Default What arrow combo for Black Ice?

Hey,

What arrow and blazer or vane combonation works best for the Black Ice? Right now I am only shooting standard GT's with the vanes and I am not impressed.

Thanks

Do the blazers work better than the 4" vanes that they come with?

I shoot a Black Ice with Blazers and have great success. However, I had to change the stock cable guard as I was getting contact with the high profile Blazer and the cables. The arrow I shoot is the Carbon Tech Whitetail XP (0.400 spine) and they work great also. I did shoot GT's prior to the CT's but obviously changed. See the pic below for a comparison in performance between the two arrows. The group is shot at 60 yards.

I switched 4 years ago to blazers from 4in vanes and in my opinion the arrows fly better.

I am going to change them. I don't know how to paper tune but it was just suggested by a buddyof mine also.

The problem that I am noticing is that 25 yards and further my arrows seem to go sideways for a bit but are still accurate.
