    So the last time I fletched anything with my bitz, it was 4" feathers with max right helical.....I was wondering why I was having such trouble putting on those blazers....live and learn! I managed to do it, but it was a pain putting all that helical in a blazer! Hopefully they will fly well or I will have to replace those beautiful new wraps! :doh: I just know they are gonna fly like crapola...don't you hate it when you do something stupid like that!

    It's been awhile since I fletched blazers with my Bitz, but I think I locked my lower index knob all the way to the left and then got down to eye level with the arrow and rotated the top knob until I got full contact with the base of the vane and then locked it.

    I put a good amount of helical on my Blazers with my bitz. I just line them up so they lay flat without glue by sight, then glue them on and have had great results shooting fixed blade heads. Here is a pic maybe you can get an idea of the amount of offset from, one shot at 30 then 40 and finally 50yds. Check out the top right arrow white fletch.

    Thats the third insert since it was new, the first vitals, the others were loose layers. You have to be a bit careful, there is a steel tubing to keep the shape in the neck, leg, belly and the back. If you are too far off you get a busted arrow, makes you a better shot and shows you what your real range is pretty quickly.:biggrin1:

    It has seen a lot of broadheads in it's day, not just from me but a few friends and family also. Anymore I just shoot fld. pts. until a couple of weeks before hunting season.
