Refletching?

4 posts in this topic

How bad do you let your arrows get before you refletch them or replace them all together?

I've got some fletchings that need to work, they range from a small tear to half of one vane ripped off.  They all still group just fine but they look ugly.

Second part of the question, has anyone ever used the NAP Quick Fletch product?  Online reviews seem pretty good but haven't used them yet.  I've got mostly cheapy carbon arrows so not sure if its worth the hassle or if I should just go replace the entire arrow since its not much more money.

I fletch my own arrows, and will replace if they get cut, damaged, or warped badly.  I shoot aluminum arrows, so it is easy to scrape off old vanes and glue.  Carbon you may need to be more careful of damaging the shaft. 

I use the Vador uni-fletching jig.  Has worked well for me for many years.

If my arrows are ripped or torn at all.

Yea, sometimes I let it go in a middle of a shooting sessions, but that's it.  The tears or one less fletching affects the trajectory, flight and spiral of the arrow. When shooting out to 40 yards it makes no difference. Past 40 yards, your arrows can show tuning and arrow weight problems.

I have not used the NAP Quick Fletch but also here good things. I also shoot  cheap arrows. Easton axis 340s which you can find for 50 buck for a half dozen on certain sites. I than buy 75 grain inserts to add a little more FOC.  I have it set to a right helical 3 degrees! Shoot straight!

My practice arrows don't get replaced until there beat up badly. My hunting arrows are like new . I shoot Gold Tip Hunter most of the time but I made my own fletching jig, cut my own arrows . 

Buy a jig and flech your own, it's fun

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
