  • Q:

    I've made my own arrows for decades - but have never used wraps. I thought I would try it but have a question for you. I primarily shoot 2315's aluminum shafts. I see where wraps go from 7/8 inch wide on up. Is the overlap negligible as to not affect the arrow flight - and- is the overlap a concern at all? What size width should I order for the 2315's..?.. ...Thanks much..... Dave...

      A:

      The overlap, if any, is negligible and will have no impact on how your arrow shoots. For your 2315 shaft, you will want to go with our 3Rivers Cap Wraps, item #7979X, or the Bohning ArroWraps in 1.25" size, item #7981X.

      A:

      I don't shoot aluminum so I'm not sure about the amount of overlap with the wraps for a 2315 diameter shaft.
      I do however have overlap with my carbons, more than a little, and it in no way affects spine or arrow flight.  The wraps are great for visibility and significantly increase the feather adhesion.

      A:

      Dave,I have learned the hard way to try and get the closest fitting width possible to prevent a large overlap - the reverse is problematic too in that you may not get a wrap wide enough. I used a cigarette paper to get the exact circumference and bought the wrap accordingly. This is more a problem with the bigger shafts as your 2315 would require. A small overlap has not caused me any problem as far as flight is concerned - I would keep the overlap to a minimum, however. One of my earlier errors using wraps was to use a second one when the first one was not large enough - now that was a mistake - way too thick - small overlap no problem. Good luck. As far as size, I would go for 1 1/4" for your 2315, but try to use something to give you the exact circumference, like the cigarette paper, a piece of tape, etc. will give you a better idea.

      A:

      The overlap is totally negligible. I've been using wide on thin Beman MFX and Easton Axis. I've always had good arrow flight.

      Get a piece of tape wrapped the row with it untape it and measure it.
      As for arrow flight does not affect it at all.
      The plus to wraps easy to on do and rewrap.
      Good luck

  • Q:

    How much does each wrap weigh?
    Asked on 12/31/2013 by TLY

    3 answers

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      These weigh all different grains. This depends on the length, width and material of each wrap.

      Answered on 1/2/2014 by Art from 3Rivers Archery
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Depending on width and length the weight will be 2-5 grains. I have never found the wraps to be a hindrance to proper shooting and flight and they can really dress up an arrow. Be careful to select the correct width that will allow complete coverage. When I first obtained wraps, I got them too narrow and left a gap of 1/8"which was not suitable and I had to re-order - better to have them too wide than too narrow. Good luck. I use them on wood arrows and the width can be an issue. Carbons, tapered woods, and some aluminums, width will not be a problem. Good luck to you.

      A:

      I have no idea how much they weigh, but it is extremely minimal.
      I enjoy shooting long distances, 70-100 meters and if I miss, which
      can be often, the added visibility far outweighs the weight of the
      wrap when it comes to being unable to find an arrow.
      I'm shooting longbow, so there are so many other variables that may
      make my arrow fly differently besides the cap wrap. Plus I feel the
      feathers stick to the cap wrap much better than the raw carbon fiber.
      I hope this helps

  • Q:

    I am planning on making some arrow shafts at home and maybe staining them and applying a few coats of wipe on Minwax polyurethane to finish. Will these wraps' adhesive adhere to polyurethane and also without the stain bleeding through?

      A:

      I have no recent experience with wooden shaft arrows. The wraps cling very well to the carbon shafts coated finish. I cannot image any difficulty with a Minwax polyurethane finish and the wraps. As long as they are clean and dry I predict success.

      Wraps will adhere to urethane. I use spray Sparurethane [waterproof & flexible]Make sure its good & dry before wrap is put on. Water base stains work best.

      After you stain the arrow and put the Minwax on them. Simply roll the wrap on and you wont have any issue of it bleeding threw

    I was wondering, how well do the reflective wraps work, after passing through and animal and covered with blood? What I mean is, do they still glow when hit with your flashlight?

      A:

      I have used reflective wraps (I like white) for some time now and I'm
      satisfied with their performance and their look. After pass through shots I
      simply clean the entire arrow and feathers with mild soap & water. There
      has been no "loss of reflectiveness" from the wraps. In Namibia Africa last
      August, I passed through 3 animals & I'm still using the arrows with the
      same wraps I originally installed.

      A:

      I have not purchased the reflective wraps from 3Rivers but assume they are no different than any other coloring on an arrow. i have yet to see an arrow completely covered in blood to where it was completely red instead of being able to see the original stain and coloring. Blood does not stick to it like applying paint or stain...but more like getting it on rag and wiping it quickly ....very quickly along a length of plastic. It is sparse but consistent..... I am confident the reflective material would still show with or without the blood and doubt it would be impacted much more than 20%. Mud would be larger concern but again....unless it is buried I doubt it will block it all....and even partial reflective capability is better than the alternative.
      I would give them a try...but if in doubt...save some blood from next steaks or chicken you buy at store....shoot the arrow through the blood in bottom of bag after removing meat. I am sure you will see it is very thin and not going to stop the light from hitting the reflective tape. Good luck ...

      A:

      My primary reason is to find the arrow when I miss and I shoot in low light
      right before dark.I shot at a doe in Tenn last year and missed. The arrow
      went into thick bushes. No way to find it even in the daylight. I found the
      arrow with my flashlight in less than 30 sec.The blood does not soak all
      over the arrow, most of it runs off. Most arrows that go through deer are
      found it the sight of the kill.

      A:

      If they are not covered or submerged in anything you will pick it up. It is not a bright glow however more soft in my opinion. If I can give you advice, take them out in the dark before a hunt and get used to how they look in torch light that you know what to look for. It is worth it to invest in one of those "blood trail" headlights like the one Gerber makes. It lights up blood in a different colour to simplify blood trailing at night. At least you will have best of both worlds

      I do not believe it will have any effect on your arrow flight, but if there is a gap in the wrap it is probably not going to stay attached to the arrow as well as it should.

      I actually have used cap-wraps on all sizes of shafts and never had them come-up-short. I'm guessing that if such a gap were present it would not affect arrow flight.

      I dont about flight but fletching would be a lot harder. You can always try it and see if you already bought them but I'd just get the correct size and go with that.

      It doesn't seem to matter, I purchased these cap wraps for my wooden shafts
      (5/16) and they worked great and wrapped all the way around. I have in the
      past used some made fore carbons on my wife's aluminum shafts and they had
      a gap. They seemed to to fly good.

  • Q:

    Do these cap wraps have the Bohning logo on them?

    In particular I'm curious about the white (plain, so I'm assuming not), and the Birch Bark (Bohning seems to've added their logo to this the other year where they didn't previously) --- have they gone back to no logo?

    Lastly, what colour are they on the reverse side? The first set of Bohning Birch Bark arrow wraps I bought were white on the adhesive side and applied quite nicely, the second set were thicker and a metallic grey on the adhesive side and didn't apply as nicely --- I actually have most of a pack left and am unlikely to use them again.
