    Have you tried paper tuning them at distances like 20, 30, 40?

    No.

    I haven't paper tuned a bow in the last 15 years

    The vanes work well and I'm tempted to buy some more at some point. I'm hoping to try them at 50 and 60 yards later.

    I just bought some of the norway blazer style vanes. They didn't glue up worth a crap, their 3" vanes do. They didn't tune worth a crap, the 3" do. Some of them came out of the package bent. I fletched several arrows and none of them were worth a darn. 340 eastons and shooting them on the Alien.

    No, I set up the bow by eye, with the nock 12mm above centre and then walkback tune.

    If things are not right, then I use vertical and horizontal string on the target to fine tune nock and arrow rest.

    I set up my pins by shooting at my chosen distances of 20,30,40,50 and 60 yards.

    It may be a bit simplistic, but it works for me.

    Just got my free sample ofthe Zeon vanes as well. Not sure what's going on, but they don't want to stick at all. Never had any problems with any other vane before, including the Fusions, but these aren't working worth a damn. Using Superglue, and not happy with the results so far. I do kinda like the way they look though, and can see a possible benefit to them.

    Norway recommend cyno, but I used fletch-tite, as I'm old fashioned. I also gave the shafts a good clean with cellulose thinners, but did not touch the vanes.

    One of the arrows has recently unfletched itself, but it did pass straight through a thick bush, glance off one tree and land in another, so I think that was a bit of an extreme test.
