1. I've done a lot of research about vanes and I keep seeing Flex-Fletch vanes mentioned. What makes them so good and why can't I find them in Bass Pro or Cabella's?
The secret is the material, Flex-Fletch uses a secret thermo-set polyurethane resin formula as opposed to the others thermo plastic. Our thermo set system creates a far more durable vane than extrusion. By compounding (adding our own special components) our formula these resins combine in the molds to create one of the worlds most resilient polyurethanes. All our vanes are produced in-house nothing is contracted and it stay here in the USA. Second, you can't find them in the big stores because we have chosen for the moment to not go the retail route. We are a small specialty company and are family owned and run. Flex-Fletch vanes are distributed world wide. This site is our own distribution center for the USA, it was created because there was a need to make all of our products available in one place.

2. Extreme Vanes, could you explain the difference? What makes them Extreme?
As simply as possible: Extreme vanes are stiffer than our original vanes. They are designed for arrows traveling faster than 300 feet per second. Visit this link: http://www.flexfletch.com/pages/ExtremeVanes-Explained/

3. I see you have some new vanes, Silent Knight. They are for crossbow but I like the look of them, can I use them on my compound arrows?
Yes, The Silent Knight vanes are made of our Extreme material, they will fly perfectly well on your compound shafts. The SK-200 are similar in performance to our Flash vanes, their weight is 4.5 grains and the Flash vanes are 4.8. SK-300 are a great all around vane. Perfect for target and also will guide a broadhead effortlessly.

4. Glue, why have more than one glue if Flex-Bond is the reiging king of adhesion?
Flex-Bond has done us well since 1984 and is a fantastic glue for fletching arrows; strong, flexible, and goes on easy without stringing, it is tough in all weather. But, many fletchers want to get the job done more quickly and with ZING! they can. When starting with Zing! Primer there's no reason to clean the vane base. Follow up with one of the Zing! adhesives and you've got Fast and Strong superglue adhesion.

5. Flex-Fletch vanes are more expensive than other vanes, are they worth it?
To use the old adage “You get what you pay for.” This really is true here. Flex-Fletch Vanes are produced using a process involving thermo-set resins. Other vanes use a thermo plastic extrusion process that, while fast to produce, it can't compete with our urethane. As I’m sure you know, quick and fast rarely produces the best result. Flex-Fletch vanes take much longer to process. The strips are molded, and require time to set and cure. The curing process takes 8 hours in itself. Once cured, the material is tough, tough, tough.

6. Will Flex-Fletch vanes suffer damage from a Whisker Biscuit arrow rest?

7. Many of the top outdoor shooters, use your FFP-187's; why?
Because of the flight characteristics and the precision with which they are made. Durability also means less equipment failure and distractions. Confidence in ones equipment is important. Flex-Fletch is dedicated to quality.

8. Why should I use Flex-Fletch vanes when other vane manufacturers make a vane that looks just like the FFP-187 and they’re cheaper?
The answer is quite simple. You summed it up in the last two words of your question. They’re cheaper. The difference is the plastic. There is no other manufacturer that makes a vane combining all the benefits of a Flex-Fletch vane. See Item #1 above for other benefits.
