I have read a lot of post here lately about folks having wavy vanes.I have one question for you. Does the arrow fly bad? My bet is that arrow flies really good. With this waviness it creates more surface area on the fletching which stabilizes the arrow quicker.

I noticed a little spiraling and just figured it was because of the vanes not being straight,could have been something else?

The whisker biscuit makes my fletchings wavy also but I still have good arrow flight and accuracy. A guy at a pro shop said to run the hair dryer on them to straighten them out

I agree that wavy vanes stabilize an arrow quicker because they add drag to the rear of the shaft .

After going to the shorter blazer vanes, I have not had a single wrinkle or rip.
