The current wraps I have on my arrows are crap! fletchings are flying off left and right. I have tried several different glues that I have had great results with in the past. For some reason the materials used on the wraps are to slick and nothing adheres to it. I will spend the next few hours starting over but I guess it will be worth it in the end. Bummer!!!!! \:\(

I think I have EZE crest arrow wraps . I got them for $7 at G&S Pro bass and Hunting in Columbia when they were in business . They work great with super glue gel .

For me, It is like the rims and tires on my truck...they look sexy!!!

Most people that fletch their own arrows want a way to put the finishing, customize touch to them.

I have also shot deer and looked through binos at my arrow (which on most of my wraps it is easier to see bubbles etc.) and it has allowed me information on how to proceed.

Eddie, I have used the same glue on other wraps and they held up fine. I flecthed some arrows with out the wraps with the same glue and they held up just fine.

They help you see the arrow in flight and they look cool .

I too use the wraps for an easier time finding arrows and watching the flight of an arrow. Never had a problem with fletchings coming off the wraps I use (eze crest). I still use Fletch-Tite Platinum glue with great success.

But! I've got a couple of my hunting arrows that have boogered-up fletchings that need to be replaced right now, and I dread having to remove both the cresting and fletchings. They're pretty and all, but I'm not replacing the wraps! Until I find the pre-crested GT's, I'll just use all white feathers with a white nock.

Rich,
Be sure to wipe your wrap and fletching with rubbing alcohol to clean the surfaces prior to flethcing. I have a lot better luck using Fletch-tite Platinum glue than any other type.

I've been shooting those Shrink fletch things for a couple years and they are the bomb. I can honestly say they hold up better than my past ventures with EZE crest and the bitzenberger. Whole lot quicker too. They are pricey though.

I use a hair dryer instead of hot water. Works great. I did a dozen for a buddy today in about 5 minutes.

I wrap mine in white and can honestly follow the arrow a LOT better after the shot. Also a lot easier to find. I've burried them through a few deer before and different bones send them flying somewhere other then right behind the target. You would be amazed at how well that white stands out on the forrest floor, even covered in blood ( just makes a bright pink ).

I'm fixin to do the same thing. Tried the wraps for the first time they look good and they could serve a good perpose when tryint to find the arrow after a shot, but I just didn't care for the flight i was getting. I actually had to sand on the arrows that i took the wraps off of in order to get the vanes to stick to the shaft.
