Evan, I haven't shot the AAE 2.3 vanes but I honestly love the 2.6 vanes...They fletch up super easy, stick great and with some helical they fly perfect for me "or atleast they did last year"...I'll be shooting an all new set up this year so we will see have they do.I switched over to the 2.1" Fusion in 2010 and I will continue to shoot my Fusions. I am looking into an AAE 2.3" this year to "try" but those 2.1" Fusion Vanes are the S H I T !!!!! Talk about fixed blade accuracy!! It honestly improved it!
