Been shooting blazer 2" quick spin vanes, work nice on the easton epic arrows. Group ontop of each other at 10/20/30/40/50 yards. I have to shoot at other places then center, cause I was busting up arrows/ fletchings. Also tried some NAP quickfletch w/ the same 2" blazers on them, work good. Only gripe they didnt space them perfectly, and some arnt glued to the quick shrink the greatest, might have to touch up with some gel superglue. O yea they also stayed attach "most of the time" when shooting threw a privacy fence.

I'm only concerned with hunting, but I run vanes, straight r offset. From there, I'd not be picky. I've ran 2 and 4" and 5" vanes. So, I can't say I'd run giant ass 5" vanes cause I just can't like those for some reason I like how blazers stick to the shaft with their wide base; I like how I can get lots of 4" vanes cheap; I like that they shoot the exact same with my mechanical broadheads. I like how thick the blazers are- they can take a little abuse. I've compared normal 4" vanes and 2" blazers to 60yds side by side with no difference in accuracy (for me, but I suck and managed to keep them both inside about 6"). There's advantages to both, I hear the blazers are better for fixed blade shooters.
