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.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
