I decided to give the 2" Rayzrs a go. I built a few and loaded up a zwickey delta which I figured would walk that arrow around like a dog on a leash.....not even close.

We've had some pretty serious wind here and I wanted to test fly some in the breeze. The 2" fly like darts and had no trouble keeping the big delta on target.


Anyone else using these?

Yes I am with great results as well. I've used both 2 inch 4 fletch and 3 inch 3 fletch as they're both fantastic. Definitely better in crosswinds and still stabilize large broadhead and fly like darts

I'm running 3x 2". I'd have never believed it.

What's your arrow setup? I've found a lot of truth to high FOC arrows working better with smaller feathers and I've seen first hand how poor 5 inch feathers do on my arrows. I'm running full length gold tip hunters with 350 grains up front for ~26% FOC. So not into the EFOC realm but definitely up there

I'm running 400 GT trads at 31.5", aluminum inserts and 180gr heads. Arrows weigh 500 grains +/-.

This is with my stalker 51#@28" longbow. I will give them a push with hatfield takedown 55# bow. They tendto shoot the same arrows well.

I was shooting 29.5" 100 gr insert and 160gr heads with 3x 5"....and they are hammers.

The 2" are certainly quiet.

I use 3 3" feathers. I use the feathers from the turkeys I kill and using 3 inch allows me to fletch a whole arrow with one full length feather. Works great even with big broadheads

I ordered some of the new trad vanes in 3 inch. Plan to try 4*90 fletch when they arrive.

I use everything. In saying this, I always find the 2” razer to be awsome. I shoot them a lot. 4 fletch. I also found that when your FOC goes above 20%, the less feather the better.

Hey guys...anybody here who bought the AAE trad vanes have a review of them? Looks like they sold out of the 3” according to their website.

I’ve run the 4 inch vane in several configurations (shelf, elevated rest, 3 fletch, 120/75 and 90 4 fletch). As well as off wrap and off shaft. I can’t seem to get them to not kick high a bit coming out, but they always make it to their intended destination, they do group with my feathers (maybe a touch high), and they are silent mid flight.
