Default Fletching Vanes.

Hey, I was wondering what size vanes you guys would suggest I should use. Low profile or high profile. 1,2,3, or 4 in. vanes. Have any thoughts please let me know.

If shooting mechanicals i like a 2inch blazer or something similar.Shooting a fixblade you might want to stay with a 4 inch.

I'm a fix blade guy too. Tried the Rage but didn't care for them, many hunters do however.

Historically speaking, you need to reverse that. 2" for mech's, and 4" for fixed. However, as stated I shoot 2" vanes with fixed blades and shoot a lot tighter groups now. Equipment advances has thrown most older thoughts right out the window. It would be a good idea to fletch 1/2 doz of each and see which ones fly the best with a specific broadhead.
