I have been shooting blazer vains since i got my new bow, and i have liked how they held up compared to fletchings. My problem is, i had 2 vains rip in a 4 shot group today. These vains have not been shot 75 times, and look brand new.

Did i have a bad job done when they were put on, or is the whisker biscuit the source? Im really thinkin of changing to the new Octane rest from diamond. Its the one thats like the whisker biscuit, has anyone tried it?

I am also looking into the Octane. A friend of mine switched and he really is pleased with the performance.

A new one will, but once you get some shots through it it is fine. As far as blazers go I have never had a problem with them through my whisker biscuit. Try a drop of glue in front of them if it makes you feel better.

I too have been hunting with the whisker biscuit since it has been out and I have had no problem. The blazer vanes should be no trouble shooting through it. You may have had a bad fletching job. Make sure your rest and knock are lined up right. I had a loop slip a couple of years ago and my fletching was actually hitting the mount. Of course it didn't take but about 2 shots to figure that out.

Properly setup, arrows fletched right with a drop of glue in front, you shouldn't have any problem.

The blazers are actually designed to work with the biscuit, they are stiff for the biscuit and to control broadheads....

I think im gonna go ahead and get a rip cord. My groups inside twenty yards are acceptable, but once i get to 25 and 30+ they just start getting scattered.

The arrow contact videos on youtube really helped.

But i did super glue the balzer veins back together and they are fine \:\)
