Never had trouble with the cables, but I know I was never able to shoot fat arrows with any high profile fletching like Blazers or Quickspin Speed Hunters as they would often contact the riser, somtimes on both sides.

Had Blazers glazing the riser of my ProElite - took a bunch of shots to show it. Center shot was perfect, but every so often something wasn't quite right. Lower profile Bohning X vanes eliminated that stubborn to find "not quite right."

thanks guys, why dont bow mfg think of these things, arrow clearances with cables and risers when they are designing them? they know guys shoot fat arrows and blazers are a option just seems if just a little more thought when into the process alot of problems could be eliminated.

Mine looked exactly like the pic posted. Good center shot and good paper tune, but high profile vanes left a rubbery residue on the riser after many shots (only with 2613 shafts, my 2314 shafts never had this trouble). Also, I noticed that I would have random, unexplained odd arrow flight when I knew darn well it wasn't me that caused it. I switched to regular profile vanes (4" Flexfletch) and the issues vanished.

How about shooting a TARGET vane for TARGET archery :wink:

The Blazer is a hunting vane and designed to stabilize a broadhead...it doesn't take much to stabilize a field or target point.

It never hurts to have extra stabilization on a super stiff shaft like a 2613 that you will never properly spine out anyway. Just my $0.02.

My 3" feathers on 2613's barely touch the cable. I guarantee full size blazers are too high profile to clear the cables.

You're better off with minis

Check your rest, make sure its set properly

I shoot Mini Blazers on fatboy's on my Pro elite with no problem.
I shoot mini blazers with Gold tip pro 22's with no problems at all out of my ultra elite! It may more of a problem with your rest then the vanes!
