Thinking about going with 3 inch Bohning x-vanes for hunting. What's everyone else using?
I’m using Flex fletch
Flex Fletch Sk300's
TAC Driver 2.75 in a four fletch configuration.
After using Blazers since they first came out, I recently switched to AAE Max Stealth. I never had any issues with Blazers, but wanted a little lower profile.
I’ve been really into Vanetec lately. I’ve got a massive pile of vanes sitting around and definitely don’t need more but Ive been buying a few different Vantecs. The 2.25” Swift HD has been awesome. Stiffer, higher profile for broadheads and very silent. I’ve used some of the Swift 2.88 and the standard height Swift 2.25 as well.
The standard Swift is a 3D vane but in a 3 fletch it does a great job of steering Magnus stingers right with field points to 100 yards.
Norway Fusion's on this end. They adhere better with a wider base. I use the 2" ones. They make 3" ones too.
I’ve tried many different vanes and feather fletch. Have not found one that’s noticeably better than others . They all work well. I use mostly 4” three fletch feathers.
“I never had any issues with Blazers, but wanted a little lower profile “. This is where I’m at. Going down in bow poundage and building some heavier arrows with higher foc ,brass insert and fixed bh. Thought maybe the 3 inch would get better flight.

I've been using AAE Max Hunter vanes for years. I switch 2yrs ago to AAE Max Stealth they are quieter and broadheads fly like darts. There just a little heavier the the Max Hunters.
A lot of people Rave about the Q2i vanes
Ermine you’re correct... shooting them in fusion 3” version and so far am impressed. Very quiet and spin like crazy with a lot of helical. My fixed heads are flying great with them and the new micro shafts.

Shot TAC vanes this year, 2.75's and 2.25 drivers. Lighter than most other vanes of the same size with great memory. I'll use them until i can find something else i like more.
