I've used both Fletch-Tite and Goat Tuff and I found both work great. I did however find that when stripping the fletchings off of old arrows, Goat Tuff was a little harder to get off meaning it would take quite a bit to knock a vane off.

Zak, I don't know what kind of problems you've had with Fletch-Tite, but I decided I like it better than the Goat Tuff. Works great with my arrows, were you preppying your arrows and/or washing your vanes before fletching?

I tried all types of glue,i guess goat tuff is good but and many of the bowhunters would laugh at this glue and its better than all the other glues,get ready to laugh.Its nail enamel,and it holds very good and fast drying.I got the idea from my wife when she was polishing her nails,tried them fletching my arrows and so far,never came off,its call (mayblline express finish,fast dry nail enamel,and its easy to apply

I saw a tip the other day that said don't use aceatone to clean your carbon arrows. Said certain types of glue would not adhere. It said to wipe down with water. Sounds crazy, but the guy was an arrow representative.
