Recently lost my wheels and ordered a new recurve by Lynn Harrelson, 3 more mos. can't wait. my question is I like the axis arrows and small 2inch duravanes on my old set up and thought I might try the mfx classic and rayzr 2inch feather vanes, has anybody tried this? Or I'm I thinking too far outside the box? [archer]

You would have to use an elevated rest with those vanes. An NAP Flipper II would work great.

Jason, he is talking feathers at 2 inches. I would still think you would need a good launch point, but should be able to shoot it off the shelf if you like. Frankly, I like feathers a little longer, I like to err on the side of stability, as Charlie Lamb would say 8^).

The Rayzr's shoot well. I fletched mine 4 fletch though, so it does add back some total fletch surface. The high profile and stiffness helps too.

even if my unfletched broadheads flew true out to 25 yards consistently, my arras would look nekid with itty bitty 2" feathers.

imo, longer and/or more feathers help when yer release isn't 'perfect'. i won't use less than a 4" 4-fletch.

a good course of action is to give those 2" feathers a good testing.

My Axis work great with 4" right off the shelf. I use less helical on them than larger diameter shafts. Vanes work well with them if you use an elevated rest, but the real short ones may be pushing it with big bladed broadheads.

Good luck muleyslayer. Try some extra weight out front and you may be surprised how well they fly. It sure doesn't hurt to try [goldtooth]

I shoot them that way , just add lots of point weight to a stiffer shaft and go for it. [wavey] [thumbsup]

I shoot them and they fly great. I love feathers but like to have some veins to use in the rain.

I shoot them on Easton Redlines,an love them.

Great fletch,,hold up to rain better than longer feathers,the Red ones even more so,as silent in flight as your ever likely to get with a feather.

There one draw back is they don't handle wind as well as a larger feather.

Winning or losing is not the important thing,,the important thing is how well you played the game.
