Default Vane Selection

I recently was asked by a friend why I shoot feathers and not vanes? I couldn't answer this question because I always shot feathers and so did my father. I have noticed after watching the Pro's on TV and the guys on the ranges they use vanse some are as small as an Inch maybe and other around 3 inches. If i was to switch to vanes in the 3" how much of a difference would that make if im currently shooting 5" FEATHERS. Like more speed Kenitc energy things of that nature?

Feathers are known to be quicker than vanes. Also if you shoot a standared 3 in vane compared to a 5 in feather it will affect your broadhead flight. You can shoot a blazer vane if you can get them to stay on your arrow.

Some people say Feathers are faster than plastic Vanes...I think they get up to speed faster and dont really see any increased speed...I think Feathers are more forgiving than plastic Vanes...Vanes may be more durable over time but I still hunt with feathers even in the rain,I have never had a problem with them..
