The Emerge of Aerovane IIIWhen the first Aerovane (Aerovane I) was introduced in spring of 2008, a lot about Aerodynamics and Arrow-dynamics was not fully understood. Also, it was believed that the smooth surface of Aerovane I would decrease the air frictional drag, however the opposite is true; a slightly rough surface texture proved to be more efficient.
In order to improve the design of Aerovane I, we went to consult low-speed airfoil expert, Professor Michael Selig of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Of it, Aerovane II and its single airfoil design and multiple micro texturing zones (to take advantage of Aerodynamics Elasticity Memory (AEM) was born.
After the development of Aerovane I, Aerovane II and with the launch of Aerovane Jig, the Aerovane III was introduced in 2013. In brief, Aerovane III is a more aggressive design of Aerovane II. Incorporating Firenock's latest innovations in vane design such as the low profile design, the winglet, the large airfoil, and the 4 different aerodynamic micro-texturing zones, Aerovane III is especially designed to handle strong crosswind. You will be amazed when your Aerovane III-equipped arrow flies straight under 30 mph crosswinds. Aerovane III is the ultimate vane for today's high speed arrows.
