    Default blazer vane and mechanical heads

    I recently got new AAE fletch jig with 1 degree offset, and was plan on get some of bohning blazer for gold tip or eastson flatline, not decide which one but was plan on shot with a NAP spitfire maxx or edge, i wonder if blazer will give a mechanical flight better ?
    anyone has done it before ? anyone can give me review on blazer and mechanical heads.

    Although I use fixed now, I've killed many deer with blazer/ mech combo. I use a 3 degree offset.

    i not sure if 3 degree just like helical or something but the arrow rest i use right now is tri van contour and mike from mid atlantic archery where tri van make he recommend straight and offset fletch on this rest
    the 1 degree offset probably be better with this arrow rest but if anyone have a good picture of degree of offset like 1 to 3 and anyone can get some idea ..

    Arrow rest manufactures will often recommend offset fletching as it helps their rest get better clearance.

    If I am shooting a Broadhead be it fixed or mechanical I am fletching helical with all the offset I can get. I use a rest where I don't have to fletch to suit the rest

    I've been using a blazer/mechanical combo for four years now. No problems.

    ive also used blazer and mechanicals with no problems on deer. something else to try tho is i switched from blazer fletchings to twisters. the ones with the ridges on them to make them spin faster, i think is more accurate and groups better.
