Rated 1 out of 5 by BamaHiker Poor Performer
I'm fairly new to arrow building so at first I thought the problems I was having was strictly related to my inexperience versus poor performance of the product. I purchased the 4" Duravanes and attempted to fletch aluminum arrows with a Bitzenburger Dial O Fletch. The problem I experienced was the edge of the vane (where it contacts the arrow) curling up after being glued. It didn't do this all of the time but probably 70% of the time. After purchasing another brand of vane (and after 10 -20 failed arrows with the Duravanes) I realized it wasn't me after all but an inferior product. Do not waste your money and time on these "deals".

These vanes will not stay on for more than half a dozen shots. This is the process I have tried, I clean off the old vane and glue , sand with 220 grit sandpaper, wipe clean with acetone and then wipe clean with dry napkin. I also put a dab of glue on the front and back of the vane, after gluing down the vane. They seem to be attached well but the next thing I know the vane is starting to lift off.

Purchased because I thought they would be a cheap alternative to the blazers I usually shoot, boy was I wrong! I re fetched & re fetched until finally giving up. I was losing vanes every time I shot. Thought it was the glue at first, then my arrow prep, but it was neither, it was the vanes. Ultimately I bought some more blazers & re fletched all my arrows, have yet to lose one since. The duravanes are stiffer than the blazers & are tough, but the don't adhere worth a darn.
