AAE’s Max Stealth vane offers the whisper quiet shape of our 2.6″ Elite Plastifletch vane with the durability and flexibility of our proprietary MAX material.

AAE introduces the New Hybrid line of vanes featuring AAE’s revolutionary Base Dynamics technology. Every vane company on the planet assumes the vane base only functions to bond the vane to the arrow. Well, at AAE our research team decided to look deeper into the base/vane relationship and how the base could play a role in the dynamic performance of the vane once installed. After years of testing, we discovered that there is indeed a directly proportional effect on a vane's dynamic performance in flight and how the base and vane are designed resulting in Base Dynamics. All Hybrid vanes are manufactured using our industry-leading Plastifletch “Lick & Stick” material with a factory-applied activator. It features the new Base Dynamics design in addition to AAE’s legendary stabilization ridges for the ultimate ease of fletching, durability, and performance. The New Hybrid line of vanes comes in 16, 1.85 Shield, 2.0 Shield, 23, 26, 40, HP, and XB.
AAE teamed up with accomplished outdoorsman and Traditional archer Aron Snyder to create the first-ever Traditional archery vane that can be shot off the shelf while maintaining the same flight characteristics and impact point they are accustomed to with feathers. The new AAE TRAD vane allows Traditional archers the confidence to shoot a vane with the security of knowing wet or inclement weather will require ZERO maintenance or prep of their arrows resulting in longer and more successful hunts in the field. The TRAD vane is made from AAE’s proprietary “Lick and Stick” Plastifletch material for quick and easy fletching at home or in the field with no vane prep needed as the TRAD vane comes with a factory-applied activator. Available in: Three Sizes: 3″, 4″, and 5″

The Pro Drop, the most accurate and stable limb-driven fall-away rest on the market, is now the most versatile as well. The Pro Drop can quickly and easily be converted from a limb-activated fall-away rest to a fixed blade rest in a matter of minutes. The Pro Drop’s stainless steel axle rotates on twin stainless steel sealed ball bearings for maximum accuracy, dependability, and longevity. The Launcher Arm stays up longer, increasing the time the arrow is on the rest which leads to more accuracy. The Pro Drop also features a shortened “Drop Time” allowing for maximum clearance.
The Whale Tail Launcher is a urethane over-molded spring steel launcher. The activation cord is coated with stainless steel to minimize stretching. AAE’s Limb Sandwich allows for upper or lower limb mounting. The Pro Drop is micro-adjustable both horizontally and vertically, making it easy to set up and tune. Included is our Launch Pad to deaden any arrow or rest noise.
Available in: Standard, Hoyt Tec, Extended, or Carbon Mounts. RH/LH

The Freak Blade utilizes AAE’s proprietary hex cut-out for precise launcher blade replacement. This blade is specifically designed for the skinniest of FITA arrows used for outdoor shooting. The arm length, width, and depth of the fork cut were tested and evaluated by Jesse and our team resulting in the most accurate launcher blade in the industry. The Standard Blade is the most versatile of all the launcher blades. The width allows for a wide range of arrow sizes while maintaining the fork length and depth of cut this blade has become famous for. This blade also utilizes AAE’s proprietary hex cut-out for precise launcher blade replacement.
The Wide Blade was created for use with large diameter indoor and 3D arrows. The wide blade maintains the proportional fork and depth of cut length while scaling up to support the largest of arrows. This blade also utilizes AAE’s proprietary hex cut-out for launcher blade replacement.

The Advante-X is a micro- Diameter stabilizer designed to offer archers the advantage of a micro diameter .500 (1/2”) bar for additional wind reduction while weighing only 3.2 oz at 30-inches long including end caps. The Advante-X is made from high-modulus carbon for maximum stiffness. Archers looking to shoot more accurately in the wind while retaining the aiming characteristics and adjustability top archers have come to expect depending on the Advante-X.
For the archer looking to customize stabilizer logo color combinations to their other bow accessories, AAE includes five different laminated decals: Blue, Green, Pink, Red, and Tan. Front Bars include 3 ounces of weight. Back Bars have no weights included. The Advante-X uses HR stabilizer weights. Front Bar lengths: 27”, 30”, and 33”. Back Bar/Side Bar lengths: 10”, 12”, and 15”.
It is constructed from a custom blend of ultra stiff high-modulus carbon, making it the stiffest bar available. The bars have a small .700” O.D. that is as stiff as the top tournament bars available from AAE and have internal dampening for a smooth shot.
The Nitrous features AAE’s Hidden Weight System (HWS). Each Front Bar comes with a 1-ounce cap and a built-in 2-ounce internal weight located at the weight end. The standard 1-ounce black cap can hold two additional hidden brass weights, for a total of 5-ounces. The optional 4-ounce stainless steel cap increases the front weight capacity to 9-ounces without changing the O.D. of the bar. This greatly reduces the wind profile of the stabilizer. Optional end caps available to allow up to 22 ounces of total weight. Back Bars/Side Bars feature a larger diameter weight system incorporating a 6-ounce tapered weight that increases the leverage factor of the weights and maintains a smooth wind profile. Weights are sold separately.
Front Bar lengths: 27”, 30”, 33”, And an 18” Wind Bar.
• The Front Bar comes with a 2-oz insert weight and a 1-oz outer Black Cap that will hold up to two additional hidden weights.

The Pro Stock’s unique end cap allows the weights to be screwed on the outside of the end cap rather than to the end. The Pro Stock will accept up to 16-ounces on the end and comes equipped with two 2-oz. disc weights with 4-oz. weights being sold separately. The end cap weighs oz. and comes with three spacers (25 grains each) to ensure no matter how many disc weights the archer uses, the weights are always centralized at the end of the bar for maximum effectiveness.
