should blazers be fletched straight or with sum degree of offset? or does it matter being that they are so short?

Another thing that I can't figure out..Why is it that there is no cost advantage to fletching your own arrows? After looking at the price of already fletched arrows vs. the cost of shafts, fletching and glue there is no difference, plus you have to purchase a jig to complete the job.

For Blazers, suggested is not to exceed 3 degrees of offset for even with fixed broadheads. BUT, Blazers shoot great with straight (target and mechanical broadheads), 2, 3, and 5 degrees with field points, mechanical and fixed broadheads. They also shoot great with full helcal using field points, but it said they capture so much air that down range velocity is robbed.

Cost advantage of fletching your own arrows is there. Fletching arrow cost is around $2 to $3 per arrow around here - so $24 to $36. Blazers run about $15 plus tax per 100. Figure savings will pay for the glue, jig, vane removal tool, and cleaners in a short time. Plus; There is no waitng except for yourself. You can place vanes on the shaft at different distances from the nock and try straight, offset and helical as you wish. Not true all over, but some fletchers don't like readjusting their jigs or marking their clamps to suit someone.

Another excellent 2" vane is the NAP Twister - contact;
