Anyone use quikspin vanes? Do you see a difference in accuracy? Should I stick with conventional models?

I switched to quick spin vanes this year as I have heard so much that was good about them.I have not shot them yet.

I shot Quick spinns last year... and was pleased with the arrow flight. I will shoot them again this hunting season.

I have heard they work good but they are less durable

I was using Quick Spins earlier this year...and they seemed to work just fine. I think they do slow your arrow down a little over long distance...but not enough for me to care. I did find that they didnt last very long if shot thru a WB arrow rest..or if you shoot thru a foam layered target..the vanes get wavie. I switched over to Blazers and have been very happy. HOWEVER, I have recently seen a new set of Quick Spins that are called Speed Hunters. The look just like the 2inch Blazers but have the "kicker" and grooves as reguler Quick Spins. I also heard they are a little stronger then the original. I might give them a try.

I just switched to quickspins from the standard goldtip vanes and was impressed. I thought the quickspins would be louder going through the air, but were actually quieter. I used the 3 1/4" size.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
