Just bought some new bolts for crossbow. After opening them up the vanes are 3" on my old bolts they are 4" . Does it make a difference?

Probably won't make a difference. The quality of the arrows themselves have more to do with accuracy than vane choice.

I'll agree 65% Can't beat a good arrow with a spine check but the the other 35% a good vane really helps.. There are darn good arrows out there if you spend a couple bucks but they are worth it.

Used to work in an archery shop and my guess is that a higher profile 3" vane and the "common" 4" vanes have pretty close to the same surface area for bolt stabilization?
