So I tried several different fletching glues. But just haven't found one that I'm completely satisfied with. What are you guys using?

Bohning blazer bond. Proper prep of both arrow and fletching is key to good adhesion.

x2 on the above statement. I've found arrow wraps help with the glue holding the fletching.

Fletching tape. I will never go back to glue.

I find "instant" bonding glues eventually fail. I've been using Bohning Fletch-Tite Platinum for many, many years on aluminum and carbon arrows. No fancy prep, just sand the shaft, clean the shaft and vane base with alcohol. It takes a bit longer to fletch a dozen arrows, but not significantly.

I shoot feathers.

On carbons and aluminums I use an arrow wrap, fletch tape on the feathers and then a small drop of Fletch Tite Platinum on the leading and tailing edge of each feather. My fletching stays on and I'm hard on my arrows, lots of stumping behind the house and shots at ground hogs.

Best of luck in your search!

Gorilla Glue with the blue top. Use any primer pen on your fletches. You can’t pull off your fletchings with pliers. Don’t over think this.

Gorilla Glue with blue top. It costs 4.50 a tube and can be found anywhere. The vane will fail before it come off the shaft. Simple and effective. I fletch hundreds of arrows per year with this glue. Just my 2 cents :-)

the G5 blue glue works awesome!

I've found getting the glue on the complete contact surface of the vane is more important than the glue. I have used various super glue gels for years and years. Always got decent life, but would have an occasional failure. When I started using the bottles with the wider application tip the bond dramatically improved. My vanes don't come off for years now.

what supenaut said.. I had a shop/lanes 18 years & made nearly every arrow that went out the door + now I build/repair mine & 8 family members. Wood, Aluminums, Carbons, fiberglass fletch with feathers & vanes over 6 decades. Bare shaft, painted, wraps & never a problem & always Fletch tite. Just finished Carbons for kids. 1 set feathers, 1 set blazers bare shafts with Platinum plus fletch tite
