Thanks for the input fellas.. And to answer tndeerguy's question I don't know what type glue was used I had my local archery shop put them on when I bought them.. I think I have decided to by a fletcher and start doing them myself now..I have never fletched my own arrows but I guess it's time i learn how!

Fletching is not hard. You will need a few things. A vegtable peeler, a small can of acetone, loctite control gel, green scotchbrite pad, some q-tips and a few paper towels.
First, use the vegetable peeler to remove as much of the old fletching and and glue as possible. Then take the green pad to remove the remaining bit and also to "scuff" the shaft. Then take a paper towel wet with acetone and clean the shaft of residue and dust. Then take a q-tip damp with acetone and clean the base of the fletching and then run a very thin bead of loctite gel along the fletching base while it is in the clamp. Then apply clamp to the shaft and let it sit there for 2-3 minutes and then start with the next one. Afterwards apply a small dot of glue to tbe front and back of tbe fletching where it meets tbe shaft.
