I just replaced the vanes on my axis arrows. but they dont seem to last long, and it is always the bottom right vane that gets torn. the bottom left and top (odd colored one) look like new even while the bottom right is torn and making my arrow fly funny. What does everyone think. what do i have to adjust to stop them from getting torn. i shoot a drop away rest and everything. Kinda frustrating... thanks for any help CMT:sad:

fletching contact on the cables.

i had that problem on my wife's bow when we put a drop away on it with a different cable slide.

Just a thought

Your vane is striking something. Your drop away may not be timed to get out of the way; you may be hitting your cables as others have already suggested; or you may have a clearance problem with the bow's riser. You may also be having fletch contact with part of the rest. Needless to say; you have to identify the point of contact, and change your set up to eliminate it.

If you are getting contact, try some lipstick on the fletch that is getting ruined. You should see some transfer somewhere on the riser, cables, or rest.

FWIT I agree it is a contact issue! A spray on powder may work too.

Yep

The foot powder trick seems to work well for identifying contact.

Good luck.
