    When I bought my first bow the shop set me up with aae plastifletch 3.75” vanes. They were taken aback by how heavy I wanted my arrows (not that heavy – 491grains) and suggested longer vanes for a this.

    What’s the argument for/against? I don’t fully trust the shop so want to get some feedback. My bow doesn’t have a lot of cable clearance so the shorter ones may be a problem as they tend to be taller as far as I know.

    I’m shooting a hoyt defiant at ~59 lbs and about to order more arrows in the next day or two

    The height and area of your vane is for more stabilization if you have a big fixed broadhead you need big vanes or 4 vanes i just moved to hybrid 26. From aae archery and are awesome.

    If you are using mechanicals you dont need a vane that big to steer yoir arrow

    For indoor archery is the same if you have a point over 200 grains or 350 like many pros you need a bigger vane thats why they go with 4″ vanes

    If still not sure fletch 3 arrows with different vanes
    Take your best distance 30 yds maybe and check wich vanes gave you the best group here is a pick of mine with aae hybrid 26 cameron hanes and john duddley use them thats something
