Just wondering if anyone has encountered this.

When I use a spring steel (lizard tounge, forked tounge etc) and spin vanes, I always manage to damage the vanes.

Tried everything like super close inspection of nock alignment, varying rest tension etc, but it seems like these vanes start spinning the moment the arrow leaves the nock, and along the way, the spinning most likely slams part of the vane into the very thin, sharp edge of the launcher blade.

I don;t really like the idea of switching to a drop-away as I like to keep the rest simple (KISS), and the best performance I have had so far at long distances in windy conditions have been with the X-Wings spin type vanes.

Any ideas of how I could solve this (besides switching to regular vanes)?

I used to shoot spin wings off a Pro Tuner. The only way to get good clearance is to grind your blades down so they aren't so wide.
