I've used special order wraps before. But this year I just went with bohning 4 inch xs wraps and they turned out great.

When I shot 4" feathers, I got some 7" yellow fade to white wraps with a deer head at the front. Since I switched to Blazers I've been using the Bohning 4" wraps.

I got mine from arrowwraps.com can’t speak to durability yet but they sure look nice.

One Stringer if you want some fancy ones. For plain, the ones from Sagittarius Archery are great, as well as their feathers.

Onestringer hard to beat good luck Lewis

From: JL

Been doing Onestringer's for a long time. One thing I had them do was make the base out of reflective material/tape so I can find the arrows (or animal if ever need be) at night. It works great!

I buy Bohning 7" wraps, cut them in half and use 3.5" on the shaft.

I like the custom one stringers as well (very reflective after dark and custom numbered etc) but found they were a pain to get off to refletch. The ones I have are almost like a sticky tinfoil?.. Any tips on how to remove from FMJs?

25-Feb-20
^^^^ Turn your wife’s hairdryer on “Hot” and “High”. They peel off great.

From: yeager
25-Feb-20
On my FMJ’s, I just use a utility knife and then clean the shaft with acetone.

From: Scooby-doo

You can buy super thin contact paper that is vinyl and cut them yourself. A lot of recurve and longbow guys do just that. Remember a 7" wrap and a lighted nock can add as much as 30-35 grains of weight to the rearend if the arrow so it will stiffen them a tad bit. Shawn

Thanks guys!.. But I don’t have a wife or a hair dryer! ;) lol I’ll figure something out

From: joehunter

Put them in boiling water for couple minutes will come right off clean.

From: PECO

I have a wife with a hair dryer, and I have a good heat gun. A hair dryer is a lot less expensive than a heat gun. A hair dryer or heat gun is a great tool to have if you do your own arrow building.

From: Matt

I spin the Onestringer wraps over a low stove flame for 3-4 seconds. They soften and peel right off no problem.

From: JL
25-Feb-20
To take off the Onestringer wraps, I use a fletching remover and it works pretty good. That way I don't have to do anything to the carbon shaft that could mess it up.

From: Teeton
25-Feb-20
Like stated above I cut 7 inches in half.

To remove, I run then under the utility sink hot water and scrape them off.

Onestringer for me too.

From: Jasper

Looks like Onestringer is the place to go. I’ve heard a lot of people getting them off EBay as well. Thanks for all the help!

So what is the purpose of the wrap if you have to remove it to install new vanes?? I make my own arrows and was thinkin about changing things up.. Thanks

26-Feb-20
^^^^ A few reasons why I use them. 1). They make it easier to find your arrows. 2). Vanes adhere to them first time, every time. 3). I think they look cool.

From: JL
26-Feb-20
^Empty....good question. One thing I started to do was shorten/shift the wrap and leave enough bare shaft at the end to glue the vanes to. That way if a vane gets torn or ripped off, I don't mess up the wrap replacing the damaged vane.

From: PECO

It is much easier to remove a wrap vs removing fletching that is directly glue to the shaft.

I use a wrap because I have ruined a couple of arrows cutting of damaged vanes that were glued directly to the shaft. Wraps and 3 vanes are much, much cheaper than an arrow shaft.

From: Bou'bound

Or just don’t ruin the arrow removing the vanes. There is actually a replacement exact type blade they has a notch in it for removing fletching perfectly. Xman sent me a couple ten years ago and I still have them

From: Scoot

I'm with Matt- I find it much easier to take off a wrap than the vanes. Quicker, cleaner, and easier, so I use wraps. Plus, my arrow looks better to me like that.

26-Feb-20
Oki Doki.. Seems like its a personal preference and i agree, they look cool. Thanks

^x2...This. I have the notched tool to strip vanes off in one swoop. It doesn't hurt the shaft.

I buy full sized tape on eBay and cut it down with a paper cutter you’ll get enough to do 10-20 dz arrows for $20 or so

To clean old wraps off I put three or four arrows in the sink with hot water then use a knife to cut each feather off the rest of the wrap will peel right off easy as long as you do them quickly

I refletched an arrow yesterday. The blazer vanes were glued directly to the shaft. I bought some of those box cutter blades with the notch in them. I got that tip on this site. Removing the vanes was very easy, I wish I'd have know about this long ago!

OneStringer for me as well, quick toss over a flame, peels off easy. Quick alcohol rub down and I'm ready for a new wrap and fletchings.

HAHA-I love these. Arrow Tech makes them.

From: smarba

I was going to say the same as Shug: often 6" wraps are the same price as 3"...but with a razor blade and straight edge, a dozen of 6" become two dozen 3" which are perfect for any of the short vanes such as Blazer.

"Or just don’t ruin the arrow removing the vanes."

If only you had provided that sage-like wisdom sooner.

I can let me car insurance lapse now too, because I just won't get in an accident.
