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.
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.
Like everyone said on this thread, Only replace fletching if needed!! As for wraps unfortunately you have to chage them when you reflecth.
