AAE Trad Vanes
- Special Orders
The Trad Vanes are AAE's very first vanes for traditional archery, designed in collaboration with star traditional archer Aron Snyder. Arrows fletched with Trad Vanes can be shot straight off the shelf and have the same flight characteristics as an arrow with feathers. The weather-resistant proprietary "lick and stick" Plastifletch material gives the archer an unique edge in all weather conditions. The Trad Vanes come with factory applied activator, making them low-maintenance and easy to apply.

Picked up a bunch of these after seeing the Kaminski video helping his wife fletch her new starter videos and recommended this product to be a good balanced vane for a mix of outdoors and indoor shooting. Obviously being balanced means it doesn't excel in categories more specialized fletching would but for starter arrows these are sufficient. He did mention these are trickier to install since the contact area is smaller than other vanes but it didn't seem that difficult for me as I was able to get a consistent bead across the contact area w/o excess.
These vanes are an alternative to feathers for those who want a hunting vane that stabilizes a broadhead. They are soft and easy on a rest and easy to install. They are not quite the performance as feathers, but do their job in wet weather. Not a choice for shooting targets at 70 meters because of drag.
Excellent product, especially for shooting in the rain!
Very happy with the trad vanes. The only problem is the platinum glue sometimes doesn't stick to the vane very well.
easy to apply, shoot the same as my feathers and are a great wet weather alternative
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
