Default Zeon Fusion Vane

Has anyone ever shot an arrow fletched with the new "Zeon" Fusion Vane? I was wondering if they actually do emit enough light to the rear edge to be able to actually track the arrow in flight. If they do, how well do they work in low light conditions? They sound promising.

Default Tracking arrow flight.

To answer your question; The Zeon Vanes are indeed 'cool looking vanes', but there's not much difference tracking the flight of the arrow when fletched with the Zeon vane as against using say a Blazer, VaneTec etc.
If your purpose is the track the flight of the arrow or to find your arrow after the shot use a 'Firenock'. By no means cheap, but will get the job done.

Thanks ampahunter. I know they look like they should work when viewing from the rear but I thought I also heard someone else say that they weren't what they were cracked up to be while shooting them on youtube. I'll just stick with Blazers.

Just Fletched my wife's Gold Tip Ultralights with them, I used 3 inches of white arrow wrap under them. Putting the white wraps on them really makes them gather the light, 2 to 3 times brighter than without. They look awesome.
