Fletching / Wraps, How often do you change

1304 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  arrowwrapsunlim
I have been fletching my own arrows for a couple years and this year picked up some cheap wraps to try. I love them but not my final choices, I just picked up some cheap ones to see if I liked them or now. I will order some from the guys on here, they have a good variety and great prices.

I was just wondering how often you guys change your arrows.

I just change if there is some damage, be it on shafts, vanes or nocks.

Otherwise, I keep shooting them.

Brian, how do you change fletches with out messing up the paint? Do you have to remove the cresting and repaint it every time?.

That is the major disadvantage of paint. In most cases you do have to strip the entire shaft depending on the application of the fletch. With carefull prep you can do it without striping the paint from the shaft. You might think that it would be costly to uses paint, but in the long run its a whole lot cheaper. A 1oz. jar of paint can last one to two years with proper care. The cresting tool is also relatively cheap and I save more money in the long run using this method versus wraps.
