blazer vanes

Recommended Posts

sportfish

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.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up.
