Will it heat release if you should need to pull an insert? If you see no need to unassemle an arrow, why not, I think most clues we use now are various super glue fomulas.

I use gorilla glue super glue to fletch arrows. Works great and it is a lot cheaper than Tim's Goat Tough. It is just another cyanoacrylate glue. I do not think regular Gorilla Glue would work very well

For fletching I prefer the Fletch Tite Platinum, and gluing inserts in I prefer the Easton HIT epoxy. Slower set but stronger bond & less brittle than other epoxies.

It is what it was designed for

There has been a lot of discussion on glues for arrow making. Here is my 2 cents worth. Two choices for fletching, super glue regardless of brand since it is all cyanoacylate and bohning fletch-tite-platinum. For inserts low-temp hot melt. I personally like the fletch-tite platinum, but will use super glue on occasion. I do a lot of tinkering with point weight and with low temp hot melt you can remove points with ease. I use to use expoxy and I think I lost more point with expoxy. Don't remember leaving an insert in the bale using hot melt.

I understand that and that's the reason I say if a person is going to use Epoxy they are better using the slow set epoxies. IMO they are less brittle and not as prone to breaking loose

You may have a point there, I live in a small town and all I have found is a fast curing expoxy, It seem everybody wants the fast drying stuff. It isvery brittle when it dries. Next order to Lancaster I my order some the easton epoxy. Knock on wood, but I have had good success with low temp hot melt.

I use the Gorilla super glue for fletching and I love it! It has a rubber additive that helps it flex a bit. I use epoxy or hot melt for the inserts.

I tried the gorillla super glue for fletching but it leaves a white film on the arrows, which I didn't like. I went back to fletch tite platinum.

That's one reason I like the Fletch Tite also.

Trivial I know!

The regular Gorilla Glue is useless for archery.

However, I've used the Gorilla Super Glue for fletching for about 2 years. It's cheaper and works as well as anything on the market at twice the price.

Lately, I've begun using Bohning tape for feathers. It's faster and does a much neater job. It sticks as good as any glue.

Hot melt for inserts. It's never failed me like epoxy has.
