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.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
