The curl in the vanes depends on whether the vanes are RH/LH. RH curl anti-clockwise looking from the nock end, LH curl clockwise.

They are mounted exactly the same as regular vanes. The sharply tapered end points towards the point.

Have a look at the Beiter site for a Tri Liner and a Wing Holder. These are specialised tools to make life easier for Spin Wings.
The only way to go.

There is a guide to fletching with kurly's here:

which covers the whole process, including the orientation question.

K-vane clips are much cheaper than the wing holders. ;)

if you want to make sure vanes like the kurly vanes or the spin wings stay very firmly attached, you can fold them over.

so get the appropriate size and handedness, put them on the otherway round ie curling round the arrow, then bend them back, along the tape et voila!

How much speed i will get on 28pound limbs on my daughters draw of 26 and she needs to hit 50m ,she can really hit 40mreally good but 50 it is hard we are using Shibuya standard and the extension on her sight for 40m is all the way out (first holefrom back to front ) we tried to shoot 50m on the Third holle and it was a little better so her extension was half away for 50m .She is usind regular AAE 1.5 vanes .If we change she will get more speed or not .And will her sight marks will change a lot for her other distances.Thank guys your comments are really helpfull .bye

PRarcher,

i used to shoot 28lbs with a 26' draw, and the only distance i had problems with was 70m, was also shooting 1616 alis with plastivanes.

silly question, does she drop her bow arm?

and if her arrows do get faster, which i'm not sure they will significantly with a change of vane, unless you get lighter ones (i'm not familiar with aae)

i did an experiment with arrow speed, and loose had alot more affect on arrow speed than i thought. so i guess make sure she also works on a clean/fast loose

if the sightmark is no good on the 3rd hole, why can't you put the sight as close to the bow as possible and get sightmarks for all distances there? saves on moving it back and forth.... that's where my sight used to sit, and even now, it's only as far out as my 80y/70m sight marks allow
