    I have been shooting a recurve for about a year now. I’m using Doug fir shafts and building my own arrows. My arrows are tipped with either grizzlies or zwickey eskimos. The glue on broad head market seems rather small, with only a hand full of companies. Now most of those companies show their...

    Do many people use glue in/glue on adaptors and glue on broadheads with carbon arrows? If so what are the steps for assembly or adjustment if you aren't supposed to heat the arrow? I glued up 5 broadhead arrow combos but 2 don't spin great. I want to heat them to fix them but I'm worried about...

    I recently came into a dozen aluminum arrows that accompanied my new bow to my door. As luck would have it I am shooting tighter groups than I have before, and I am starting to break nocks. I got the new “Marco Nocks” today, and they go onto the taper very tightly. I seem to remember...

    For our club arrows, we are using a combination of Nano 166, Carbon One, and Apollo. They all use those one piece point/inserts that just don't fit very tightly. For years I have used blue glue (Ferr-L-Tite) but we are losing a lot of points in newer 3D and the very dense "oreo" foam targets. I...

    My latex dips aren't as durable as I had hoped. For those who do a top coat with water based poly, what glues work?

    I walked into an archery shop while traveling and saw this gentleman apply vanes to a arrow with a Bitzenburger jig. He would put a bead of glue on the vane and press it on to the arrow hold it for a few seconds and then unclamp the vane turn the arrow and put on the next. I didn’t have the...

    Big fan of GoldTip Arrows, but for the life of me, I cannot find an Adhesive or Glue that doesn't stain the shafts when they dry. Any ideas or suggestions? I have used AAE Max Bond, Dragon Spit, even GoldTip's own glue doesn't work. Thanks in advance, and my apologies if this is in the...

    I got a call from my nephew today. He was given this beautiful longbow, but one of the tip overlays had come off. He wanted to know what glue to use, but that question is out of my realm of knowledge. So wondering if I can get some good recommendations from our members that have experience...

    I built myself a new backstop last week using a rubber horse stall mat. I works great for stopping arrows. Often they bounce off and they penetrate they only make it 5 or 6 inches in. But when I pull the arrows out often the inserts are catching and pulling loose from the arrow. So far...

    Put some inserts in last night, and did my usual fine job of getting my fingers covered in goo. Problem is this time I used AAE Max Impact Insert Glue, so it looks like I was putting tar on my roof or something. I tried everything to clean up my hands when finished, but my hands are still dark...

    Hi all, I finally found some extra long wood arrow shafts and started experimenting with building my own arrows. It's more rewarding than I thought it would be and they are flying much better than I expected. Heavier/slower, but not any less accurate. Most likely it's just that at my skill...

    I want to try carbon arrows but I am concerned with being able to repeatedly remove the glued in insert so the shaft can be cut shorter ¼" at a time during bare shaft testing. I've always used hot melt glue on my aluminium shafts but heat is not supposed to be applied to carbon shafts. So...

    I'm watching a You tube video on installing Feathers using a Bitzenburger jig, just like the one I just ordered. What are your thoughts on Fletching tape (double sided) Vs. Fletching Glue? If you prefer glue, what kind is the best?

    I have a Bear Montana longbow that came from the OEM with a leather wraped handle, arrow rest and side plate. All of which appears to be glued to the bow or it maybe double back tape. I have not removed it yet so I'm not sure how this leather was applied to the bow. I want to replace all this...
