- Make sure you have a good jig like a Bitz! Review by JPR79
Quality Price Value
I picked up some of these because of their weight for my girlfriend's 40# older Browning bow. I tried fletching them to Jazz xx75 1716 shafts with an Arizona EZ Mini and Loctite Ultra Control Gel. The problem is these vanes are so ridiculously small and the base is tiny that the EZ Mini will not fletch them well. I think the jig itself isn't applying the sufficient pressure for them to stick... they would consistently not seat towards the rear of the vane.
The positive is the weight is very consistent and super light at 1.2gr per vane. They are really flimsy so should be very forgiving, particularly on something like a Whisker Biscuit. The shield cut looks very appealing and even though they are low profile, they have a decent sized area to catch the wind. Just make sure you have a single vane jig where you can manipulate how much pressure is applied from the vane to the shaft. As always, prices of AAE vanes are outstanding.

- Worth the purchase Review by Tim
Value Quality Price
Looking to cut weight were i can to keep speed up, so i decided to try them out. Narrow base made fetching a bit trickier using a bitz, but figured it out after couple ugly ones. 3rd week of shooting paper 300 and averaging respecive 290s on my hunting rig(mid 2000s mathew switchback, drop rest, spot hogg) . Will have to see if they continue to perform on the 3d course. No issue with losing fletches yet. Using 30-06 fletch wield on G.T. Pro-22s.

- Fly great, hard to glue on Review by williamskg6
Quality Price Value
I tried WAV vanes right after they came out. The good: They look great and fly really great. They're extraordinarily lightweight as well. The bad: the bases are really thin and it's very hard to apply them to arrows as a result. If you don't use AAE's glue, they will fall off your arrows to the point of frustration. They also deform/warp due to the soft plastic. Summary: If you use AAE's glue, I'd say go for it - they're good vanes that fly very well. Just be ready to replace those that get warped from impact and use. If you don't use AAE's glue, be prepared for re-fletching arrows every time you shoot.

- Another awesome vane from AAE! Review by Paul Miller
Price Value Quality
I picked up a couple packs of these at the Vegas shoot to try out and I must say I'm pretty impressed! They are a light vane weighing in at 2 grains each and are very flexable which attributes to their durability. I've shot them through bales and grouped them tight enough to bust nocks off and the vanes still look and perfrom like new (have not had to replace one yet)! I was concerned about the bases as they are very narrow, but when I can pull an arrow through a bale and the vanes are not only intact but straight my doubt was shattered! Performance wise they'll do their job as well. Shot them on a feild course and they fly great up close (bunny targets) and out at 80 yds. As an added bonus I've recently taken my training wheels off and admittedly my release is not always the best, but these help correct my wrongs and steer the arrows true.
All in all I would highly reccomend giving them a try and at $14 for 50 why not?
Arrow: VAP 700
