    Re: blazer vanes

    Can some one tell me what the long range trajectory of the 3 inch Flex Fletch is like. I have of recent years used Blazers, I found them to be excellent at keeping a good flat trajectory how would the two compere.

    Which Flex-Fletch vanes are everyone using for hunting? I'm using blazers right now and like 2" vanes. Would the Target or Extremes be a better choice?

    I am an avid FOB shooter but there are some archery competitions that do not allow them, so I then shoot Blazers and I like them very much. I just like FOB's better and use them exclusively for hunting.

    I have hunted with FF for many years. I used the 360's and played around with the 3inch. I run a HEAVY hevical on them, they will steer a broadhead like no other. I am going to play around with the 3inch this year. I have some nice blood coated arrows with flex fletch veins on them.

    I recently switched to the Flex Fletch SK300 (3" shield cut) and they fly better than anything I've ever used for field tips or broadheads. I checked out their site to see what the pros were using for 3d and most seemed to be using the ffp 187s so I refletched all my 3d arrows with them and they fly great. I'd say anyone that wants to use FF should read Jerry's thread on arrow building and always use the primer.

    What size FF vanes are you using to stabilize your G-K 125XLs?

    I'm curious about this as well. I have a 6.75" BH bow and will be switching to a TR Revolution soon. I don't want a vane that will make contact with my rest while the bow is at rest.

    I hear you! I hope I can keep using my FOBs, but my G-K 125XLs fly the best for me, and if I can't use them and FOBs in my ground blind, then I need vane options that will give me performance as close to FOBs as possible.

    The SK 300 was designed for todays fast crossbows, its made with the FF extreme material. In a hunting situation with fixed blade heads these vanes are excellent, as good as it gets. Even though they were originally designed for crossbow bolts they have transationed to arrows very well. SK 300s are one of the best looking vanes on the market as well.
    I have no issues in fletching any vane on the market except 1, fusions! I stopped offering them a few months ago. Cant be a perfectionist and use these vanes, they stick good but you just cant get all of the bubbles out

    I fletch with either 4 mini Blazers or 4 mini Fusions....I like how the base of the Fusions seem to stick better though.
