Default Problems with Blazers staying on

Has anyone had problems with Blazers staying on this year? I help a pro shop and fletch about 300 arrows each year. I have never had problems tell this year. I use Fletch-Tite Platinum and clean the shaft and all that stuff. Help

Not a big fan of the Fletch Tite....Use any cyanoacrylate...like Pine Ridge, or and "super glue" type....goat tuff....something along that line. DO NOT clean the bottom of the vane first.

I've only fletched my own and I have no problem this year.

What's coming off, the glue on the Blazers or the glue off the shafts?

I use the Bohning Instant Gel and have never had one come off unless I shot if off.

Glue from both shaft and vane.

With the blazers i always use a super glue type glue and haven't had any problems. With the fletching glues like bond-tite and platinum I've had the same problems as you.

On my axis's and epics ive had to put wraps on then the blazers on top of them. Something about the texture on the shaft wont keep the blazers on the shaft

Well your not alone, me and a couple of friends have the same problem.
I took and lightly sandpapered by arrows, cleaned them and they still came off after a few shots. I have returned to the old 4" regular vane.
Good hunting.

Does the wraps cause any problems in the flight of the arrow?

The Blazer wraps are half the size ofa standard wrap so I wouldnt think it would be enough weightto effect your arrow. I also put a dot of glue at the front and rear of each vane that seems to help alot shooting them through my wisker biscuit.
