I can't get these things to stick consistently! Some I can't tear off to save my life, most I can pick off like grapes. Am I missing the boat on something here? Should i switch glues? Should i be prepping the shafts a certain way? Should i acetone the base of the blazers? This is what I'm using GT 22's, Goat Tuff Glue, and green and black mini blazers. Someone please help me! :sad:

I sand my shafts with 150 grit sand paper & wipe the dust off with a dry paper towel & have had no troubles. You do have to let them sit a little longer(about 1 minute) than say AAE vanes. I also use goat tuff glue.

Do not clean the base of the Blazers with anything but a wipe with a clean rag. I have used Goat Tuff with them and I have never had a vane adhere more tightly to a shaft.

I've got three dozen GT 22s and what I do is use very fine steel wool to kinda take the glaze off and I use wraps. The Blazers will stay on the wraps and try the Locktite Super Glue. You won't have any come off after that.

I did GT 22's about a 1 1/2 months ago with Blazers and using 95% isopropanol to clean the GT 22 shaft. (I have access to 95%, but you can get 91% commercially. I am not sure the extra 4% makes any difference, just don't use 70%). I didn't touch or clean the Blazer per manufacturer's recommendations and then used Bohning Quantum XT. I can't rip those things off. I have had a couple bury in a hay bale and they still hold strong. I haven't lost a single one yet.
