    Default 2 vs 4 inch vanes

    Which do you prefer? The 2 inch or the 4 inch Vanes and why?

    I use 2 inch vanes, cuz "they" told me they were better. Thinking about going to the even smaller profile ones.

    I shoot 1.5" Bohning X-Vanes. I like the shield cut ones for the old school look.

    I shoot 4 inch for hunting, just seems they work great on my setups with broadheads, good arrow flight and tight groups, no need to fix it if its not broke, i like blazers on my indoor arrows, 1.25s for the same reason, but with nibb points.

    Default 3"

    After trying almost everything out there. I have been using 3" feathers for everything. I use rh heliical. I just like them better. I think it is a good combo of speed, spin, and accuracy.

    4" will stabilize better. For shooting the smaller vanes your bow has to be tuned alot better. less surface area will take longer for arrows to fly true. Unless your tuned properly. Thats why majority shoot 4" feathers and vanes still in spots. They are more forgiving!!!

    not actually. it works with the same principles as brace height. the more you have the more forgiving it will become. I still shoot 4" feathers for spots. I had issues shooting my 3d arrows. I had a pro- tell me to swtich up and give the ol' faithfull 4" a try again. I did and scores went up alot. I was averaging 298-299 w/ 46-50 x's. I went to 300 and 50 x's. Now if i dont shoot 300 and 50+ x's. I know its time to check equipment. Consistancy is what you want. So you know where your at in the game. shooting 290 one week and 260 another can be very frustrating.. I've been there. Good luck!!! And shooting very low poundage is also a helpfull key. I shoot 52lbs. for spots. Alot easier to hold steady longer. And you wont fatigue in later rounds as fast!!

    For hunting and 3D I say 2" Blazers. For indoors I am going to go with 4" feathers. Or maybe some quickspins.
