I have been shopping different vanes, and this morning I received an order of vanetec vanes this morning.

First impression: I was surprised how rubbery or flexible they are. So, my first question is would this be a good thing or not? I’ve always used feathers or Blazers, but looking for something with a lower profile to help some clearance issues.

So, now I’m wondering how well these very flexible low profile vanes will fly, especially with a BH? And, how these will hold up through a whisker biscuit?

Any of you have much experience with these, and might be able to help me answer some of these questions before I use them?

I've always shot Vanetec 2 1/2" on my GoldTip Pro's. Recently I got a dozen shipped to me that had Blazers on them and they shoot about identical, in fact I can interchange them while shooting and they perform the same.

Vanetec HP's here. Look into better rests if you are having contact issues.
