Blazers with fix blade broadheads?

Recommended Posts

Rainman

I was told that you dont use fix blade BH with 2" blazer vanes by someone at a pro shop. My understanding was they were designed for Fixed blade broadheads. Anybody have any input on this? This pro shop also screwed up the cable on my new bow and denied it. They wrecked it right in front of me as I was watching them.

I wouldn't listen to them. That's what I shoot with my slicktricks and they work awesome.

Im my testing they flew muzzys great. A properly tuned bow with the right arrow is a huge part of the battle... cool

Wife and I both shoot Blazers and the arrow flight is good on both.

She shoots around 40lbs with Muzzy MX3.

I shoot around 65lbs with Rage 2 Blade.

Like DC said, a properly tuned bow and corrrect balance.

Practice is always a key.

It sounds like you were dealing with a regular rocket surgeon! wink

As was said above, ignore him- he doesn't know what he's talking about. If you do snoop a bunch on this online you'll find that there are literally thousands upon thousands of people shooting Blazers (or Blazer-like) vanes with fixed heads. That's what I shoot for elk and I've been very happy with it.

I hope you got satisfaction regarding your cable. If not, I'd be talking to a manager. If I didn't get satisfaction from the manager, I'd be talking to his/her boss...

I'd try & have them replace your cable for you and then switch shops in the future. Definitely not a technician I'd want working on my rig!

Sorry for the potential hi-jack... but I am wondering what the benefit is from moving from regular 3" vanes to blazers with fixed blade?

I am new, just using regular vanes, and honestly not even released my first arrow at a deer yet. I practice in summer, shooting field tips and also testing broadheads a bit to make sure. Is this something I should think about, or just keep shooting what I have and then progress over time as I see the need arise?... I have 60#, 28.5" draw, and Thunderheads for now. I am sure many reading this are newbies like me, and wondering similar, as there are many choices. Thanks for advice. smile

I still use the Rages some, but the last doe I shot with the 2-blade rage had a terrible blood trail despite a perfect shot, the Rage made a slit and the fascia/skin just covered it up. She only went 100 yards but there was almost no blood.

Plus I just like the security of cut-on-contact, there's no fear of mechanical failure, or bumping a blade off the o-ring before shooting, etc. Not to mention Muzzys are about a quarter of the price of Rages

BoxMN feel no need to fix what isn't broken. I switched to the blazer style when they first hit the market because I wasn't happy with the regular vanes performance they where also not holding up and tearing. Since switching to blazers I have rarely had a vane rip and I love practicing at long ranges they will steer my slick tricks straight beyond a 100 yards.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
