Our most popular crossbow vane, the shield cut 3" X Vane™ is equally well-suited for compound bowhunting, 3D, and indoor spots, and it is NASP approved. Its length and profile provide just the right amount of steerage for large diameter arrows. The 3" (76.2mm) X Vane measures 0.48" (12.1mm) in height and weighs an average of 10.0 grains (648 mg). Like all Bohning vanes, the base of the X Vane is pre-primed for optimal adhesion.
Proudly manufactured at the Bohning Factory in Lake City, Michigan, United States.
These vanes were recently approved for NASP competition and as such we have begun implementing them slowly in our program. I have found these 3 inch vanes have improved the scores and consistency in many of our team’s archers. I’m seeing tighter groups and smoother releases. As a traditional archer myself who shoots shield cut feathers I know these would help our kids and I was right. Seeing more smiles from success is my reward.
I’ve just begun using the X Vanes on my builds and so far, I’m very satisfied with the application and the 1st shot performance. I am going to add so additional offset to my future builds to see what difference it might make.
Best vanes we have found so far for the Easton Genesis arrows. We have been using the 3" Broncos and seems the XVane flight a little bit better.
I use these 3” vanes on my hunting arrows. They do a great job with broadhead flight.
These veins are the best the accuracy is great
Excellent the American Flag version adds a little more stiffness
These vanes work great on Gold Tip Triple X arrows for indoor.
I've used so many types of glues and fletchings.. this is the 3rd style of bohnings I've bought and used. I tried tac vanes and they just would not stay stuck.. I loved the heat vanes and the blazers. I wanted something longer and something that stuck well. These so far are by far the easiest to glue. I use a pen with acetone and fletchers choice glue. This has been the best for me personally. Blazer bond worked awesome too!. I bought the purple ones with a 4 fletch on the bitzenburger. When it comes to vanes I think I learned my lesson.. ill stick with bohning vanes for here on out.
