NAP new 3.12 & 2" hunting vanes
Posted 17 July 2006 - 07:45 AM
These newer vanes are smaller and lighter than their 4" quikspin and would like to try some out and was seeing the response you all have about them.

Last week I tried the 2" speed hunter quikspins out on six GT Pro Hunters 5575 and they can hunt for me. I put them on with right helical over wraps. The glued really easy and fast.
They do as good a job as the 2" Blazers vanes and maybe better to control a fixed broadhead for me. Now this is around 290 fps out my Bowtech Allegiance and 280 fps out of my mathews Switchback with Razorcaps broadheads. Razorcaps are fairly long head but don't plane with these vanes.
I give a 4 out 5 and I'd rate them higher if they didn't cost so much being there around $19 for 36.

Shorter vanes stabilize faster arrows BETTER.
The reason I think this is so, is that the shorter vanes are less likely to "turb out" at higher speeds than the longer ones. What I mean by this is that at speeds >280fps a long aggressively helical vane will fail to cause the arrow to spin because the airflow over it is too turbulent. This is analogous to putting an aggressively pitched prop on a high speed outboard. It might increase your holeshot but top end will be LOWER.

Last year I used the 2.125 low profile QS Vanes. I enjoyed them But had to try the new ones and found I didn't have to have almost erfect form to get my fixed blades to fly like my field points.
