What do all you guys use to remove old arrow wraps, so i can refletch and wrap? I usually just scrape them off, but still have some junk of there, but didnt know if anybody had a better way. Was thinking of using a hair dryer to heat them up. Thanks everyone!

Place a glass of water in the microwave and get it to boiling and then let them arrows soak in it for about 15 minutes and then I use a Zip Strip. Some acetone on a paper towl to get the remaining glue off.

A hair dryer will work also. Thats what I do. Hold the arrow infront of it for a few minutes to get that glue softened up and then they will peel right off. After that I just use some denatured alcohol on a rag to get the sticky glue off thats left behind.

Wraps

I use standard paste auto wax on the wrap area. Wipe the wax out just like you would on your car. Wraps still stick good but come off clean, ready to repair and fletch.
