Bowtech and Blazers

6 posts in this topic

Do any other Bowtech owners out there use Blazer vanes? If you do, do you ever have problems with the vanes hitting the cables?

I use them with my Bowtech and I have no problems with vane clearance. I shoot a WB rest so I can turn the arrows so that I get total vane clearance but I don't think it would hit no matter where I turned the arrow.

I've shot a couple different Bowtechs and know at least a dozen guys who have a Bowtech- no cable contact at all. Are you shooting 2" Blazers? Not sure how the 2" Blazer could possibly hit the cables. Regardless, if you're getting contact, something is very out of tune. Suggestion- get some foot spray (something for athlete's foot) and spray your cables, rest, and riser near the rest. Try figure out where the contact is happening at. My guess is that it's not on the cables, but on the rest.

Anyway, I'm not shooting Blazers, but I know a bunch of guys who are with a Bowtech and are not having problems. I'd guess you've got a tuning issue.

I have been shooting a BowTech Guardian and 2' Blazers for the last year and I have not been getting any contact with my cables. Which way is your cocked feather positioned when yu knock your arrow? I shoot cocked feather up in direct alignment with my string to make sure I do not get contact on the release. I also shoot a Rip Cord rest to make sure I do not have any contact on my shot.

I have a problem with blazers with my Mathews. Blazer vanes do stick out farther from the shaft than other fletch, that is why they work so well. If you have a drop away rest, all you need to do to turn your nocks till you have good clearance.

I do have a drop away, so I changed the alignment of the arrow which seems to be working.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
