decoration, ease of refletching, and if they're real bright, they help you track your arrow in flight.
Back a few years ago hunters would crest there arrows with paint and make fancy colored ring designs on their arrows. I was always told that cresting an arrow made it a little easier to watch the arrow in flight and to find it after the shot. Wraps basically take the place of the paint. They can be designed in a traditional way or can be custom desingened with basically anything you could think of put on them. Wraps are easier to put on than paint and I think are a little more durable than the paint. The only down side to wraps is paint is a little easier to get off. But wraps will come of too it just takes a little more work.
soak them in hot water....:noidea:
All of the above.
Also not mentioned paint is cheaper than wraps.
I use them 2 track my arrow in flight nothing but white works for me.
I also decorate for tournaments but some people use wraps to hide!:lol: :lol:
I started using them for arrow flight and also identification. Now it is more a hobby and superstition. I enjoy cresting and fletching, but my hunting arrows have to be dipped white with blue cresting lines highlighted in black. two white vanes and one blue with a white nock. I put a line for each deer that has been taken with a the bow........ i need longer arrows next year.....:rockon:
lucky i only have one bow kill and it was a ground hog
yup thats it
I disagree wraps are much cheaper... When you have a vinyl plotter .. Vinyl cost hardly anything.... I can get a 15" roll 30' long for $12 that makes a lot of wraps...
Mostly cosmetic, it also lets you show a little personality.
As stated. But I use mine to offset foc just a smidge and control arrow weight. I shoot very short arrows and my wraps are equal to an extra inch of carbon or to keep foc and use lighter smaller vanes:biggrin1:
I guess i didnt explain myself better, sorry:noidea:
If u buy a can off crylon paint : white in Virginia it cost around $3 a can which can do dozens of arrows.
If u buy white arrow wraps from a pro shop around here they are $6 to do 1 doz.
I use custom wraps with my name on them sometimes that cost $15 to do 1 doz arrows.
U do the math.:noidea:
These are arrows i built for my recurve: $8 for 1 doz around here
Been messing around with address label and microsoft paint programs to make cheap wraps to personalize arrows. What is a vinyl plotter and where can I get a roll of vinyl?
But they're nice
Wrap's aren't cheap ,but they're nice . I usualy only go through a dzn arrow's every other year, I use 6 for strictly hunting and then 6 for shooting 3D ,so if wrap's cost me 15 dollar's ,really doesn't make much difference to me . I've bought severl dozen custom wrap's from Onestringer about 2 year's ago and I've only used 1 dozen so far.. But they do look real pretty and that's why i go with wrap's. I know you can get real fancy with the paint's too ,and I may try it in the near future .
Someone else mentioned that it was difficult to get wrap's off over paint ,but if you use a hairdryer or dip them in hot water,they'll peel like a banana.
4]extra rear weight
