    Vanes ...let's hear it.

    Let's talk vanes, BUT for a very specific application.

    Tell me what vane, brand, style and size you have had good luck using to steer a large profile fixed blade broadhead. Also on the flip side of you had poor results with a specific vane with those style heads I want to know that as well.

    Vanes ...let's hear it.

    5" shield cut feathers fletched helical make my magnus bullheads fly great. That's about as large a profile fixed blade as they come.

    Other than that. For several years now I've used Blazers fletched with an helical EZ mini and several heads have flown good. Nothing big though.

    I had no problem with 2"RH offset Predators shooting GK125XL's. Changed to Raptors, haven't shot any large fixed blades with them yet.

    I've tried quite a few different 2 inch vanes.
    The blazer shaped ones seem to work the best most times. I'm using the vantec version now. Qad exodus and slick trick fly great with them. They glue up the best for me.
    I tried sk300s. They were a $$$$$ to glue and didn't fly any better. This spring in going to try some aae lower profile vanes in a 4 fletch just for fun.

    Well it looks like Blazer style vanes are the consensus.


    Anyone use any shield profile blazer height/ style like AAE Maxhunters?

    I've tried the AAE Max hunters. I liked them, but they are not as durable as the Blazers. Also tried the AAE 2.6 once they buried up in the target they are done. The Blazers never wrinkle up in my experience with them.

    Thank you!! But I think I have a package laying around. I am going to try them vs Blazers vs AAE with broadheads. See what works best at 50-75 yards. Going to be tossing big 125 grain solids with .5 bleeders at a moose so I want to see what if anything works better.
