Default Mathews QAD Felt

The felt tape is starting to come off my Mathews QAD. Any suggestions on fixing/redoing?

Never personally done it but I’ve heard of people using mole skin.

as above, and also helps to put some shrink tubing on to secure the moleskin.

Iíve always just contacted QAD and they have sent me a new kit, they have done this for me several times at no cost.

Get a new kit from Quad, or you can mix-match UHDP tape and felt to get quiet and durable. The stuff from QAD is really nice. Also Lucky Stops sells a product called mute stuff is awesome.

I had the exact same issue. I just put a little piece of hockey tape over it and it works great!

Mole skin is dirt cheap and works excellent. If you want it to look prettier, spend the $11 on the replacement felt from qad.

Iíve been using this with no complaints. Last a long time as long as the arrow is clean; if you have foam or whatever else from a bag target on the arrow it will tear it up. Really wanna get fancy can add heat shrink to the arms and the tape in the bottom

I hadn't thought of this but will definitely do it when I put on some mole skin...been shooting my QAD without any felt for the last year since having felt on there seemed to bring with it some inconsistency in arrow flight. But willing to try things out, especially in the summer/off-season. Thanks!

i used the soft side of velcro (like industrial strength). It's held up great.

Same thing was happening to me. I don't know what it's called, but my local bow shop basically put shrinkwrap tubing over it. It's quiet and has lasted a long time.

Stealth strips.

Stuff wears like iron. Use that and do the arms in heat shrink tubing.
