  1. Arrow fletching tips and techniques

    General Archery Discussion
    I have a bohning fletching jig that I am using and it is doing a great job. I have noticed that the vanes that I put on the arrows are closer to the nock end of the arrow than those done by the experts (Jerry at Southshore Archery). I have two sets of his that he produced for me and they are...

  5. Making cuts in the vanes to shoot them off the shelf?

    Traditional Archery
    I have seen a couple of references to making cuts in vanes in order to be able to shoot them off the shelf of a recurve, with no elevated rest. Fellow who made a youtube video displayed carbon arrows in which he had made parallel cuts in each vane, about 1/4 inch apart, slanting backward at...
  6. off-the-shelf + vanes, arrow flight problems

    Traditional Archery
    My arrows (very skinny carbons) have vanes. I've been using a plastic raised rest on my Samick Sage, but yesterday it up and snapped off on me. I decided to try shooting off the shelf, so I installed the cheap Velcro rest that came with the bow. I've read that you shouldn't use vanes off the...
  7. Fletching Arrows

    General Archery Discussion
    I already have a Helix Fletching Jig. It came with the 3 degree arms. I've read a few comments about vane degrees making or not making a difference. Can someone in lighten me on this subject and give me your thoughts on the matter. Thanks for any advice.
  8. Blazer vanes for indoor archery??

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi all, I was shooting earlier today, and I had the same shafts, 3 with 3 in feathers and 3 with blazer vanes. I felt that I was shooting much better with the Blazers, and I also felt that the Blazers were quieter and a little faster. The shafts are Victory Vx-23 shafts, with the blazer arrows...
  9. Can holes in 2 inch blazer vanes effect arrow flight that much?

    General Archery Discussion
    So I have been doing a load of shooting and two of my arrow's vanes have holes in them. I was just wondering if it can effect arrow flight that much at 10 yards. My shots today are way off for some reason, can't figure out if I just suck today, arms are fatigue or it's the holes that effect...

  11. Arrow fletching control question.

    General Archery Discussion
    As your shooting form improves and your equipment and bow are upgraded, arrows are thinner, do you still need a 2in blazer or AAE pro hunter vane to control arrow flight or can a smaller vane be used as less correction is needed because of better technique, and still be accurate? If so how small...
  12. Looking for arrow components you don't want.

    Want to buy or trade? WTB or WTT.
    I posted this last year and the response was tremendous. All the donations made it possible for each student and teacher to take home a pen that looks like an arrow. This year I will be working for two month longer with the teachers. Hopefully there are some of you who can help. I am looking...
  13. Deer Crossing Archery Vanes, Fusion-X 2.1 or Blazers

    General Archery Discussion
    I'm thinking about getting some DCA arrows and was wondering what vanes I should get. I feel like the 2.1" Fusion-X vanes wouldn't stabilize that great because they are both short and have a lower height. I could be wrong though, idk. I hunt and am starting to shoot 3D and tournaments. I use...

  16. Feathers or Vanes w/fixed Broadheads???

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I am making the switch from mechanical bh to fixed. I currently shoot an offset fletching configuration and get excellent flight. One of the bowhunting magazines had a 5pg article about helical configurations and how the flight/stability was unmatched for fixed blade heads. However, when I read...
