What brand and style of fletchings do you shoot and why?

12 posts in this topic

I personally have shot the quickspins and did not like them for the money they get for em and I also have shot duravanes which were pretty good, except for addhesion problems and last year I bought a single fletcher and started fletching my own arrows and I used bohning killer vanes and I have yet to rip one off thus faror have one start peeling on me. So just curious to see what everyone likes to use and why?

I have used the traditional 3 Inch vanes..but I am looking to make a switch to something else, for the most part I have a couple buddies that love their quickspins. But they are not experts and I would like a few more opinions.

I like blazers for the price and mostly the durability. but didn't fly good with fixed broadhead throw wisker bisket, now I have a ripcord. I started using a few of those quick flech nap twister, no problems with them

I use 4" feathers. I've tried just about type of flethcing at one time or another, and nothing stabilizes a fixed blade broadhead like feathers. They are also light, cheap, and adhere easily.

Blazers, blazers, and blazers. Oh did I mention blazers? I think I made my point.

Seriosly, they are way better than quick spins, durable and the price point on them is justifiable.

thats my .02

I put blazers on my aramid kv arrows this year and I don't really care for them. I like the quick spins better.

Anybody have any complaints about a whicker bicuit with a blazer or quick spin?

I use blazers with a whisker biscuit and I haven't had any problems yet. I was planning on getting regular vanes originally, but the guy at the archery shop gave me the blazers and they seem to work pretty good for me.

I am using 4 inch feathers this year again. I go back and forth from vanes to feathers. Kinda wierd maybe but feathers just seem make it more real to me for hunting. And I like the forgiveness factor. Beman arrow with a 100 grain Magnus Stinger 4 blade. A new head for me this year.

I don't think you can beat the blazers for the price or performance! Not only are the the best vanes on the market IMHO but very affordable.

I have used the quick spins for the past two seasons and have been very happy with the arrow flight and accuracy. I use the Ripcord for a arrow rest. I know a few who have used the blazers and have also been happy with their performance.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
