Default blazer vanes?

I have everything all set up and shooting good, however im switching to a single pin adjustable sight and i had been thinking of switching from 4 inch vanes to blazers. My vanes now take quite a beating with the whisker biscit and i've heard that blazers will hold up better what is your take?
also if i switch to blazers will my bow have to be retunedto shoot my broadheads with my FPs because right now they shoot right on?

do you fletch your own arrows ? make a couple up and try them out if you can. save some originals so you still have them. I'd venture to say you'll be ok, but ya never know.

only one way to find out right ?

You shouldn't have to re-tune, but you'll obviously need to re-sight.

add just a very small drop of superglue to front of vanes where they contact w/b! I have a friend that was beginning to peel them back and he does that and that problem went away.

Blazers shoot great through my WB - just like darts

Definately Blazers if you shoot the Biscuit. They won't wrinkle like your 4 inch vanes do. However, a friend told me to take a hair dryer to your 4" vanes to take most of the wrinkle out, maybe 70% or so. Haven't tried that so can't vouch for the accuracy.

I won't ever have a WB on any bow of mine, but BLAZERS are the ONLY vane I'd ever recommend someone shoot through a WB!!!! They are far more durable, and steer my arrows far better than anything else I've personally tried, and I'm sure you can find MANY others that will say the same thing regarding both statements.

Blazers are good for WBs but if you want something far better you should try Bi-delta shark tooth vanes. It's the best vanes for WBs.I've used most of the vanes on the market today and Bi-deltas holds up the best with WB rest. They also they have a lower profile and look cool too. Try it and see for yourself.

it depends on how you want to shoot. generally the longer the vane the more forgiving it will be. on the flip side the longer the vane the slower your arrow speed. just depends on your personal preference
