Default Question on arrows

So i was kind of disappointed. My buddy has been trying to get me to switch to blazer vanes so i got some new arrows with the blazers. I shot all evening the other day and i could not get them to fly worth a crap out of my bow and i also couldnt get them to pattern worth a dang. So i went back to my other arrows with regular vanes it didnt take long and i had them shooting perfect and had them grouping awesome. Could anyone tell me the issue i could be having with the other arrows. Theyre the same arrows just different vanes. Im shooting 60#

What rest? Assuming all else stayed the same, it certainly could be fletching contact. A little lipstick on the vanes will show contact if you're getting any.

check for cable clearence. Blazers are a little taller than regular vanes.

i think i may just stick with the regular vane arrows since it is so close to season and i dont want to take a chance on wounding a deer cause my equipment wasnt working properly. But i didnt know is shooting the blazer how much more spped i would gain or if it would even make much of a difference.

Are they the exact same arrows? Same spine/length/wt?

Since the rest isn't an issue, could there be contact w/cables?

Must be a clearance issue with the cables then, unless there is a problem with the way they were put on - or you just got a bad bunch of arrows.

Im going to shoot them out of my mathews and see if they fly good and pattern good. If they dont im just going to have them re fletched and see if that helps. If not ill try and contact the company. Just dont want to go through that headache unless i have to.

I don't like them at all and don't understand the love affair except for one reason, they are short which would be beneficial to someone with a short brace and a speed bow. Still I'd only use them if the fetch hit the rest before it dropped.

High profile and a very stiff vane. Not for me. Just for fun and giggles imagine a fletch like balloons on the end of your arrow. Blazers are like that, big and bulky requiring a huge window to go through.
