I like blazers, hard to beat them.

I've shot about everything that is out there at one time or another. Blazers are good, but 2 years ago I started shooting 5" feathers again. They just seem to stablize my arrow better. But, just as FYI, all my bow stands are set-up over feeders and are 20 yards or less.

Fletch doesn't describe the material. A 2" blazer and a 2" feather are not equal. A longer fletch of the same material will stabilize faster but can create more drag on the arrow.

Bigger vanes will always stabilize your arrow quicker. They will also create more drag, and catch wind from the side. Big broadheads also catch alot of wind and steer your arrow. If you are shooting fixed blade broadheads, big vanes are your friend. I like 3 or 4 inch vanes for hunting.
