    Exclamation Dissolving Fletching Glue on Carbon

    So here I am with my newest bow,,,a bowtech,,,and I want to test several fletching types....quick spin...blazers etec... but my issue is that every time I change fletchings I spend more time prepping shafts(removing old glue) than I do testing arrows. Does anyone know if acatone(the only dissolving agent I can find) will damage carbon arrows? Is there something better than acatone out there or should I just stick with a sharp razor

    I vote sharp razor... If you get one of those boxcutter style blades with the groove specifically for cleaning arrows, its not to bad.

    I use a sharp razor.....maybe Wheely or Chris can move this to the right section....
    I cut things up and split them down!
