You can checkout Ikesoutdoors on Youtube. He gives a review of Fusion and Duravanes I think. I only have experience with the 2 inch blazers which I have really good luck with.

Fusions do not stick well unless you use a certain glue. I myself have not used them but my son has Arrow Splitter. I will stick to Blazers.

Blazers have the lower profile. I tested them a ways back. Pretty sure I still have it in one of my arrow boxes. No problem sticking, but Bohning Platinum wrinkled the Fusion base a bit, but still good for flight. I also tested the Zeon Fusion and same thing, wrinkled the base a bit.
Checked my Photo Gallery and have pictures, but nothing that would show the slightly higher profile to the Blazer.

I went with 3" Fusions for a lower profile for hunting, they are .45" high; the 2.1" Fusions are .56" and the 2" Blazers are .568"(from their websites). The bases do wrinkle a little but no problem with adhesion(even after pass throughs), also using Platinum for glue. Getting good flight with broadheads, no reason to change for me.

reason i ask is coz i has vanetec and it plain touch cable string and irritate the arrow to see how it go and seem too longer profile i ever see now this time need to change the fletching to low profile but i dont know if cable rod with slide is way to far or need to find a slide with a short that aviod contact between fletching and cable string

If you can, just rotate your nocks slightly to get better clearance. The cock vane doesn't HAVE to be straight up or down depending on what rest you are using.

I agree with Ehunter, if all you're looking for is clearance and you're using a drop away, you can rotate the nocks and set your cock vane any way you want. For consistency, make sure they are all oriented the same though...

As for Duravane vs. Blazer, I have used both with good success, and as Sonny said the Blazers have a slightly lower profile. :)

I've used both Blazers and Fusion (Neon's). Like Ehunter said just rotate vanes slightly to the right for cable clearance. I've had some clearance issues and one of the fixes with the rotating vanes was to replace the stock slide with a Saunders Hyper glide which brings the Cables in closer to the cable bar. I use the Fusion Neon's vs. blazer currently with AAE glue and have had few issues. You need to insure that you clean the vane with 70% or better alcohol and prep the shaft. How I prep shaft is to insure that the old vane and glue is removed by scraping off with a razor blade or vane removing tool. I slightly sand and use alcohol and let dry. I like the Fusion as I can see the fletching really well compared to other that I have used. They are stiffer also.

I'll have to check. I thought they were Fusions, but possibly I was thinking of Vantec. One of the two I had turn my arrow to give clearance and the Blazer didn't have to be turned.

Norway Fusion 2.1" I think there cut a hair lower then the Blazers, not much. They shoot great with my heavy arrow set up.

Yup, w a drop rest, turn the cock vane out. No clearance issues. You only have to run w cock vane down w a prong rest that some old folks use...
