has anyone placed arrow wraps just foward of there vanes? and what would be the grain weight difference between regular wraps or using paint? i want to add alittle weight to my arrows but, was thinking of adding a wrap or paint just in front of the vanes. and would it affect arrow flight much?

Why go in front of the vanes, don't want to refletch? Wraps weigh roughly 10 grains so I would think they will be a little heavier than paint but not much. This will also affect your FOC and spine but not anything to worry about. Go ahead you can always peel the wrap off.

i tear up alot of vanes and in turn would tear up wraps alot re-fletch all the time. and was wondering if anyone had done this and how it affected the arrow. it's something to try and experiment with.

Use wraps and blazer vanes and you will not tear them up, I have been shooting one of my sets of arrows for over a year with the same wraps and blazer vanes and have not lost one vane or wrap and I shoot them through a Whisker Biscuit. Get your wraps from DJ (bowmanhunter) here on AT or http://www.bownamhunter.com I glue my blazers on with loctite gel and put a dab of regular super glue at the front and rear of each vane after it's fletched.

I would have to think that the weight placed there would throw the FOC off a bit too much. Maybe a reflective "band" but I wouldn't go with anything bigger in that area. Just my 2 cents:)
