    Default Aerovanes

    Anybody used these? What do you think.

    They use lift, like 3 mini aeroplane wings to spin the shaft, not drag. They have silent flight as well. And, they are fletched straight, and have no kicker like a quickspin. Aparrently they will spin the arrow more intensly than a quickspin with no drag. They are also stiff, so as not to distort at high speeds. Arrow trajectory is flatter too. @ 40yds, my FMJ's jumped an unbelievable 17" up, while @ 10 yds they were only 1.5" high. My pins are half as far apart, and the arrow weight is the same. Sounds like a plus for 3-D. Also, my 60yd groups went from 8" to 4.5". I like them a lot.

    No I haven't but sounds like something I need to look into. Thanks for the info.

    Hello Dorge, nice to see you over here as well. Welcome to the Martin Forum!

    Like you can see in my post, I did get some Gen. 1 vanes from the AT classifieds. So far I am extremely impressed. I am holding out till the Gen. II comes out to buy more. I intend to have them adorning my 3-D arrows, as well as my hunting arrows if they can steer a Silver Flame correctly.

    OK Dorge,

    I don't shoot vanes that often, usually because of the increased weight compared with feathers. However, I always like some new technology and don't dismiss it without having tried it for myself. I don't often ely on the inexperience of other to do my judging. So where can I buy a few of these things to try? I need the version that would be used mainly in 3D. Not interested in anything for broadheads at this time.

    How might they work off a Trophy Taker Spring Steel?

    For the record I've never shot Blazers. Not crazy about high profile.
