When I fletch with the Bitzenburger either vanes or feathers I always use Fletch-Tite Platinum. I also starting using an Arizona EZ Fletcher mini right helical for 2 inch Blazers and have been using Loktite control gel with good luck.

The older I get the better I was.

I’ve never had an issue with the original Fletch tite or the new Platinum. I’ll give you two hints, buy new glue every six months and always clean with 90+% alcohol.

Depending on the arrow manufacturer, I have a few variations in cleaning the shafts prior to fletching. Gold tip arrows clean up quickly with denatured alcohol- I usually wet a paper towel, rub the arrow until it "squeeks". Then fletch. I have found that Easton Arrows (carbon and aluminum) fletch better if you take a green pad to them first, then the denatured alcohol wipe till "squeeky" clean. Carbon Express needs the same treatment at Easton. I have pretty much given up on fletching glue and feathers- I don't have the patience, even if I have nothing on the agenda. I prefer the double sided fletching tape, and again, armour the tips of the feathers with a fast setting glue.

Wishing I was at camp!
