Arrow Vanes

7 posts in this topic

Hey all.........was just wondering what type of vanes are the preferred vane for you.  Right now I have Blazer's but have been looking at the new Helios vanes.  Up until I bought these Maxima Red's with the Blazers, i was shooting Quick Spins.  Honestly, I don't notice much difference between the two as far as my accuracy.  Obviously shooting more and more and more and more is going to tighten my groups up that much more, so I guess that begs the question.......how much to vanes really make the difference?

I really think if your arrow is tuned to you bow  right and you have a drop away rest, it doesnt matter that much what vane you use.  Quick spin might help a fixed broadhead a bit since it spins quicker but I dont see how it would help target points or expandables.  Over the years I have tried a buncha product and now it's down to what do I like the looks of. I like feathers for indoor target shooting and smaller vanes for 3D shoots.  Havnt done it for a while but used to do it a lot. For hunting I like a 3 inch vane and I shoot expandables.  Nice bright colors help me find the arrow quicker when needed.  And the vane is silent if I brush it against something,  like my sleeve... :)

2" Fusions for me.  They're essentially a Blazer, but they are a little more durable and tougher.

I've been using blazers for 4-5 years now and really like them. I fletch my own arrows so I have tried a few different vanes. Had the quick spins for a season but they were really noisy. I also tried the fusion vanes they worked well and were very durable. I just prefer the look of blazers so I switched back to them.

Yeah, I think they all work just fine.  I have stuck with 4" feathers mainly because I think they are the best for stabilizing an arrow and I think they look the coolest.  Its about the last traditional thing about my whole rig.  =^D

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
