    I use Arziona vanes and have for years 2.8 lenght I have had great arrow fight with these, I wish we and all these inovations when I was younger ,I am 55 been shooting since '73'. There are several out there so here is my favorite. I use a denaturated alcoholo,sp, to clean the shafts frist. also I tag both ends down with a touch of glue. my Pappy n law taught me how ,He use to do it when they did'nt have fletchers and would hold them in place with thier hands till dry, Now that s dedication. You can also plug your shafts on both ends and float them in the tub and find which side is the heaviest , it will be on the bottom under water,mark it and use that side to put you cok feather on. matched set every shot. Hope this helps, Holy Smokes

    I have my arrows fletched with 2" blazers. They are Gold Tip UL Pro Xcutters and I use them for both indoor and 3-D. I had quickspins on but the blazers do just as well at far less $$$$$$$

    At the present time I'm using the blazers. prior to switching I used the duravane 4" vane.

    Radar, are you using the duravane "predator" vane? If so how do you like them? I had some that I was going to use but the wife liked the colors so I had to fletch her arrows with them. That was almost a month ago and she has not even shot them.

    No they are not the predators, just regular duravanes 3D.

    I use Blazers for hunting and 3D. I switched to them a year or so ago and they helped my groups. I can switch between my 100g field points and NAP Spitfire mechanicals with no bow adjusting at all and my groups don't change.

    Now I don't know if that's a trait of Blazers or a trait of the Spitfires or a combination of both.
