Had to send them back

Postby choclab » Mon Mar 20, 2006 9:35 pm

I got my new arrows the other day, finally. I shot a few rounds with them and they seemed to fly pretty well. Then I started to notice the fletchings were coming off super easy. I could pull them off with two fingers. :pissed: I called my arrow guy and he apoligized and had me send them back to fix them. Cliff was way cool, always has been. He paid for the return shipping and fixed them up for me pretty quick. I don't know why some glues hold and some don't. He said about 1 in 200 batches of arrows do that to him. I guess I am pretty lucky huh? :laughing: I better go buy a lotto ticket. :thumbsup:

He is kind of a higher qaulity arrow builder. My friends and my father use him to and have never had problems. Just lucky I guess.... :toofunny:

Youll always be better off to fletch your own arrows.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

My buddy shoots a whisker biscuit and this made his arrows last longer.

I have all my arrows dipped and crested. My arrow guy fletches them for me after. I usually put an extra drop of glue on the front and back. The last batch were just crap.
