I was just wondering how you guys/gals keep from getting rust in the bolts of your bows? I am going to R-100 this weekend and its calling for rain the whole weekend :thumbs_do and was trying to keep the bolts on my bow from getting the dreaded rust in them and don't know what is out there to prevent this. Any help would be appreciated.

Great score just hoping the rain will let up a little for the weekend. So what do I do just put a little vasoline on a q-tip a just dabb at the bolt heads or what??? Just worried that the ol lady will think that I'm cheating on her with my bow :tongue:.

Dip a Q-tip in veg-oil and dab the heads on screws.

I saw something in the hunting section the other day about a guy who said that putting clear nail polish on bolt heads stops rust. Might check that out.

Rust

Get some 316 stainless bolts and paint the heads the color you want before putting them in

Heck, and all this time I thought having a little rust on your bow components was a "badge of honor". :wink:

Toothbrush and just regular rust off cleaner is what I use but when im going hunting I dont like to have that scent on it so I normally try let it air out if I know im going to be hunting, but for 3D I wouldnt worry about it.
