    What do you use, Vanes or Feathers? Why?

    Vanes for me, they hold up better i think..... But i think feathers have a cooler look, with the fancy 2 color ones.

    Default Vanes

    I shot feathers for years but since shooting the new bows I have used vanes (Quickpsins). I think they add an edge over feathers. I agree the feathers looked awesome when flethced with turkey two tones and a wrap, but I have traded looks for the edge today.

    i started using blazer vanes this year and have to say i will continue to use them for a long time to come. in the past ive used 4" duravanes, 4" and 2.25" quikspins, and 2" easton diamond vanes. the diamond vanes and 2.25 quikspins are ok for target, but dont do a very good job with broadheads. the 4" quikspins shoot alright with broadheads, but i felt like they were robbing the arrow of speed, especially on longer shots. the blazers are far and away the best vanes ive used, especially when it comes to broadheads. they stabilize broadheads just as well as a 4 or 5 inch vane, but a crosswind has little to no effect on them at all. shoot blazers, you wont be disappointed.

    I'm using the blazers at this time, they are great! In the past I shot 4" duravanes. I will be trying the 2" predator vane by duravane(they look like blazers but thinner.

    Feathers hands down:

    Faster, size for size than vanes; 2" groups, or better at 20 yards, of course form has a lot to do with it. Haven't had to re-fletch since 2000, even beaten up and 30% of feathers missing they fly great. 25 yards or less they even fly great in a thunderstorm, found that out by accident, hair spray helps some.
