Bowtech and Blazers

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.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
