    blazers all the way! i think the quick spin adds the to the rotation so it propels the arrow faster and makes it more accurate, ive never used the quikspins but the blazers are awsome

    I heard that the quick spin vanes were a bit loud. Does anybody have any insight on this?

    I prefer 2inch blazers and absolutely nothin else. Great for feild points and same with broadheads. Ill never go back to feathers or long veins thats for sure. I too have heard that the qs are louder. I know my old 4inch veins were louder and slower to. Just my 2 cents. good luck:wink:

    I use the 4" Quick Spin ST. vanes. They have been redesigned with a plastic insert in the vanes, instead of a metal insert. I have been impressed with the durability and accuracy of these vanes. I noticed they are very quite too. Indoors and outdoors. I've used them on deer, beer and turkeys. None of them tried to jump the shot. Of course a fast bow helps too.

    i shoot a fossilized bear whitetail that is set at 55 pounds. i also shoot the blazer2" vanes with fixed muzzy 3 blade braodheads. i have only bowhunted for 2 years, and have killed deer both years. the blazer vanes are the ticket for me, i will never switch from them or the muzzys. i don't think they are loud, but the whisker biscuit i shoot through sure as heck is! i am going to get a faster bow next year with a fall away rest. i'm looking at a mission, but that is a different thread... something i will add about the balzers with a shoot through rest- they won't curl over time like any of the 4 inch vanes i have tried. good vanes!

    4" here plenty of speed to spare in my effective kill range. The quick spins are a little louder. The deer go, "What the heck ......... owwwwww!!!!" Nothin against the blazers though. I actually have a couple of bare shafts that I shoot at the range and they hit just fine, my set up is pretty tight.

    I use a 2" quickspin ST. They're great, especially at longer yardage. As far as being loud, I haven't noticed any difference.

    2314's :crazy: I remember the "broom stick" shooting days.:wink: but if they're good enough for Chuck Adams they're good enough for me.
