Wraps definately reduce the risk of cutting into the carbon, thats also why I use a dull knife. I want to scrape off the old glue without cutting into the shaft.Midlife Crisis said:Next set of arrows you fletch - you should use wraps. They make vane adhesion much easier and make refletching simple, too - without destroying any carbon.
Acetone is a carbon based solvent, its not a good idea to expose a carbon shaft to acetone for more than just a wipe down. I recommend staying away from acetone on carbon and stick to alcohol.seminoletex said:remove what you can and dip the arrow in acetone for about a minute and what ever is left in the shaft will come off easy.
