i had one of my limbsavers detach the other day and although i found them and put them back i am worried that the adhesion may not be as strong as before..does anyone know of a strong enough adhesive that can be used on these but will not mar the limb finish in case i want to take them off?...any replies would be appreciated....

Goop

I would think that something like Goop would work just fine.

I would not use goop. Goto your local hardware store or craft store and get the "best" double sided tape you can find. Ought to work just fine. Remember to clean the surfaces that you are attaching too. Another great source is the automotive store - ask for double sided molding tape.

I second the automotive body side molding tape. That stuff STICKS!. Just make sure you clean both surfaces to be joined with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. You can get it at any pharmacy and the label is clearly marked. According to the Easton Axis arrow commercial that plays CONSTANTLY at my local indoor range, the 71% alcohol can contain some oils, etc, that can prevent adhesion. (My daughter can repeat the whole script from memory, we've heard it so much)

I don't know if you have a Radio Shack or Ace Hardware Store in the Philippines???..... but look for the double adhesive "supermount" tape made by 3M Products. I also use this for mounting my stick on rest, it's super strong and quite easy to remove (if need be).
