As has been said, probably should switch to blazer vanes if ya go to the WB. The longer 4" fletchings seem to want to get wavey over time.
I shoot the Magus Snuffer SS broadheads and I don't have any problem with accuracy out to 60 yards.

I've used a WB for quite a while now - doesn't seem to be any problems regardless of the broadhead. You will lose a few fps, but well worth it imo - not loud, arrow always stays in place, etc. For hunting I really like the fact that you can let your draw down knowing the arrow will stay perfectly in place, which wasn't the case with the dropaways I tried at the shop.

Yep...makes no difference what type of head you use. I shoot Muzzy 125 gr 3 blades. Shoot quite well when I do my part.

i used a whisker bisquit then i switched to the octane hostage pro and love it, it doesnt beat up the fletchings, i also went to 2" blazers...

I had the wb on my bear charge, worked great and very accurate. Then I swapped it all onto my hoyt.. my groups were not the same... And I had accuracy at distance issues. I just switched to a QAD drop away. Thing is retarded accurate, compaired to my wb. Its contained so arrow wont fall out. And its one of the few that flip down and dont bounce up. I really think your rest depends on the bow, arrows, speed, and practice level. WB good, QAD drop away good. (price not so good)

Yeah don't cheap out on vanes, they'll tear off in a hurry.
I use dura vanes, haven't had one tear off yet.

And my groups don't open up either, I practice out to 50yds.

WB's are noisy, pron to problems in the weather and abrasive to arrows. Used one once, if I did again it would be in a specific situation set up on a bow for that purpose. I wouldn't shoot it a lot.

They depend on being abrasive to each vane equally, something happens to one and things will happen. They do hold an arrow in place.
