    Default vanes, feathers, blazers ????

    I am going to buy some carbon express maxima's. I shoot fixed broadheads (slick trick) and am not sure what to fletch them with. I see blazers have become very popular, but am wondering how they stablize a fixed head. I have used quickspins for years and like them, but you cannot helicle them and I am willing to try different stuff. I am even thinking feathers cause you can use an agressive helicle for ultra stablization. I might just fletch 4 arrows of each and see what fly's best. Waht do you guys think???? Has anyone tried all three????

    Blazers are specifically made to stablize fixed blade broadheads. Their extra stiffness and higher profile accomplish that with ease.

    I have used them for years with many different heads with great flight.
