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
