    I had a couple of my vanes fall off my easton axis arrows and a couple that were beat up bad. Whats the best way to strip down my carbons so that I can put new vanes on so I don't hurt the arrows?

    I use a utility knife at about a 60 degree angle and shave the vanes off. Then I just rest the weight of the knife on the arrow shaft and scrape away the glue residue while slowly turning the shaft. Then I use a scotch-brite pad to make sure the shaft is smooth and then use acetone to clean the shaft. I have done dozens of arrows like that and have never damaged one, including the Axis arrows I hunt with now.
