    Probably more personal perference than anything. That and clearance issues.

    I've tested quite a few 2" vanes and found they all get the job done. I perfer 2" Blazers, but NAP Twisters are a near duplicate.

    i second that. if you look at it, the blazer widens towards the viewing eye. So it is on correctly. Probably just the angle of the arrow and the angle at which the photo was taken.

    I've shot Blazers for several years, but switched last year to NAP Quick Spins for better broadhead stabilization. They group extremely well, but do have bit of in-air noise. Trying out some 2 in. Fusion vanes now, and I'm liking them alot. Good stabilization, and quiet. Getting as good of groups as the NAP's as well.

    Did some indoor practice with a couple guys last Monday night, one of them shoots Blazers, and the other has both Blazers and Flex-Fletch FFP360 vanes (3.6") set in a heavy offset helical , a few of each with same type/size arrow

    Those bows were shooting in the 250-265fps range. While shooting it was very quiet and we could hear both Blazers lightly buzzing thru the air. Started joking that a deer/elk would think he had just been stung by a really fast pissed off wasp/hornet.

    Guess I'm still old school preferring 3.5" to 4" helical fletched vanes....and also currently using Flex-Fletch FFP360 in a slight extra offset helical
    FYI: the guy with both Blazers and helical vanes gets very accurate/similar groups with both, but the Blazers do appear to hit 1"-2" higher at 40yds.
    When he goes to fixed blade broadheads, he has tighter groups with the larger helical vanes

    you wont ... but down range someone else can tell.

    Our target sit's over buy a buddys house (2doors down)
    for the longer shot's we end up in the middle of our rd, my point is Some times a few of use stand off the side in a safe Zone on the side of shooting lane ( no where near harms way)
    I can tell when the son in law shoot his vs others...always new when the blazer went by

    want to test this fact... stand behind a tree or corner of building have some one shoot you will beable to tell too.....does it matter ? umm doubt i could get outa the way fast enough..and I know lots of deer /elk that failed too
