    The two vanes on the left are Blazer vanes. The circle one's on the right are Starrflight Fobs.

    I totally agree with you peace. There's room for all of them in the Archer's tool box. It's all about being able to choose what a person wants to shoot. Why Do Archer's bash each other for the products, brands they use?. We are too small of a Sport to fight amongst each other.

    p.s, I ordered some white Bohning nocks to go with the Pink and white Arrows in the first picture.

    Thanks for the post, i hope to get an arizonia easy fletch this fall to start doing my own. But for now I have to borrow a jig like yours from a friend. all tips are helpful, i prefer to learn from others instead of screwing up stuff myself.
    I like the idea of pink vanes, I've lost a few orange, green, and even white veined arrows in my yard, finding some months later when the grass dies from the drought. So anything to find an arrow quicker is great. I am really worried about losing the arrow after a shot in the woods hunting.

    Green is my Favorite color but my go to Color for hunting is Pink. I've tried, green, orange, yellow for pre rut hunting and I always return to Pink. It's hard to confuse Flo pink with anything out in mother nature. Guys can make fun of my Pink vanes and Fobs any day, I'm above that. I just took out the Fusions for some test shots. My back is still killing me but they shot superb. I also ordered the ZEON fusion vanes last night. Once i get those fletched up I'll let you folks know.

    p.s invest in a bitzenburger jig and you won't regret it.

    The fobs look very different. Would they work with a traditional rest or do you need to shoot them with a wisker bisket? I only own Recurves and long bows at this time, for no other reason than thats what was cheapest and available at the time when I got started.

    You can only shoot fobs with a drop away rest.
