    blazers rock but you do need a hair of extra clearance. not to add more confusion bit the only way ive shot them is straight fletched. whats the difference with offset and helical. and does it work?

    sheep?goat?wild cattle? That's awesome! Are the whitetails pretty good size over there?

    I was shooting 4" feathers w tight right helicle. Then I tried Blazers and Quickspin vanes. I won't use another feather.

    oops! Meant to answer this. Offset is pretty much at an angle. Straight vanes @ 12 o'clock, offset @ 1 o'clock is the best I can describe it. Helicle(most use right,but can do left. Left just spins the arrow the opposite direction and likes to unscrew the field points as it hits the target)has a noticeable twist to the vanes. "rifled" like a bullet,same principle applies.the helical twist in the vanes stabilizes the arrow quicker. More twist,better broadhead flight. IMO,its not a noticeable diff for field points. It doesn't cost any more/less to have your arrows fletched helical than it does straight,so if you shoot broadheads at all,go helical

    (3) Flex Fletch FFP-360 (3.6") right helical, w/a couple degrees extra offset.

    I used AAE 4" vanes for many years, but they changed, much stiffer and heavier now, so at the suggestion of a friend of mine, who has tested about every type out there and who's background and experience I respect, finally decided to try the Flex-Fletch vane.

    They're quiet, provide excellent control and appear to be very durable...........pretty sure I've found my new all time favorite vanes in this.

    Another friend on mine also tried these a little over a year ago and has switched all his hunting arrows over from Blazers.

    they're supposed to fly pretty good from the reviews I've read,but haven't shot them personally. I also have read that some set-up have clearance issues. Idk. I'm to much of a skeptic to try them. Took me a bit to warm up to the idea of Blazers,so I'm got shoot those for awhile.

    Been using the 2 inch Quick Spins, and they do control a broadhead well. Slight right helical on them. I have noticed they tend to make more noise than most fletchings, so I've started using the 3" Fusion vanes. So far, they seem to be every bit as good as the Quick Spins, and far quieter. Not to mention, the arrows seem to hold their speed a little better at longer distances with the Fusions.
