I'm about to have my pro shop work up some new GT's for hunting season and am wondering about the Blazer vanes. Shooting a Turbotec @67lbs 28.5" with Tekan II's. Thanks for your help!

Disadvantages?

A friend of mine said he remembered something about a trade-off or downside to blazers that the pro shop mentioned, but he couldn't remember what it was. I need to refletch a bunch of arrows and I was thinking abouth them too. ATers seem to love them.

i really love the material theyre made out of................

ive punished them pretty badly and they still dont hate me for it!

nice weight and they steer a broadhead pretty nicely.

I shoot out of a Whisk.Bis. and would really like the vanes to last a little better than the 4" Duravanes I've been using. Sounds pretty good..

I've got ICS Hunters done with 4" factory vanes, feathers I fletched, and Blazers I fletched.

One is as accurate as the other, but the blazers are far tougher, and I think they fly quieter than the 4" vanes. I KNOW they are much quieter than feathers. When my buddy shoots indoor 3-D you can hear his feathers for the entire flight of his arrows. I never hear my blazers.

Blazers are good vanes....but I would go with Flex Fletch 300 swift. They are a low pro file vane that are great with mech heads. They are also as durable if not more so.

My hunting seasons are over :mad: but while I was out there sitting around camp during the day. I pulled out some arrows with duravanes and AAE speed flyte vanes. I backed off to 40 yds and let er rip :) To my amazement both of these arrows hit 5" low compared to the blazers. I figure its because of the added weight and possibly more air drag in flight. What ever the case, blazers are awesome and they steer my 125gr Stinger 4 blades well enough that I can put 3 arrows in a 5" circle at 70 yds :) I shoot a biscuit and after 100's of shots you could never tell.

fletching for arrows is really up to the person. i have shot all forms of fletching on my arrows and they have all flown just great. 3 inch low pros, 4 inch vanes, 4 inch feathers, 5 inch feathers and 5 inch vanes.

this year i had some Blazers put on a dozen 5575 Goldtip Pro Hunters. the reason i did this was to evaluate them for myself. you hear so many on here praising Blazers and i just had to try them.

so last night i shot them for the first time and i can say they work just great and they were very accurate. but i figured this would be the norm. i also found them to be quiet. i had heard they were a little noisey. i sure didnt notice them being noisey and i was shooting indoors. which you know makes things sound louder than they really are.

so i would say your GT and Blazers will be a good match. im also going to try shooting my Goldtip 30X Pros with blazers for Indoor...

Shoot Strong

Blazers have been working great for me. I don't think you would be disappointed!
