    Spinwin Vane Colours

    Hello all. Does anyone know if there is a 'drag' difference with spinwing vanes of different colours. I am about to fit 1 3/4" to some carbon shafts. I have a lot of Yellow and some Orange. I was thinking of using the orange ones a an index vane. I have read somewhere about colours and varying drag.

    There is and they shouldn't be mixed... unlike what I thought in this thread! At least with the 'proper' Spinwings

    Does the color of the vane affect the drag?
    In our most recent testing, it was shown that there is no difference in drag between the colors.

    Can I shoot two colors on my arrow?
    We recommend shooting one color per arrow and to always use vanes from the same package.

    My guess is, and it's only a guess, that the advice to use vanes only from the same pack is to reduce batch variations. This would meet both the stiffness claim and the need to fletch arrows from one packet only.

    I wonder what increase in group size would result from using three colours?
    All the arrows could be fletched with the same combination from each of three packets.
