    2" Blazer Vanes Pros & Cons

    Lets hear your pros or cons on the blazer vanes.......I'm thinking about switching from 4.5" Elite Plastifletch to the Blazers. (Don't know why, just can't help myself) I currently shoot a Hoyt Alphamax 32", Radial X Weave 300's and a Trophy Taker fall away rest.

    I use the 2" fusion, same thing as blazer just different brand, the only downside is they are a little taller than a normal vane so some people have clearance issues but it isant an issue for most, i shoot a Wacem Exit 4 blade at 300 fps and they hit with my field tips out to 60 yards. They are also a stiff vane hich i think helps steer the arrow better.
    Ill give up all my hunting in Michigan for 2 weeks in the high country

    I have never come across anything negative regarding the Blazer vanes. One exception would be about 3 or 4 years ago they came out with some that had a very flat base that were absolutely horrible to fletch. That was corrected and all is good. Have shot just about every vane out there and still find myself back shooting the Blazers. Good choice IMO.

    If not for the only reason "That big silly grin". I like that you can fletch them with a helical with their new fletching jig the Helix. They seem to be pretty durable too.
