Default Blazer or quickspin

I have just started fletching my own arrows and have had great success with the quickspin however they tend rip off, like its not getting a good stick, So i was wondering if the hype about the Blazer were truly as good as it seems?

I really like the both fletchings. I currently have arrows fletched up several different ways, w/several different fletchings. Today I am going to try Blazers w/my Muzzys (100gr, 4 blade and see how they shoot). On my line jammer 3-d arrows I have them fletched w/ 1&1/2 inch Quikspins and they fly great.

I have been using blazers since January and they are really holding strong. I shoot with a WB rest and none of my vanes have came off or even started to peel away. And I usually shoot about 500 shots a week. Good luck and I think you will like blazers alot.

Default Arrow Fletching

My first question would be: What type of arrows are you flectching, and how are you doing it. Second: What do you mean they rip off; during flight, from your rest, hitting them while they are in the target or passing thru a target?

I am using carbon arrows, the Bohning Archery Fletch-Tite Platinum, and the Arizona ez Fletch tool...i dont thing that the rest is causing any damage to them (Whisker Biscuit). The glue might not be getting a good stick......Also i have fletched a few dozen arrows with feathers and dura vanes and they hold up great its just these quickspins wont stay on the shaft.

Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't think that you were supposed to use quickspins through a wisker biscuit?!?!

Default QS vs. WB

I do believe the people are right.

Before I found you were using the QS/WB combo, I was actually wondering if you were preparing the carbons/aluminum correctly. If not, this will also allow them to "rip" off. I am assuming you are putting a drop of glue on the front and back of the quills.

Referring to Post #3 Blazers and the WB rest are like peanut butter and jelly. They are a great combination. As for quickspins and the WB I do not have any experience with those vanes so I am not sure if that could be the problem.

I am saying PB&J is where it is at. You my friend may need to just start shooting from off the shelf. That would have to be better than that drop away thing you use. As for jelly and cream cheese thats just nasty. PB and bananas is ok though.

Hey Frank, now have you ever tried cream cheese and jelly?? Dont knock it till you try it. Trust me it really is good.


Texasbow, I have a feeling you are really going to like the blazers.
