Are the short blazers really better than the veins that come on excals firebolts?

I really can't answer that ? as i have never shot a factory arrow. I do like my 2" Blazers that are real Blazers. I got some a few yrs back in a cheap sandwich bag from BHSS. They weren't in a Blazer box & they weren't Blazers & wouldn't stick very well on my arrow shafts. Now my Blazers will come in a marked box & the Blazer logo on them!

they fly much better in a breeze or strong wind for me and with a lot of helix my broadheads fly better with them in my vortex and my sons equinox. can,t go wrong with them fletched in a Arizona bolt Fletcher.

Depends. Blazers (and Fusion) work best for me on high FOC arrows (18 -20%) and low profile (short) 4 bladed broad heads. LARGER VANES SEEM TO WORK IN ARROWS WITH LOW FOC LIKE 10 14%.FOC. Large vanes shot 2-3" more deflection in 15-20 mph (gusting) crosswind at 30 yards than 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.

Do the real blazers now own Middleton crossbows? We all may have to go back to feathers.

I doubt we will have to go back to feathers.
Blazers may come standard on the arrows for their bow.
Other than that it will be sales as usual.
