Thread: Arrow Fletching
09-01-2007, 08:32 PM #1
I got my Gold Tips in a few days ago and as I was fletching them, I noticed glue was oozing out from under the vanes, which didn't happen with my aluminum arrows and super glue. I'm now using Bohning Fletch-tite.
I didn't think I put all that much glue on them, but apparently I did. Then I tried to put a smaller bead on the vanes and they just peeled right off. I thought about cutting off the part that oozed out once they dried but I dunno. Am I doing something wrong or should I even worry about it?

I have found that it takes a few screw ups to get it right. I would not cut off the excess!!! You may cut the fibers on the arrow and that wont be good.That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

I usally take a Q-tip and run it down the vane after I apply the glue to ensure that it is applied to the vane evenly.
And if any ozzes out on the side, I take the corner of a papaer towel and swipe the sides while it is still wet.

I clean any excess glue off with a Q-tip once I've set the vane
