FWIW - a friend and I compared AAE elite plastifletch 3" vanes with 3" predator vanes and blazer vanes (all else being exactly equal) head-to-head, and found the AAE's retained the most speed (and KE) at 40 yards, and were the quietest by a good margin.

How about putting 4 additional 5" vanes in the middle of the shaft, straight, no offset, like a cruise missle, so the arrow can glide! Then, some minimal little 1" offset vanes in the back just to keep the arrow from whacking out of control.

That'd be interesting!

Until they've been through a few targets and start to tear off. Then they're LOUD. But still fun.

I've never had a problem with how the plastifletch flew. It was that they'd get tweaked out so quickly for me.

Glad to see "my" test came out similar to theirs. ...I was also testing the "regular," "hunting" style AAE vanes, not the ridged ones that most 3D/target shooters do, so that may be where the "wear" difference has been; for me, the AAEs have stood up to a LOT of wear and tear during hunting seasons (I don't shoot 3D, targets, etc.).
