    Default Vanes - Blazers or ?

    I'm going to be fletching my own arrows soon, just picked up an Arizona EZ-mini. Been tearing up my vanes on the Gold Tips I am shooting that came pre-fletched. Those arrows have the VaneTec vanes, been looking at putting on Blazers. I know there are other vanes out now that some people like, just wondering what everyone thinks.

    Can't say a bad thing about Blazers at all. There's a reason that most every arrow manufacturer uses them. Inexpensive, and they work well. Vanetec, Martin Fury, and a few others are just copies of Blazers, so obviously, they are doing something right.

    Mini blazers. Got them cheaper and like them. I do not think they fly better or worse than others. I just like them. Durable, small with sufficient height.

    I have just started experimenting with Vane-Tec lo profiles. Blazers were OK, but kept contacting the arrow shelf due to their height.

    I am a fan of Quickspin 2.25, but they are no longer made

    I've not tried the others but have no complaints with the Blazers. Easy to work with, durable and fly as good as anything I've used.

    No one has mentioned Norway 'Predators', not quite as tall as a Blazer, so they have more clearance, and are only $8.99 a 100 pack from Lancaster Archery.
