Fusing Form And Function

Fusing Form And Function

At first glance, Norway Industries' all-new Fusion Vane looks quite similar to other high-profile vanes on the market. But look a little deeper and you'll notice significant differences that set the Fusion apart from the crowd. As the name implies, the Fusion is constructed from two proprietary polymers that are "fused" in a patent-pending manufacturing process perfected through two years of research and development.

The base of the 2-inch vanes is made from a supple, cupped material that provides super strong adhesion to the shaft and also makes Fusion Vanes more forgiving when they come into contact with the arrow shelf, rest or in-flight obstacles. The blade of the vane, meanwhile, is made from a stiffer, more durable polymer in a modified shield cut shape designed to maximize blade surface at the most critical areas while minimizing crosswind interference.


The blade also features a textured surface and slight taper from bottom to top; features that boost arrow stabilization while reducing overall vane weight to 7 grains. The result is an extremely durable overall package providing shooters with consistency, a high level of aerodynamic steering capability and excellent broadhead flight -- even with fixed-blade heads.


For the past couple months, I've been shooting Fusion Vanes on a dozen Easton A/C/C Pro Hunter shafts on my backyard practice range with excellent results. Fusions are very quiet in flight, stiff enough to keep arrows on target and flexible enough to take a beating and retain their shape -- even when you're pounding tight groups into the target.

I'll be shooting them this fall on whitetail hunts in Missouri and Illinois, as well as a Quebec caribou hunt. You can fletch Fusion Vanes straight, offset or even full helical thanks to the supple base material. They're available in eight colors, including a new, limited edition pink.
