Two schools of thought here- 1) quick adhesion or 2) flexible adhesion. The fast drying glues dry quickly, adhere well. Over time (6 months to a year) they get brittle and the vanes start coming off with repeated use. Flexible glues take longer to apply, may need you to "armour" or put a drop of glue where the fletch contacts the shaft at the front of the vane, but tend to last much longer because they maintain their flexibility over the life of the arrow/vane and fluctuation in temperature. If I'm in no hurry, I use Fletch-Tite platinum as my main glue. I have used Bohning Blazer Bond recently, with no problems.
