I would think you would have asked that before you ordered them.

They are just like any other blazer except for the shape. All in all, good vanes.

SH is a rather wry fellow....but typically to the point.

Just plain love the Shield cuts.

I used them on some .414" diameter arrows and they flew great. Best run for Indoor 3D was 6 wins in a row.
I use the 1 3/4" on .350" diameter arrows and they fly great,,,even fletched backwards - X ring accurate out to 35 yards....

2 1/4" shot through truck liner, twice.

I used them for a long range setup and they performed great (Field points and mechanical practice heads ). They look sweet too.

Good vanes. I use them for 3D exclusively. They work really well on a small diameter shaft with a 2 or 3 degree helical.

Put those vanes on a 4 fletch configuration and you will love them. I run a 1.75 x3 4 fletch with micro diameter for field and they are king. Cheers!

they are nice go on easy, but certainly not very durable when compared to vanes like FF, but you also get 100 Bohning for the price of 39 FF, general usage you will be fine

I use the 1.75” for 3D they are stiff and get holes/tears in them if you shoot groups. But they are lightweight and do enough steering for a well tuned setup.

I’ve used 2.25 shield cut for everything the last couple years and they have performed awesome. Love em.

I use 3 fletch on my 3d target arrows, however I use 4 fletch on my hunting arrows and am able to get fantastic performance with fixed blade broadheads.

They are slightly lower profile than a blazer but have a little more surface area to make up the difference in steering.

Also, they hold up really well with no change in shape. Personally I’ve not been a huge fan of blazers and have had issues with them slightly curling on me over time depending on how they are stored or in the case. Never had that issue with the shorter shield cuts.

They are a good vane. I prefer Q2i Fusion X ll vanes after trying both.

I have used them and like them in a 4 fletch configuration for 3D and mechanical heads. They're great if you're having clearance issues. I stick with standard blazers for fixed blades mostly just for the piece of mind.

I've been using them on my indoor 2315s. No complaints.
