blazer vanes

9 posts in this topic

I just bought 12 new arrows and refleched 5 with the blazer 2". The field tips shoot fine but my broadheads are all over the place,one shot good but the others shot high. same brand heads I've had good luck with Wasp sst. the only thing I changed was the vanes. I talked to a friend of mine and he has tried 4 different broadheads and one expanible and can't get a group out of any of them. I thought the blazers were for better broadhead control.

I have been shooting blazers all summer long...they seem to shoot about the same with my FPs and my BHs (Muzzy 3-blade 100grain). Could it be a spine issue with your arrows?

My buddy shoots blazers and he loves his. If i was you i would bring in the bow to the shop and have everything checked again, such as the draw, and make sure that your arrow rest is level. Just a suggestion bc i dont know what is actually wrong, i had new arrow fleches that shot all over and i figured out that my arrow rest was not level anymore. Just a theory.

Have a great safe season guys

Blazers work great for me. Softball size groups at 30 yards both field points and fixed blade heads (baseball size on a good day). But if you are having trouble there are a lot of places that could need to be checked. Starting off I would check for contact. What style of rest are you shooting? Blazers are taller than feathers or standard vanes so you could be contacting a rest, the arrow shelf or riser, a cable, or even the bottom of your sight. This contact may or may not show up shooting your field points because the field points do not have any steering effect on your arrows. It might only become evident of small contact when you shoot your broadheads. A good thing to try is putting lipstick on the vanes or foot powder on your arrow rest and shelf. If you see streeks anywhere there is your problem. Next I would paper tune and adjust accordingly. Try 6, 12, and 15 foot distances from the paper and make sure they are all shoot bullet holes. Download a tuning guide from Easton's website. That should tell you which way to move your rest and nocking point to fix your tear. Next if you are still having trouble I would think that you may have a spine issue with your arrows. Too weak of a spine or borderline weak can show up when you shoot broadheads and not with field points again because the broadhead has a steering effect on the arrow. If none of that has helped it's probably time to make sure your bow is truly in spec. It could be your cams are out of time or a bundle of things most of which really depend on what type of bow you are shooting. You can also change broadheads, broadhead weights, and change back to feathers or regular vanes and see what helps. It's kind of like a hide and seek game. Eventually you'll find out what's wrong and you'll have no more problems. Good luck.

i had the same problems with blazers earlier. if you shoot a bisquit i personally feel that the blazer is too tall for the bisquit, slowly pull the rear of the arrow throught the bisquit once and watch the blazers fold over maybe that happens to all vanes going through a bisquit. another thing make sure your bow is paper tuned!! (i shoot G5s) the air would grab the broadhead and send it all over. Another problem i had was that i was torquing the bow a little bit, that didnt help. after i got it paper tuned i havent had any problems i would try that.

This year has been a challenging one for me with my bow. I decided to try quickspins and blazers out from shooting feathers for several years now (hated it when they got wet). Love the blazers, but found that when I put my beloved muzzys on them, one would stray too far for my liking. I was able to try different broadheads out with my new arrows and someone had me try the shuttle T broadheads which I found to fly crazy straight! I bit the bullet and decided to try them out this year while putting the muzzys to rest for now frown.gif It's hard to try different things when you are so used to using them for so many years - but it may be worth it! As far as the blazers go... shooting out of the whisker biskit which is also a new thing for me this year and love it. It will be of good use when I'm in Montana next week stalking elk!

I've been fletching with Blazers for 2years now and love them. I also just tried the 2" Quick spin hunters and they are awesome. Not quite as durable as the Blazers, but awesome flight.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
