What vanes to put on

10 posts in this topic

I've got a whisker biscuit and I like the fact I can nock an arrow and not have to worry about the arrow falling of the rest. I don't want to change rests, I want to find a vane that's sturdy enough to hold up to the biscuit.

2nd part of the question, I don't have a place that refletches within 70 miles of my house so I want to buy the gear to do it myself, I shoot carbons, not sure on what vane to slap on my arrows ^^^^ (read the first paragraph). So what kind of vanes and jig/material should I get, with out having to spend a fortune, I've got plenty of time and patience to do this.

Try the blazer vanes they are durable and stiffer then others. As far as a fletching jig I would suggest you spend the money and buy the bitzenburger fletching jig and then pick up some vanes a bottle of rubbing alcohol and I use bohning platnum fletching cement.

I'd suggest Duravanes. They are readily available, not too expensive, and tough.

There are a handful of different fletching tools out there, but the only one I've used, and the one you'll see most pro shops using, is the Bitzenburger fletching tool.

I don't use wraps so I like using Bohning fletch tite platinum. I've found that super glues seem harder to clean off the arrow than fletch tite.

I have been using fusions for vanes. My son has a biscuit and that is what works and stands up the best to the abuse. We have tried blazers but after a while they start to curl. They also fletch awesome to a arrow by the way...I don't think you can beat them. I have been using wraps as well because it is easy to remove with heat and they install easy. The only downfall is that if you want to replace a vane you have to do them all...which is really not at all that bad because it only takes a minute to do all 3 anyways. I would suggest a bitz jig like the others have said...it is the best! Run the fusions or blazers at just a slight offset and you will be golden! I use goat tuff glue but that is my preference...thats up to you. Good luck!

Duravane Fusions are essentially a Blazer, except sturdier. I started shooting them this year and I'm very happy with them.

I think the Blazers are too tall and stiff to shoot through a Whisker Biscuit. I think Metrojoe's Duravane would be a much better choice.

exactly, fusions are like blazers except sturdier and the base is nicer to glue down. With the clear base you can tell if you got good glue coverage or not. Duravanes which are also made by Norway industries come in 3",4",or 5". They are just a plain old vain unlike blazers or fusions. I have not used Duravanes and have no experience with them, but have heard that people like them.

Can't offer much on vanes (I use feather w/launger rest) but you can't beat the Arizona EZ Fletch. Do three vanes at once, no messing around one at a time. Very easy, fast, small.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.
