    Kinda funny… I just got done fletching some arrows and then wanted to see if there were any new posts. I used a straight jig with a little offset, 2” blazers and a lot of glue.. they fly awsome.

    I have been shooting Mathews going back to the first Q2. I have had every model since then, up to and including the Drenaln. It all of that time, my dealer has never backed out the limbs whe working on a bow.
    So, are there presses where this isn’t necessary, or are they in just too big of a hurry? Should I insist that they do so?

    I have been fletching my own arrows forever and continue to do so with the blazers. I spoke directly with Bohning before attempting to do so and they told me that the wraps and the vanes have a chemical treatment on them to facilitate the bond.

    I never handle my arrows, wraps or vanes without washing my hands first and even then I try not to touch the surfaces that will see the wraps or the glue.

    If I think I have touched them I wipe them down with alchohol.

    Blazers are awesome and I have never had them let loose! Good Luck!

    Great post – I like to put a dot of glue on the leading edge of the vane. I do this for my friends with whisker biscuits so they don’t peel back.

    I enjoyed your post about the blazer vanes. I would like to add one more thing if you don’t mind. I have found it helpful to rough up the base of the vanes with sandpaper and use a Q-tip and swipe them with acetone. Seems that they adhere better to the carbon arrow shafts.

    Were those an upgrade. They look to be harder. I have a press I bought from Toad @ A/T and my rollers seem to be too soft. Was wondering if you could tell me more about the rollers in the pictures/ Thankz, Dale

    I just bought a new DXT this week. After my local Mathews dealer set in up he handed it to me and ask me to go play with it at the indoor range. As soon as he handed it to me, I noticed the mathews logo on the top limb was smeared. Has anyone else had this problem? I did not say anything to him because I figure he would think I was and idiot. Matter of fact my hunting partner bought one the same time I did and his bottom limb looks the same. I am sure that it happen in the press. I know it does not affect the performance of the bow but it does looks like crap now. I have been shooting mathews bows for years and had them in and out of presses adn never had this happen. Just hard to drop that kind of money for a bow and it already look like it has been used for several years. Do you think this is something he would fix for us or are we just out of luck? :-S Would this be a warranty issue?
