Tip of the Week: Fix Wavy Vanes Without Refletching
Plastic vanes are great, but one of their drawbacks is the tendency become wavy if the fletchings are coming in contact with your rest, or if you shoot through your target. While it’s good to know if your fletchings are coming in contact with your rest, it’s also a pain to have to refletch every time you get a wavy vane.
Believe it or not, these wavy vanes often can be straightened with a hot hair dryer. Put a hair dryer on its hottest setting and heat up your wavy vanes. Often they will straighten up in the hot air and be good as new.
