Although I have made my own arrows for years I am new to wood shafts. I wanted to make my arrows from scratch and labored over how to finish them. The dip tubes seem to be the easiest and fastest method but you would need alot of finish to fill the tube and I wasn't sure how easy it would be to get the finish out of the tube. This device seems to be the answer. It was easy to use and left a glass-like finish. The remainder of the finish flowed back in the can for easy clean-up. I was concerned about the finish in the can skinning over so you do have to work fast. I did three coats on a dozen arrows in about 10 minutes then removed the device and closed the can. It seemed to work like a charm.

The idea looks really nifty on the videos. Those videos make it seem like you'll be breezing through arrow capping and adding a clear coat in no time. I even watched those videos several times and thought about it for one year, until I made the purchase.The major problem appears as if the gasket is too narrow. The result was that I would stir up the paint to get it ready. Then try one of those flashy cap dips in the video and not one drop of paint was left on the shaft when I ran it through the eco dipper.Let's examine this. I dropped over $$ dollars in paints, eco dipper and a clear coat. All to have a tool which does not work. My plan is not to return the products. I will burn the paint launch this eco dipper off the next cliff I see. It will be much more satisfying getting revenge rather than returning products after this total disappointment. Besides, shipping is expensive and time consuming.Thanks to the eco dipper and 3 Rivers marketing, I will go back to the hardware store, use a rage steel wool and some Tru Oil to do my home made arrows. Just like my old timer friend showed me years ago. Feel free to see my other reviews. I do give many products high marks when they are good. But this thing is a waste in my opinion. Maybe they should provide a different gasket and some better guidance. But you know after all the marketing, what do they care? Once you bought the products the money was made.I'd give this zero stars if it was an option.

Comments about Eco-Dipper:

Great for the individual only putting lacquer on a doz or so arrows. The Laquer stays in the original container and can be resealed. This way you don't waste expensive Laquer. Just be sure and clean all the Laquer off, the Laquer only peels off the rubber gasket after drying, not the rest of the tool.

      This is a great product. It's very easy to use. All I did was watch the demonstration video and my arrows turned out great. There was no mess to clean up and it doesn't take up alot of space either. I'd recommend it to anyone who builds their own arrows.

          The screw is short not like the one in the picture. I tried things to make it tight but it just flops around. It make it hard to use. It shold have a long screw like theone pictured.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Service and delivery were great as usual. 3 rivers is the best.

              Comments about Eco-Dipper:

              Tried using it with Bohning cresting lacquer on aluminum shafts. Based on the video thought it was going to be a quick, paint saving alternative to a dip tube. Wrong. Could not get the paint to stick at all. Naturally I am trying to crest up before I leave on a trip and needed these done in a hurry. Fortunately I had a little dipper around.

              Followed the videos again and again. Went back and read the questions after I went through this. Dave from 3Rivers mentioned it apparently doesn't work well with Bohning lacquer as i might be the case. If that is indeed the case, then that should have been mentioned in their narrative.

                  Comments about Eco-Dipper:

                  I bought two of these, a quart of clear and a pint of white for cap dipping. The clear works great but when I cap dip I always get a gap from where I start to where the paint finally take hold to the shaft. It's never the same distance so some shafts have a 1/2" gap, some have a 3/4" gap and never in a straight line. The video makes it look like a breeze for capping but good luck. Sounds like I'm not the only one having this issue. I would recommend for clear coat but not for cap dipping.

                        Great product. As a beginner, this was very easy to use. Cleaning the gasket is as easy as letting the lacquer dry and flexing the gasket, and pealing off the excess lacquer. The only concern that I have is cleaning the excess lacquer off the rest of the device - it's not as easy, but it does come off with some effort.

                                I heard people having trouble with using the eco-dipper with other thinner lacquers such as polyurethane. or lacquer. i couldn't order gasket lacquer for it was flammable. to use thin laquers and gasket and probable less mess tilt ecodipper 90' and clamp to high table feed them through vertically. (1)feed an arrow through till the taper for the tip is just sticks out a hair then line up the nock of the next arrow and feed through repeating until your done. i have a tilted floor plate to knock the arrows i finished to lean against the wall or just stop when the next nock is inserted to plug the hole to hang up previous arrow. since the cup on the eco holds the lacquer instead of dripping it into the bucket you only have to dip one arrow and keep coating one after the other, tip to nock.Did 2 coats on a dozen arrows in less than 5 min. good for doing lots of perfect finishes FAST!
