    duravanes vs. blazers

    Im ordering some new arrows but ive always just used 4 inch duravanes so i was wondering if 2in blazers were better than 4in duravanes?

    Are duravanes easier to tune with broadheads?

    Thanxs guys

    I don't know how well they tune with broad heads, but the blazers have always worked well for me. Give them a shot. I am sure they work well, though, there are tons of people who use them with plenty of success.

    I use the smaller duravanes for my 3D arrows, but I would suggest going with the Blazers. As sighting in said a lot of people use them, and im sure they will work well.

    Blazers are nice, but they are very stiff. I would go to 3"(2.8" actually to meet nasp atandards) easton diamond vanes. I have no difference in drop between arrows fletched with blazers and ones fletched with diamond vanes. There is no extra win drift either. Also blazers, atleast the old ones, had a tendancy to fall off, unless glued really well.

    I would also look at the new 3" fusion vanes.

    i shot blazers and the 2" fusion vanes they both shoot good outta my rig. but i liked the blazers a little better. But this isnt a true comparison bcuz when i switched to fusions i also put a arrow wrap on and i dont like wraps.

    I dont think you will find any accuracy differences between Blazers and Predators.
    Blazers are a little higher profile sometimes causing contact issues.

    I personally use blazers. They are stiff and ultra quiet. I've never had to tune a broadhead to my bow using them, and I'm lethal out to 65 yds. They are a little higher profile, but unless you're going to be stacking 6 arrows in a single spot, they are great. Also very durable.

    Blazers have made my groups sooo much tighter since i had switched..

    And i was always confident with my shot because i knew exactly how my arrow will fly now. Get em!
