NAP QuickFletch Twister
This product works well. They're very easy to use. Just make sure you put them on your arrow in COMPLETELY boiling water or else you run the risk of getting air bubbles. I use small-diameter Easton Axis arrows and hardly ever get bubbles. They can be pretty tough. I've had a few go into my bag target and the fletching looked just fine after yanking the arrow out, just wrinkled a little bit. But sometimes a bad one will rip real good. They are kind of expensive in my opinion.

Junk dont waist your money!!!
I was Lucky enough to Draw a Elk Cow Tag here in Ky. It was an Archery tag, and I shoot Carbon Express Crossbow. Long story made short. I praticed so much that I wore out the fletchings on my Carbon Express Surge Bolts. My local Pro Shop suggested I go to a 2inch vane. I ordered a 6 pak QuickFletch Twister. When they came in I followed the instruction to the letter. After waiting a day for them to complete dry I was ready to shoot. My first shot was a disaster, at 30 yards while shooting from my bench the bolt hit my Delta Deer in the hip. 24 inches off from my aim point. when I walked up and looked at the bolt it was easy to see the problem. the sleeve had broken just past the fletches and they were now in the center of my bolt.I had problems with the other 5 bolts. I sent an e-mail to NAP and after 7 days still no anwser. I WILL NEVER waist my money on this product again!!!!

good for bolts
I use these on my crossbow bolts. they took my groups from 1/2in @ 40yrds to 1/4in or less @ 40yrds. also picked up some speed i use a heat gun i can do 12 in about 10 minutes less time then to boil water.

I haven't tried it, but I wouldn't imagine that being a problem. I could see it making them less durable as there is less keeping them on the arrow, but don't think it would be that big of a deal. Although I don't see 10 gr really messing you up that bad anyway.
The old fletching will peel right off. I just use my bare hands and fingernails or a butter knife. then use very fine grit sand paper or gently scrape the old glue with a butter knife. You are simply trying to smooth out the glue, not totally remove it. then apply your quickfletch. I have done many arrows with the butter knife technique with excellent results.
You need to completely remove the old vanes because these consist of a single piece containing a wrap and three vanes. There are several very good tools available for the job. Look for one that fits your budget but will still do a good job. After removing the old fletches and the shafts are smooth, use something like the NAP shaft prep wipes to get the shafts ready to permanently grip the new QuckFletches.
Yes, strip the old fletches, remove as much of the old glue as you can. I then use scotchbright to dress the surface for better adhesion. Clean the shaft with alcohol or nail polish remover. Let dry and then apply the Quick Fletch. Dip in boiling water slowly to allow the tube to shrink and push any bubbles out before it seals.
I use them to replace old vanes. Make sure you get all of the old vanes and GLUE off of the arrow befor putting the new vanes on. They make tools to remove old vanes, But I Just use a knife. Be sure to dip them into the hot water slowly so you don't create air bubbbles in the fletch tube.
Butt the Quick Fletch up against the nock., when it shrinks there will be a very small gap between the nock and the Quick Fletch. The distance between the top of the vane and the nock was almost identical to my factory fletched arrows.
Yes. Becuse they are smaller than 4" vanes, they create less drag going through the whisker biscuit. Should improve your arrow speed a little. You'l know if your grouping is a little high when you first start using them.
I have seen people use them with a whisker biscuit. They will not last as long, nor will any other type of vane in a capture rest. They worked fine until the biscuit started to peel the vanes off. Like I said, I have seen this many times with glued vanes and the whisker biscuit. You could try a small dab of glue at the tip of the vane to give it a ramp effect when it passes through the biscuit.
I use a Whisker Biscuit and I just put these on about 30 minutes ago, took em outside just now to test 'em out, and they worked great. I had an incredible group (within an inch, I'm surprised I didn't shoot some of the arrows) and I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure my speed went up as well.
I refletched every arrow in the house with these. My wife shoots a whisker biscut and there seems to be no problems at all. Just better grouping and they seem to shoot faster but dont no if this is the case no chronograph.
There is no need to off-set these because each vane has a small flair-out on the back of one side of each vane turning the shaft clockwise towards the target (right helical). If you look close at the pics you can see what I'm talking about. These are awesome and I'll never go back to the glues and razorblades I used to use to refletch my arrows.
I read on another site of an individual who did this by putting a "slight" twist on it before it entirely set-up. He claimed great results... My only hold back personally, which will keep me from attempting this, would be as to how would one be sure to put the same degree of offset or twist on each shaft before it set up?... Then again, the manufacturer claims double the spin rate and tighter grouping with a standard install, so I don't think it would be worth the bother? JMHO...
