For as long as I have been shooting, Blazer style vaned arrows have always visibly fish tailed in a cross wind. I thought this was just normal for all arrows until I bought a jig and fletched some myself with something different. Straight or offset, factory installed Blazer style (short, high profile) vane. Fish tail all the way to the target. A three inch, "normal" profile vane with a right helical flies straight in the cross wind. No visible fish tailing. Both styles fly the same (to the naked eye) if the wind is calm. If what I'm seeing is a normal, difference between the two vane configurations, why are Blazers so popular? These are just my observations. For my use, all the Blazers have been stripped off my arrows and replaced.
