadhead and used to have problems getting them to fly good. Now I shoot Quickspins and have no problems with arrow flight at all. As mentioned shooting them through a whisker biscuit may give you some issues.

They don't hold up real well for target shooting because they seem to be a little soft, but for shooting broadheads they work really good.

Do they seem noisier to anyone or is it just me? It seems to me that they are louder when flying, will that cause problems when used for hunting. I was not impressed with them at all I didn't shoot any better with these then a regular blazer vane, did I do something wrong?

Thanks for the replies.

There may be a slight hiss while the arrow is in flight. It doesn't seem to me that it is any louder than any other vane. The noise is probably mostly from the arrow anyway.

IMO the blazer is more hype than anything. It functions the same as any other vane. The only difference with quik spins is that they impart a bit more spin. I think that would help with accuracy at longer distances. Inside 30 yards it probably doesn't make a difference which vane you shoot. They just seemed to shoot a little better for me. Of course, it's like anything else. Confidence goes a long ways.

I'M NOT SLAMMING BLAZERS! So lets not go to war on which vane is best. I shot blazers the last two years and they performed well. I just feel I shoot better with quik spins. The price for them is a little out of line though.

Blazers were actually designed for the wisker biscut rest that is why they are made stiffer then any other vane, then we relized how well they will make a fixed broadhead fly out to some very long ranges and still keeping perfect arrow flight with such short fletching instead of the normal 4" or 5" fletch that is were all the hype came from,and for me until they come up with something different that is what I am shooting. And now most prefletched arrows at the shop are now fletched with the blazers also. They still don't make my groups smaller with the recurve but I think thats just me. laugh

I've have tested the quick spins (2" and 4") and they really don't make much of a different if your shooting within 25 yards. The 4" vane shoots tighter groups anything beyond 30 yards and the 2" vanes are probably just for looks. Maybe the 2" might work better on smaller and lighter arrows.

I fletch my own arrows all with a right degree spin.

Thats a good point I never considered arrow weight and speed into any of this. I shot with blazers all summer so far so Ill switch back to regular blazers and see if anything changes.

    • I have a group of bachelor drakes on the pond this year.  The pond water level is high so there is flooded timber. A great combo for photography.                                  
    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?
