    Hi All, I've been using Trad Vanes since they were first available and have taken them on 2 hunts so far. I hunt in a lot of wet weather and was really excited about these initially but, overall, my results have been mixed and I'm sticking with feathers for now for most of what I do. For...

    I walked into an archery shop while traveling and saw this gentleman apply vanes to a arrow with a Bitzenburger jig. He would put a bead of glue on the vane and press it on to the arrow hold it for a few seconds and then unclamp the vane turn the arrow and put on the next. I didn’t have the...

    Thinking about trying some vanes as wondering what would work the best and also what rest you are using. Thanks Walker

    For hunting with a springy rest and Target with a springy rest? I am running either big threes or single BH's.

    Hey all you passionate people :)) I have a little question for you all. Ok. Sure i could go and buy 2 risers. One with the traditional rug rest and the other riser equipped with a arrow rest for vanes. But i would love to know if i could just buy a good arrow rest that can do the job for both...

    My Gaspro vanes are getting busted. I know the shafts are on stiff side. Is this due to stiff arrows or something else?

    Do you mount them off set or straight? just to make sure I got this down if you do mount them off set...... and you have a right wing vane, the front of the right wing vane would be off set left or right off the center line looking down the arrow from the nock?

    If there was money ever well spent it was on these Beiter wing holder 1&3/4". Trying to hold the Kurly vane and get the double sticky tape on it. In the right place and mounted correctly is hard if you have five thumbs. The Beiter wing holders have two pins the guide the placement on the...

    A few months ago I spent some time looking at vanes. Lots and lots and lots of vanes. Long story short, I left with the idea that it would be interesting to incorporate some of what I saw in vane design into feather fletching. Something lighter than vanes. Something that could be shot off the...

    I want to experiment a little bit with these vanes. But I have a question or two. Do you mount them straight or is offset better? Are you using them on your hunting setups? If so what brand of broadhead seems to work the best for you. Thanks Fellas, steve

    Has any tried the NAP spin vanes already attached to heat shrink tube. You just put it on a arrow and dunk 10mm secs in boiling water?

    Wow, could not be easier to get perfect fletches. I have only shot a few but it is looking really good so far. Clearance is great as is arrow flight. We will see about grouping when I get re-tuned. Rasyad

    I'm going to try some AAE Max vanes and was wondering what adhesive would be the best for carbon shafts. I've never used a plastic vane before and only have the standard Bohning feather adhesive. Was also wondering if it's best to clean the vane base with alcohol or even sand the base lightly...

    I am interested to know what length vanes you guys use for 3D and field. I have experimented a bit now and have 2" high profile vanes fitted now that seem to work ok but what is the normal route to take.

    OK - I just bought a dozen XX75 Easton arrows. The cock vane is pointing either directly down (perpendicular to the shelf) or pointing towards the 11 o'clock position upwards depending on how I nock the arrow. I'll be shooting off of a Bear Weatherest. Shouldn't the cock vane/feather be...

    Hi All, I've been using feathers up to now. I love the 'look' but I just got some new shafts and I'd like to try plastic fletch. I was looking at the AAE plastifletch target vanes in the 2" size and the low profile 3" Flex Fletch vanes. Anybody have experience with these? How...

    Is there an optimal orientation for the arrow nock if shooting with plastic vanes off of an elevated rest? I am shooting 2016's that came fletched with vanes and the cock feather up at the 12:00 position. I seemed to achieve the best flight with the cock feather down? I know that I should...

    Anyone ever shot one or the other of these with broadheads. What are your opinions? Any tuning problems? Thanks. Tony

    I tried to use some 3 4" vanes on my arrows instead of feathers because the feathers were making noise. I really like the vanes but noticed that my arows seem to hit about 6 - 8" lower and drop faster with the vanes at 20 yards. The arrows were 444 grains with feathers and now weigh 457 grains...

    What is the formula to calculate surface area of a vane or feather? These are not circles or rectangles, etc. And I cannot easily break their shapes into a combination of easy to measure shapes. What I want to be able to do is to determine how low I can make four-vane/feather fletching and...
