In my opinion the best thing you could ever do for your bolts is to go with Blazer vanes. :)

Ok so if I switch to blazers 2" using a Arizona Easy Bolt Fletcher. When I look up blazers they don't come up as variable models only colours is that correct Woodspike?

Yes. There are no variations with standard 2" Blazer vanes... All you need to choose are your colors.

Not sure how their international shipping rates are, but I would take a look at lancasterarchery.com, and wyverncreations.com

Use 3 colors, so you can rotate them to check spine..........

If you are adventurous you might look up Gateway Feathers Rayzr feather. It's a 2" feather like a Blazer. Works great and gives you a little more FOC by decreasing weight in the back.

I see lots of people talking about good 30 yard groups with blazers, but has anybody shot good groups at farther ranges?

Shot great groups out to 50 yards thats as far usually as I practice. The shrink fletch with Blazers work great also they just cost quite a bit more, real easy to apply and you don't have to buy a jig.

The best I've done was 5 into 1" at 50 yds, not fletched w/ Bolt rather an AZEZ rt hand helical.

Not sure how much adjustment there is in these vari-zone scopes, but if the weather holds out today I'm hoping to zero the scope around 40 yards, and see how far I can stretch it. Will post a couple pics if I end up with decent grouping.
