    Hi Guys
    I've been using Saunders NPV glue for a while now, but sometimes it let's me down and goes off in the tube (even when sealed). I use 3 × 4" feathers on my trad arrows and 4 x 2" Blazer gains on my compound arrows, what's the best glue to use for my fletching.

    I use the gorilla gel glue, it works the same as any other fletching glue I’ve tried

    if you clean the surfaces prior any type of super glue should work fine. I like the ones with the longneck because I can lay a fine bead of glue. Gel works best as its not as messy to work with

    I do the same. GG is awesome in both gel and liquid. I don't use anything else.

    Another vote for Gorilla Super glue here.

    I also use regular GG for inserts

    I just used the Gorilla Glue Gel the first time the other day on my blazers. Three drops, spread it on the vane and into the jig. Worked great and easier to use than the 5 or so specialty fletching glues I’ve used in the past. Word is it lasts really well in the bottle to.
