Default Best Vanes?

I have been using just Easton or whatever I could get my hands on for years. Are the other more expensive 4" plastic vanes worth it.

I think that the flex fletch vanes are worth it. I used dura vanes then switched to flex fletch then to quick spins. Hands down the flex fletchare my favorite. They are extremely durable, will take a hit from a field point and not tear, will go through a target, grass, trees etc. and be fine. They are very durable. They are not a very pliable vane and they get stiff when cold but it never affected performance as far as I could tell.About the only time you will need to replace them is with a broadhead hit or they falloff the arrow. I put them on with Saunders arrow mate and I never hadone peel off. Great combination.

AAE plastifletch are very good. As are the duravanes. Don't overlook the Blazers either.

What Mike said. The best still comes off of turkeys. And that being said, if one must shoot plastic then I favor the Duravane Low Profile or VaneTec.

I agree with most of these guy's that the Bohning Blazer 2" are the best vane's I've used .They're not cheap ,but by far the most durable of all the vane's I've used .

I have just started using the quickspins and they are great. They really make your groups tighter, but they are a little larger than a normal vane
