The best glue there is is by bob smith industries. If you have a hobby shop they should have it. maxi-cure . Of course this is my own opinion but, I have proved it time an time again

Default Best glue

I have used Tim's Goat Tuff for over 20 years and never lost a feather or vane either when competing or hunting. It sets up fast within minutes. You literally have to scrape off the existing feather or vane before it would fall off. The only thing you would have to purchase it from an archery store such as Lancaster Archery. It's totally worth the extra effort. You'll never use anything else.

Local hardwear store? One of the super glues or duco cement . what type of fletching and going on what type of arrow shaft? Older wood or aluminum duco, everything newer, super glue.
