Re: Using on arrows
I had bad luck with platinum until someone suggested I hit the shaft with fine grit sand paper. Then wash in hot water till it squeaked using your fingers. Then wipe off the shaft with a dry towel. I have not had any issues with platinum since. They stick extremely tight. I actually bend the vane to the arrow shaft bow ways to make sure they stick and haven't had any issues since doing this.
