Default Flex fletch vane for outdoor

Trying to decide on a good FF vane for outdoor. Most likely Lightspeeds 3D selects or GT 22's.

Been using ffp360's on my hunting shafts and been very pleased.

Thinking about ffp310's? What do you think?

Never used'em. What's the advantage?
We use Blazer 1.5", or the Bohning 1.75" X-vane. Remains to be seen how DW's A/C/C 2L-04's perform with either. Was gonna use micro-Blazers, but they aren't made any more.
I'd like to try some spin-wings, but I don't see how they'd pass through the rails of a NAP-3000 rest without contact.
So many fletches, so little time...

I'm using FFp225's this year for field and FITA... for 3-4 I'd go with FFP250 on a Pro 22

They are very durable, consistant, quiet, and they group very well. Only draw back is that they do take an extra 5 seconds to prep over other vanes.

Thanks Javi, I'll give it 250's a try.

Would you recommend fletching them w/ a helical or just offset?

I'm happy with the 310's on my indoor and 3d arrows.

Very durable with no clearance issues, they fly a tuned arrow as straight as anything out there.

I put em on with a slight off set.
