I was having the issue with my arrows fletcher the same. My brodheads kept hitting low out past 70 yards. When I called annihilator the owner answered answered explained that it has to do with how heavy the Max Stealth is. He suggested I move the vanes back toward the nock a little and so far that has seemed to help. I don't think you need more vane. I think because of how the air flows over the broadhead too much vane actually becomes a problem and creates extra drag.What is everyone using for fletching with anhilators? I for the life of me cannot get them to fly well with my aae max stealth vanes. My bow is tuned, bareshaft at 20, 30 and 40 yds for as well as I can shoot they hit within 3-4 inches and line up with my fletched arrows, I've even shot one out to 80yds and it hit within a pie plate of where I was aiming and my fletched arrows, not something I normally can pull off but that day I was shooting very well and it was probably a one off. Anyways, all my other broadheads (day six, qad, ram cat, stinger, magnus) hit fairly well with my arrows and are decent or within my acceptance for aiming out to 60yds, but the anhilators seem to take control and not fly well and hit like 6-8' off. Presuming this is a fletching issue and I need to go to a 4 fletch to get more control in the back end.
Currently, using max stealth in a helical, in a 3 vane configuration. I do not recall this being an issue with the tac vanes I had on previously, and they flew quite well, I got annoyed with them always blowing off the shafts after awhile and switched back to max stealth vanes as I never had an issue.
Try spine aligning your shafts and make sure you are not under spined.Tried them again lastnight and I'm almost positive it's the fletching and I need more to control the head as the others all hit well to 50yds, there will be variations dependent on the individual head, but they hit withing 6" of each other and fletched at 50yds. Where as my anhilators hit all over.
I'm going to relfetch a few arrows with different configurations and try them out again.

I found this as well...Shoot well for me just like any other quality head. My only complaint is they don’t get as sharp as I would prefer. 4140 steel is a steel you make hammers out of not blades. Low carbon content isn’t good for sharpness or edge retention. I like the design, I like the quality, just not a fan of the chosen material. I’ve gotten OCD about broadhead sharpness this year lol.
If diamond plates could be made thin and flexible, the staysharp 344 guide would be a great tool for this endeavor.I found this as well...
I can get them sharp enough to shave hair...but not spooky sharp.
They dont pop rubber bands easily either.
This is likely the reason WHY they survive all sorts of destruction tests relatively undamaged.

I can only imagine that daunting task. The metal on the annihilator would eat up so much sandpaper it'd be insane.THIS!!^
I used the 344 on one of mine and got it at least under 400 grams of pressure on the Sharp Electronic meter. That took a lot of multiple grades of wet/dry sandpaper though. Still not QAD sharp after using a Stay Sharp.
