Hey guys I just got in a grayling fletching jig and it came with the option to do 3 or 4 vanes. What do you guys recommend. Pros and cons of both please.

I don't think he means size, i believe he is referring to number of vanes... I could be wrong though
You are correct. number of vanes not length

if your bh has 4 blades then 4 vanes and same for 3 blades ,3 vanes, if your arrow is set right your vanes should follow the path through with minimal speed lose.

Not true, BH's have no effect on the vanes as they are too far apart

i dont know the ibo of your bow, but if your bows ibo is over 330 , then you wont lose as much speed, and your kinetic will definetly increase, fow bows around 315 and your draw weight, youll beginning to affect your speed enough to change the trajectory of the arrow, and the kinetic energy will only slightly improve over 3 vanes. hope this helps. 4 vanes and 125 grain bhs will definetly pack a whallop in any bow with higher ibos.

the arrow quits spinning when it hits the meat, the vanes follow the direct path is the path of less resistance, and aids in passthrough in bows that dont have alot of energy or they can stop it short.

I tried 4 with 2" feathers. Compared them over and over against 3, same set-up, and found no reason to spend the extra $ on a fourth.
Maybe for flu-flu's, a fourth would slow the arrow faster, but I don't shoot them, so I really don't know.
