    I use the blue...Medium strength...If you don't want to make adjustments or remove the part then use the red...

    The blue will hold until you remove the screw...if you need to remove the red it takes some force or alittle heat(just a hair dryer...about 500*)and it'll come right out...

    ALSO...Alittle bit goes along way...You don't need to flood the part...

    I use the blue on all sorts of stuff...even feild points...like I said the red will hold like death, and sometimes you have to heat it to loosen it...

    I guess it time to be serious. I dont like to but I'll try. I use Fletch tight glue on ever thing. sight block screws. scope rod ,arrow points. never had any thing to come loose yet.

    I use it mainly because I always have some laying around. and as smooth as bows are today it dont take a lot to hold screws and rods.

    That is a good idea...

    I always have loctite handy because of other hobbies but that's a great alternative for archers...

    Just a drop is enough though...

    Blue is the correct answer. I use it on my tips for the arrows and you have to heat the sucker to get it out. I barely put any on too and it sticks like mad.

    Blue. If you use red you need to apply a LOT of heat to break the bond.

    I use black RTV silicone. I just put a really small dab on the threads before I assemble anything, including screw in points, and the parts just don't work loose. As a plus it's really easy to take things back apart without screwing threads up or marking things with pliers, wrenches, etc...
