    Blazers with wraps. Can't get'em off unless you have a very sharp knife.

    The QAD may work well. I will have to look into that one.

    Fine hailcall, but after hunting 30 days to get that shot, I'll take the 100%.;)

    I too shoot blazer wraps and vanes. Good stuff.:tu



    I wanted to know if they are straight fletched?

    Right offset. They seem to be flying well. Shot a robinhood at 20 yards with centershot not even being done yet. Haven't had the chance to test them at 60+ yards, so we'll see.

    I don't know about that. True, the flecting may come off, but how would that effect the wound at all? Once the broadhead makes the cut, the vanes slid in, then out. Ever see the FOB people are shooting now? The thing pops off on the hit and never passes through. Once the broadhead is all the way through, whatever is on the back of the arrow is useless and it fact causes more drag over the flesh that may cause an arrow not to pass through, one reason to shoot a FOB. And don't we want the biggest wound possible without giving away some range???


    And hailcall, some would say hunting with a compound is not hunting...

    The fletching half torn off could very well affect arrow flight. This could result in an otherwise heart-lung shot ending up in the paunch or ham.
