I need to know the best way to remove the old fletchings of my arrows, also what kind of glue is best to replace them. Thanks in advance,  Bryan

Assuming you have aluminum shafts like me, I use an exacto knife with a concave blade. It skins them right off glue & all.

I still like the Fletchtight glue best. Be sure to clean the shafts with some MEK to remove any glue remnants or anything that might affect the glue adhesion.

I use a typical utility knife to trim off the old vanes/feathers - anything kinda sharp will do.
I have tried a few different adhesives and, so far, found Duravanes adhesive to be the best. This adhesive is somewhat difficult to find, but can be ordered from Bowman.com.
If your using carbon/graphite shafts the adhesion will be greatly increased is you dip the end of the shaft in clear laquer.
