Default Anyone used AAE Max Hunter Vanes?

Looking to make a switch from Bohning Blazer Vanes. No issues with them, just wanting to try something else. Does anyone have any experience with the 2.1" AAE Max Hunter Vanes?

I have used them. Good vanes, but they are so thick they don't want to fit into my ez fletch.

So you have to force it into the arms of the jig or does it not fit at all?

They will fit, but they are tight.

One more question how do they compare to Bohning Blazers vanes? That's if you've used them. Thanks, I appreciate the feedback

Way better. I also like Fusion and Vanetec. These all seem tougher and stick better than Blazers. Almost forgot, cheaper.

Compared to the Blazers they are heavier and louder; heavier is to be expected, they are a taller and thicker, but the noise I couldn't deal with.

I do like the Vanetech better than the AAE Max, but not as well as Blazers, but pretty close.

I have no trouble getting all of them to stick to carbon with Platinum glue; I use regular superglue gel on any wraps. No adhesion problems doing this with any vane.
