I have to admit I was sceptical of such a small vane's claim that it flew well with broadheads.

Earlier this year I had tried some with 3 fletches and 3 degree offset which flew great for field points but not so great with broadheads.

So I gave up on them untill someone told me to try helical so I tried a 3 fletch with Helical and had good broadhead flight out to 35 yards. But at 50 they were planing a little low(8inchs)....so once again went back to feathers.

Then tonight I tried some I fletched up with 4 fletchs and as much helical as I could get on them with my Jojan....

All I can say is WOW....Broadheads are hitting bang on out to 60 yards with my field points. I even shaved off a few vanes.

NOW the big decision....Feathers or Blazers which are both working GREAT???.:confused:

Both the Bohning Blazers and the newer Predator Vanes from Duravanes are awesome. I just don't see much of a reason for most folks to shoot the much longer traditional type vanes these days???

Ive been hearing nothing but good things about htese vanes.

But if a 2" vane flys good on a shaft, A 4" vane can only make it better. Right?

Not necessarily.It's all about applying drag to the rear of the arow and rotaion(which comes from the offset or helical).The blazer achieves the same drag as a 4 inch long vane because of it's higher profile and it's stiffer than most vanes on the market.I will be using them.That being said I still get a tad tighter groups with 4" feathers.I just hate fooling with trying to waterproof them.
