Since their inception I haven't like them. I have my own fletching jig and enjoy personalizing arrows. However I was in the local Gander Mountain yesterday and happened to see them with Blazer vanes. They were 24.99 for a pack of six. Certainly someone has to be kidding. That's $50 a dozen for fletching. And if ya mess up one you have to replace the whole works. Tell me I'm old and out of touch, but I can buy enough vanes and glue to do my own for the next twenty years just for that $50. Just how gullible are we consumers going to get?
