I have went back and forth between feathers and Blazers vanes for a few years now , but recently while practicing in a stiff crosswind that is common in the Midwest , I got tired of watching Blazers kick off to the side in the wind .
I got out a few feather fletched arrows to shoot , and what a difference it made. They shoot like darts , even in a crosswind . Tightened up my groups big time !
I ended up re fletching 8 arrows with feathers . Yeah they are a little noisier , I have to treat them with dri-fletch , and they can be somewhat less durable than vanes , but the forgiveness far outweighs any disadvantages .
Not wanting to start up the tired old debate of feathers vs. vanes , just happy with them and thought I would share my experience with them .
