      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Glue to use on Fletching?

Recommended Posts

Scott M

As happens when practicing, I've managed to rough up the fletching on a few arrows, making their flight very untrue. Just was wondering what the right kind of glue to use is. Would any old archery shop carry some? Thanks.

We used to have an archery shop and I fletched all the arrows. Bohning Fletch Tite is what I used.

Franks suggestion of Bohning will work. You may want to also post this question in the archery forum as there are a few there that could really help also.

Use the Bohning Fletch-Tite Platinum for carbon shafts.

I'd buy by the gallon and use a dispenser bottle. This made laying a consistent bead much easier and a professional done arrow.

There are other products out there, thats just what I liked.

I'd recommend buying a can and dispenser bottle over the tubes. Shelf life isn't that long so maybe splitting the cost and can with a friend. Depending on the brand you can get or solvent based adhesive and being able to thin will prolong the shelf life.

Goat tuff is what I use. Seems to be a little stronger than fletch tight

Super glues do have a stronger bond, but I find the residue is a pain to clean off the shaft. I use the Goat Tuff for inserts, but If your planning on refletching your own arrows I would recommend the Bohning brand of fletching glue.

You may have to go to a pro shop for the Goat Tuff, but you should be able to find the Bohning glue at any major sporting goods store that carries archery equipment.

Just a couple questions on the topic here.

What do you use to clean the carbon arrows before you fletch them?

Is there any special type of fletching that should be used?

One more ... how long does it take for the two mentioned glue's to dry?

Thanks for the info on this helpfull topic.

I use rubbing alcohol to clean the shaft, and then wait about 10 mins per fletch with the Goat Tuff... It probably doesnt need that long.
