Default lookin at drop way

i'm tired of fletching arrows. I have a fred bear element 62# 30.5 DL shootin camo gold tip hunters 29in long with 4 degree off set 4 in vanes. The biscuit is killin me. I fletched some arrows up last night, shot them 4 times and they started to fall apart. I know what i;m doin, i bought all the high tech glues, carbon prep etc..... the list goes on, but i just can't keep the vanes on very long. I even got to the point where i would put a huge gob of glue on the front of the vane to keep in on, then i breaks off in the middle. So anyhow i;m lookin for a drop away that is fail proof, easy to set up because the proshop is 2 hours away.

I would recommend a limbdriver by vaportrail. You can get one at a very reasonable price from MeanV2.

There's a lot of good ones now. Limbdriver does simplify things a bit...but even 'normal' ones are simple enough. And there's all sorts of tutorials on youtube.

MeanV2 treats his customers right. 'nuf said




Oh, and try Loctite SuperGlue UltraGel (black with blue 'wings' on the bottle). I don't I'll ever go back to "fletching" glues. You don't need it with the loctite but if you're not adding a drop at the front and back of each fletch try it. It did make my Bohning Platinums stay on better when I shot through a target or the random 2-liter/coke can/whatever-my-catches.

I sell most all the current Drop away rest, but I don't hesitate to recommend the Limb Driver.

I think it is best on the market!

Although I switched from a Whisker Biscuit to a drop away (QAD Ultra) a number of months back, the whisker biscuit never gave me any fits with fletching. If you are having a problem along those lines, there is either something wrong with the "tune" of the WB or there is something wrong with your fletching procedures.

I used a WB for years and was happy with it. This year I changed to a Limbdriver and so far I am very happy with it. I had no real reason to change but I am glad I did.
