    I use goat tuff.


    I'd think the chute of the mixing truck would be too big to get the cement into the shaft???? :noidea:

    Fletching glue doesn't seem to be strong enough.

    And as far as the cement truck chute, you run a long straw similar to what they inseminate horses with (its called a pipette) from the chute to the arrow shaft so you don't get a bunch of spillage.

    I didn't realize Goat Tuff was designed for fletchings. I use Fletch Tite Platinum for fletching. Some use hot melt for tips. I guarantee you Goat Tuff works better then wax.

    Some use epoxys also. Seems like extra work to me.

    Maybe if you were pulling arrows out of foam instead of trees, glue would be good enough.....:biggrin1:

    I don't know what Goat Tuff was designed for but a lot of people use it for fletching. I too use fletchtite platinum from Bohning after I found out thats what you use and I know how awesome you are so I got some myself. I use liquid cement for both the nocks and the inserts and I use Elmers pre-school glue sticks for my arrow wraps.

    I use Goat Tuff for fletching and inserts/tips. It is good stuff, but not cheap. You can get some comparable stuff at hobby stores for much less cash. They sell the hobby glue at my shop now, but I still have goat tuff left to use up!

  13. I use goat tuff for my inserts and it works great. I put some inserts in my arrows and by the time I got out to the range which was about 45 minutes they were good to go. I did not loose one insert:rockon:
