Yep I bought the stuff because my whisker biscuit was tearing off my blazers. The shrink fletch was so easy a child could do it. Also you can run a razor down them and they come right off. My arrows seem to shoot fine.

Good to know, I am wanting to do a set of 6 in the shrink fletch and was a bit skeptical

it went on really easy...just dip the real slow at an angle and you can watch the wrap shrink down and the wrinkles come out...I also kept my broadheads on and lined the fletches up with the blades..pretty slick...now i just need to shoot

Let me know how they do for you. I've always been told to stay away from them unless you are in a pinch. I have always went with a normal wrap and blazers. The wraps make the blazer's stick to the shaft very well.

hint for gettin the blazers to stick to shafts: use sandpaper and scratch the surface up real well, then use 90% isopropyl alchohol to clean and let dry. then use the pine ridge or whatever its called glue. ive fletched a million blazers with that setup and never had one just come off. honestly.

bout the shrink fletch: my buddy went to them in the middle of the season and so far he loves them, like stated above, its so easy cummins or pinwheel could do it

Glad to hear they work for your buddies. I might have to get some and try it just for the heck of it. Hard to beat good ol blazers though when you are shooting a biscuit. :D

I've used them for the last couple of years and the work great. No problems at all.
