Default Having trouble with vane glue!

Having trouble keeping my vanes from falling off. The glue i am using is an old bottle and i wonder if it is expired. I am shooting easton fmj with blazer vanes. What brand and type of glue do i need to buy?

Thanks

Try Fletchtite Platinum..it works well for me using Blazers or feathers. Its not expensive and easy to find.

How are you cleaning and prepping the arrows and vanes?

I don't do anything to the vanes (because i was told that you didn't have to) and the shafts i rub with alcohol and let dry. Thats all i am doing!

Great choice!

Cleaning the shaft properly is very important. The best stuff to use is Denatured Alcohol.

I've never had that happen, but then I fletch several dozen arrows a year. I have used on the same tube for several months before I used it up though

I use goat tuff, and it will go bad after so long. Like Dan though, we fletch soo many arrows a tube last less than 2 weeks so we dont usually have many go bad It did have trouble fletching some x-weaves up recently with it and I believe it was a bottle gone bad b/c they came off relatively easily.

You must have done something crazy because I have used the same tube for a couple years.

You probably just had glue in the nozzle,clean it out with a toothpick and all is fine.
