Flex-Fletch Vanes have been around for many years. In fact, we were the first all-weather flexible vane on the market that could be glued to any shaft. We have been making our vanes for over 35 years. In this case, “The first is the best.” Here are a few good reasons why your arrows should be sporting Flex-Fletch vanes:
Flex-Fletch Vanes are the only vanes that can withstand the constant abuse of tough weather (rain, snow, high humidity) and shoot-throughs. Flex-Fletch has unsurpassed Memory. How many times have you walked up to the archery butt and found one or more of your arrows buried all the way up to the vanes, or even worse, feathers and thought, “Well, that one is shot,”? With Flex-Fletch vanes you won’t have to worry. Just grab whatever is sticking out from the front and pull it out. Or, if it’s too far in, pull it right through the butt. If it’s glued on properly you’ll just pop it back in your quiver without a second thought. When you’re back on the line and ready to shoot, it will be too! Outlasts other vanes 4 to 1!
Flex-Fletch Vanes are flexible. Oh sure, others are too, but there is a difference. A big difference. As you will read, many vanes on the market today are too flexible. Even rubbery you might say. That isn’t good when it comes to arrow stability, and here’s why: When your arrow is leaving the bow, it bends, (arrow paradox) then it will try to right itself as it sails through the air. The guidance system (vanes, feathers) take the brunt of this. If those vanes are too rubbery, they act like bad shocks on a car, taking a longer time to stop ‘bouncing’. Flex-Fletch Vanes however, dampen the arrow oscillations and result in quick stabilization of your arrow and end up giving you tighter groups.
When it comes to arrow flight, vibration and flutter of the vanes or feathers is bad! Vibration causes drag and slows down your arrow. (Nobody wants a slow arrow, do they?) Flex-Fletch vanes have been wind tunnel tested at high speeds (282 fps) with zero vibration. None of the others we tested could even come close. We will post our new findings when we test again in the future, at higher speeds.
Flex-Fletch vanes are deadly silent in flight.
Our Flex-Fletch vanes are the most precision vanes available. Stand one on it’s base on a flat surface. You’ll notice it stands straight up. Even on its small base. Try it with some other brands and you’ll likely notice they all seem to lean a bit in different directions. The ultimate effect is the real spacing between your fletched arrow.
Weigh them and measure them, you’ll find they have extremely rigid tolerances.
