      A:

      This works very well as an arrow finish but does take awhile to do by hand.

      A:

      Yes, you can use this for the finish by itself.
      I like the Thunderbird Sealer for a finish as well (Item #4450x).

  • Q:

    What is the shelf life of :
    1. Unopened bottle
    2 Opened bottle

    Best way to store it, and again: Unopened & opened bottles.
    Asked on 4/3/2013 by Dan from California

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I do not have any information on an exact shelf life for Tru-Oil. As long as the bottle is stored with the cap on it should be fine until you use it all. I have never heard of it going bad before.

  • Q:

    I recently bought a old beat up bear super grizzly that I have scrubbed all the finish off of. Would this work on the fiberglass and raw wood to seal it or would a poly spray work better on raw wood and fiberglass?
    Asked on 12/20/2012 by Beastin'

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You will want to use a Poly spray on that bow. An oil finish works better for an all wood bow like a self bow or bamboo backed hickory for example.

  • Q:

    I have an unfinished hickory longbow (one solid piece). If I use this product to finish, after applying snakeskins, could/should I then poly coat it for a stronger, more durable finish??

      A:

      If you use the tru-oil to finish your bow you will not need to use another product. The tru-oil will be enough to protect your bow. Also another product may not be compatible with the tru-oil possibly causing it to be gooey and never dry.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The product is a great stain and can help weather proof a bow. The clear coat is going to do an even better job protecting the bow. i would recommend that you spray over the bow after you have stained it.

  • Q:

    My wood selfbow has been spray painted and hand painted by oil based paints, will this be compatible with the paint on the bow?
    Asked on 4/5/2012 by Mirkwood from Huntsville,AL

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      That will take some testing to see if it will work. I can not say for sure it would work perfectly with the paint you already have on the bow.
