Blazer Vanes are a great vane and used by a huge amount of bowhunters. I use the Max Hunter Vanes. The material they are made with is stiffer and more durable, also the vane has ridges on it to help it stabilize in flight.

PM me your address and I can send you some Max Hunter samples and AAE Max Bond Glue.

 I use Blazzer vains. I wouldn't mind trying the AAE Max Hunter. This may sound stupid but How do you Private Maessage some one? I shoot Carbon Express arrows "Maxima Express" and use an offset. I would like to know if a helical is better. My bow is a Hoyt Carbon Element and set at #70. With the arrows I shot it cronographed at 283 fps. Appreciate your input.

 im not know pro or pro staffer or shooter for a shop

helical just help the arrow stablize faster by forcesing  air to spin the air faster and in a shorter time but down fall is your tyeing parchute to your arrow

but i feel its not neceary if you tune your bow right shooting right arrow spin/wiegh

i shoot a hoyt carbon element rkt at 74 pound with a maxiam hunter 350 at 28inches from the vallie of the nock  at 318fps and with field tip to broadheads i can shot a group of 5 and be touching fleching at 90 yard and thats with blazer vane straight

but i belive bare shaft tunning is a must.

 Muliemyke, how are you getting that much speed out of your bow. We shoot the same length and weight of arrow, I have my bow set at #70 does #4 pounds make that much difference. I shot mine through a chronograph twice and got 82 and 83 fps. Everyone comments on how fast my bow is and I thought it should have chronographed at a higher speed do you think the chronograph could have been off.

Certain brand Chrono's will read different....With a Competion Electronics Brand Chronograph, If you shoot in the bottom left quadrant you will lose close to 15 FPS, If you shoot in the top right quadrant you will gain 15FPS.

This was proven to me a competion where archers had to shoot through the chronography because of max speed rules.

Leadfoot, another thing that can affect speed is the person shooting the bow.  Each person might hold the bow different by palming it, thumbing it, anchor point, the list is endless!!  My buddy shots my bow consistantly 3 to 4 fps faster then I do!  Same bow, same arrow, just a different shooter.    This is also a reason why you should never believe that you can go to a proshop and have them "tune" your bow for you.  Whoever tuned it did so to his grip not yours!  Hooter shooters are nice but the take the human element out of the equation too!  Food for thought.

ERIC  seriously???  i was about to buy a CE chronny and light kit, thought those other brands that fold in half and such were not as good as CE chronny.  Dont want to get one thats crappy depending on where you shoot thru them.

 Thanks for the info. I have a 28 inch draw and my bow is the 2011. I know it seems fast and like I said before everyone always coments on how fast it is, but when I chronographed it it seemed slower than I expected. I know it is very well tuned. I do have a custom bow string that might be heaveir than the one it came with, not sure. The one thing I do know for sure is I am very happy with my bow just was a little confused on the FPS.

 I do not know the brand or material. I posted on this site a few moths ago, about what happened to my original string when my bow was pulled by a guy without a release I think it was titled "Learned A Leason Today".

OH that sucks, yeah lesson learned, dont let anyone that doesnt know how to shoot draw your bow.

Was just asking as i build strings and was curious what material you got now, some are faster than others and also other tricks to make a set faster if someone wants it that way.

 I personally love the shield cut design of the Max Hunters.  They are more rigid and in my opinion control and STEER better especially if you are shooting a fixed blade head.
