Dip it in pull them out shake and watch as half of your blazer vanes come off and fall to the floor ! Totally disapointed !

Quick & Easy DIY
Very easy to do and they look great too! It puts just enough color on the end of your arrow you can find it easier. It only took minutes to do. I'll do this for my arrows from now on.

Too Good to be true
I have bowhunted for 25 years and have always used a 4" feather. After the bow shop in my town closed I decided to give these a try. As the title says these are too good to be true. The application is easy and my groups have tightened up considerably. When applying first take a medium grit sandpaper and roughen up the application area slightly then clean thoroughly. The secret to good adhesion is having a large deep pot for the water. Be sure the pot is deeper than the wrap is long and bring the water to a ROLLING BOIL for about a minute. Slide the wrap on and slowly dip it in the water. I let it stay in for 15 seconds before removing.
I applied the wraps to 6 arrows about 6 weeks ago and have shot each arrow at least 100 times and the wraps have held up extremely well. The only tear was caused by another running in on the shaft of an arrow already in the target. After this happened I took an X-acto knife and out the loose area which was about the size of a pea, I then put one drop of fletching cement in the exposed area and rubbed it around the edges of the torn area which were still glued down. After letting the arrow dry it flies just like the others. This is a GREAT product you will not be sorry. Also arrows are shot through a QAD drop arrow on a Martin Onza 3 pulling 72 lbs.

They are ok
Followed the directions and all looked well. After shooting the arrows these were put on about 4 time they began too slide forward on impactwith the target. I cant recommend these if they are going to do that with only a couple shot. These were shot from a recurve bow with 29 lbs pull.
