    I use both still.
    4" Gateway feathers on my older bows.
    Blazers on my more 'modern' stuff.
    Full length feathers for Flu-Flu's when I shoot stuff in the air...

    Feathers on the older bows is that because of the narrow shelf?

    AAE Max and Pro Max have been my vanes of choice for the last couple years. Have served me well.

    Yeah, plus no drop-away rests, longer BH gives more room between rest and string, and I just kinda like feathers altho they're more maintenance and more time consuming to fletch.
    One of my Alien X's that I use if I hunt out of a tree stand has a biscuit rest and feathers don't work unless you stuff them into the bristles when you nock the arrow.
