Love em

I will never give up my feathers. They fly great, look better and I made em myself. The rain thing is a myth also. I got caught in a DOWN POOR in the Ohio Rinehart 2 weeks ago. They couldnt have been any wetter if I gave them a bath and still flew great.

For hunting vanes are the only way to go for me that way when I'm hunting in either rain or wet heavy snow I don't have to worry about the moisture absorbing into my feathers and what it will be doing to my arrow flight.

On the fence

I shoot feathers now...and have shot them for many years....but I've been thinking about switching to Blazers...probably next year. I just love the feel of feathers and feel a little bit more traditional using them. I don't have any good reason for sticking with them other than I think they stabilize great. I know, I know....Blazers or quick spins or other vanes are probably better..

I shoot both, feathers and blazers. I'll take which ever one, depending on my mood and the weather. They both hit the same out to 40 yards and both steer my braodhead the same.

Identical thought and result. I'm too lazy to go to the garage and get it, but the feather prep stuff really does a great job, water beads on the feathers like Rain X on the windshield.
