Re: Blazers

I have shot 4" vanes, 4" feathers, 3" Quick Spin vanes, 3" feathers, and 2" blazers, fusions and feathers (Rayzr) on several differnt types of bolts. My preference is the 2" feathers and vanes fletched with alot of helical using my Arizona EZ Bolt.

Re: Spin testing = Dodgy Field tips

Dash...absolutely. It gets really clear if you put the bolts in a cordless drill and spin them that way. I have also seen the same thing with certain BHs. To me it speaks to the quality of craftsmanship.

Re: how many twist is to many

How is the POI with each string? If it's OK I wouldnt worry about it. I've shot several of the excels from new to 300 shots and do not see POI change too much, or see it change from string to string.

Re: rage bh

Shot Rage 2 blades for a few years in OH and NC and took a few deer with them. When I got a pass thru the blood trails were awesome - but on bigger deer the penetration was not good at all and I lost a nice buck because of it. He was under 10 yards and I got about 7" of penetration on a shot right b...

Re: Some Questions

You might want to do a Google search on Swhacker broadheads - specifically for some Youtube videos showing tests of many mechanicals vs that head. I've not shot the Swhacker (yet) but the video is quite revealing on some other popular heads. I've had trouble with Rage 2 blades out of a Horton Legend...

Re: Some Questions

I would notwant to sacrifice any KE when going for elk. With an Excal, using a fixed blade is no problem. I would suggest a 2" blazer or fusion vane fletched with an Arizone EZ fletch Bolt fletcher. Should stabliize anything you want to shoot. You might want to consider the Motec heads (I like the C...

After shooting several mechanicals out of a Horton Legend crossbow, I'm a fan of shooting fixed blades from my excal. I'm partial to the Montecs. But I hear good things about the shwacker and xact for people who know their sh$$t about crossbos hunting.

Re: Arrow length

I've been testing about every kind of vane you can find - and/or I can trim, cut shape and glue to a shaft. 4" fletches (vane or feather) do not perform as well for me as the 2" fletchings (vanes or feathers). Putting four 4" vanes on a bolt, would hurt your FOC a little bit, but four 4" feathers wo...

Re: DIY SKULL MOUNT

I did a few of these basically the same way as described, but never soaked it in paint thinner. Probably a good idea. I also did not use peroxide as I wanted a more natural bone look. One thing I did do was mask off the antlers and spray on a coat of clear varnish. Seems to keep everyting looking go...

Re: wraps

Hi Jody, Yes I have fletched just one fletching back onto an arrow using the Arizona EZ fletch. You just have to feed the 2 good vanes into the first 2 arms a little tricky but not that big a deal - even with feathers. Then on the 3rd arm you just do it like normal and clamp it down. Accuracy is fin...

Re: wraps

Don't use wraps because I don't like the residue on the rail, or having to replace all 3 vanes if 1 gets damaged, or the added weight at the back of the arrow. I am going the other way, using Gateway Rayzr feathers (all 3 weigh 4.2grains). Had no problems fletching aluminum or carbon with vanes (use...

Re: Got My Arrow Fletched & Ready To Go

Just curious...why the wraps? They look cool, but when I shoot quickspin/quickfletchs (the ones with the shrink wrap) out of my Vortex I get a little bit of that "wrap" left on the rail.

Re: Victory Archery VAP Voo Doo

Big58...I agree. I don't see a big advantage and maybe a little disadvantage. What happens to the arrow when the bulge leaves the rail and the only thing touching the rail is the back end. Seems like the front will fall a bit...a very little bit ....but still. I also wonder about wear on the 2 spots...

Re: Victory Archery VAP Voo Doo

Did a little digging last night and found the same stuff. I did find one guy in another archery forum that said he was shooting one arrow. Didn't see a big accuracy difference, did think they were a bit faster and thought maybe had better penetration - but he was only judging that by how far it went...
