    Test group shooting at 20 yards.

    Four 4 inch AAE vanes at 20 yards.




    Four 3 inch fusions. Some tore off already.

    I try not to group shoot too but it was too tempting while trying out 4 vanes. I gave into temptation.

    So, im nt alone wif the noise. Cheers

    I'm enjoying the four 4inch AAE vanes. They weren't noisy for me. I didn't like the fusion vane setup. I'm gonna check IBO regs on vanes. I forgot to check if there's a vane rule.

    Common sense tells me that there should'nt be any regulation against 4 fletch, but then what does common sense have to do with rules and regulations.

    Don't know how they'd work with the 90 degree spacing. I have a Bitz jig and if I were going to go with 4 fletch I'd do 75x105 spacing and use a low profile vane. But being a feather guy I won't put that much weight on the tail end of an arrow. I'd use feathers. Now that you have them fletched try checking the FOC.
