Default Fletching Arrows

I posted this pic a few weeks ago and it was my first time using fletching tape instead of glue. Was kind of ify on how it would hold up. After two weeks of shooting I can say it's the way to go. Have yet to strip off a fletching. It's easy to work with and speeds up the fletching process. Cheap too. The roll I got was $7 and will do three dozen arrows. If you fletch your own it's certainly worth trying.

Do you put a drop of glue on the ends of the feather?

Sure do blue. Just a little drop for insurance.

You'll like how nice and clean your arrows will look.

It's a very thin double sided tape. Apply to the vane, peel off the backing and push it firmly down on the arrow and done. I got mine from 3riversarchery.com. They also have a short video showing how to do it.

Yep. Put the fletching in the jig clamp, apply tape,trim to exact length, peel off backing and press into place. A dot of glue at the front and rear of the fletching and you're done. It's fast and easy once you get the hang of it and your arrows look really nice and clean. TIP. The tape backing is really thin so it helps to use a razor blade to get under it and peel it off. Once you get it started it peels right off but it's hard to get it started using your fingernails.
