I thought they were absolutley silent too...I've always been a big proponent of blazers, however they do make a buzzing noise from my bow and 2 of my buddies who shoot faster than me I shoot 308 fps....We all confirmed that they do make a buzz. Now if I can get a quieter arrow with these predator vanes and not lose the great flight of the blazers Im switching..still waiting on them to arrive.
Im shooting a RH helical blazer on a 386 gn axis arrow @308 fps.
My other buddy (Steve) shoots a straight fletched 300gn blazer arrow @ 328 FPS
Dave shoots a 350 gn maxima w/helical blazers and gets 335 fps.
All arrows have been listened to many times downrange by each of us and we can all hear a noticeable buzz. However the arrows are so fast it may not really matter in the end. The one thing we can all agree on is that if we can find a quieter vane and not lose "blazer" flight we'll switch to gain any possible advantage in the field regardless.
