Default Vane ???

I have been away from here a long time (even forgot my old login) anyway.
I am in the need of some new arrows mine are finally beat up, some good shooting has cut up some of my fletchings along with some misses and rocks. Beeman ICS Hunters 400 - 3 7/8 duravanes right helical 100 grain Slick Trick broadheads. I am looking to get the same arrows and spine but I was wondering if the Bohning Blazer vanes or the NAP Quick spins are worth the extra cost or just stick with what works.

I shoot blazers, and love them. If you did a poll on here you would probably get 80% positive response for the blazers.

I like feathers , but have tryed both vanes you ask about

Quickspins are way too fragile

Blazers are very popular , a good fallaway rest is needed for clearance
as they stick out alot futher than stanard vanes , they are very durable .

The Blazers are by far the best vanes I've shot. They are every bit as accurate and ANY other vane or feather you could shoot. They do have a slightly higher profile but this hasn't been a problem for most folks. Try some and decide for yourself, I'm betting that you wouldn't regret it. Good luck and good shootin'

I'm a feather guy myself, but if I were to shoot vanes it would be blazers no questions asked. My arrows actually have them right now, but I will probably go back to feathers just because I like them better.

im a blazer shooter as well. dont NEED a fall away for Blazers. i hear blazers are like jelly if you shoot a wisker bisquit. i shoot blazers through my NAP 1000 2 prong rest with no problem at all. got them on a right helical and shoot cock vane down...they work...i have more trouble with 4" feathers than Blazers. guess because they took on MORE of a helical...but you definently dont NEED a fall away FYI..

i shoot dura vanes they hold up very well
i also tryed a bunch of other vanes and feathers this summer just to try quick spins 4" and 2" both worked well with feild tips but with broad heads (muzzy 4 blade 100 gr) at 40 yards they were all over i also lost some speed with the 4" feathers 4" and 2.5" both worked good with both tips and broad heads but im not a fan cuz they are louder than vanes and the extra care you have to do to hunt in the rain i have not shot blazers so i cant compare them
