Default Duco??

I've been fetching arrows with Duco for a long time now. However, it's getting harder and harder to find it. Is there something else out there that is comparable and more readily available?

Unless you are using aluminum arrows I have found Loctite Superglue to work very well for fletching. It's available almost everywhere.

You can use gel type super glue or Fletch Tite Platinum and get good results. I order my glue on Amazon or Ebay a couple of tubes at a time for about the price of a single tube at the stores.

Try the fletch tape on carbons. I will never buy the glue again for fletching arrows.

I use the Loctite superglue gel. Carbon arrows. It works best for me.

Sorry for the delay. I shoot carbons and have had "0" issues with the superglue and fletchings. Now if you are using vanes then make sure you put some extra at the front tip to ensure good adhesion.
