    I bought these for my new 3R Hunting arrows. The arrows are awesome! I love them! The "fur" tracers on the other hand, not so much. They were supposed to help me find my arrows when I lost them. However, it soon became apparent to me that they would not work as desired. When I loose an arrow, it goes just underneath the grass, and the tracer does absolutely no good at all.

    In addition, I think the tracers make the arrows look goofy, and ruins the awesome traditional look of the wood. My mom and sister thought that they made my arrows look "cute", seeing as I had installed the Ace replica points, "cute" was not exactly what I was going for. If you do any kind of competitive shooting, or reenactment shooting, these are not a good choice.

    The best way to find lost arrows is with a metal detector.

        Comments about Fur Tracers Visibility Arrow Wraps:

        Got these for my son to help visualize the arrow on the target. They're just OK. Not overly impressed. They do increase the visual appearance of the arrow but they're just not as visible as I was anticipating and would have liked. The fuzz pulls out a bit and have worn thinner since using. I did use fletching tape as one reviewer commented and this worked very well for me. They work very well for arrows with glue on nocks that you want some added target visibility. For the best visibility I prefer a lighted nock, and despite the limitations of a non lighted product, I still feel these are only average and could be improved with a thicker nap to the hair/fuzz on the tape that would increase the visibility. I got the orange color since other reviewers commented this was the most visible color.

        Essential for youth or beginners

              Comments about Fur Tracers Visibility Arrow Wraps:

              I would HIGHLY recommend installing these on youth or beginner's arrows. They make the arrow stand out a lot more and they also produce a little more "drag", which is good because a missed arrow doesn't end up in the next state over. I purchased several different colors and found that each was a bit different. The white ones were very short with a thin band, whereas the lime green ones were very long with very wide bands. I don't think that I would recommend these for more experienced archers. Unless you are planning on taking these with you hunting, I would not suggest using any arrows or bow you are not planning on taking up on the mountain with you. Consistency, always.

              When installing, make sure that the shaft is clean and that there is no overlap when you wrap it around. Shorter is better than longer. As far as durability is concerned, they could outlast the fletching as long as they stay on.

                Comments about Fur Tracers Visibility Arrow Wraps:

                At the age of 67 years, my eyesight is not as good as it once was. I was finding it very difficult to see the point of impact on my target face. I purchased a package of orange fur tracers for my Easton 1916 arrows. Subsequently, I purchased fluorescent lime tracers for my Easton 500 spine arrows. The orange tracers are very visible downrange. The fl-lime are not. Try the product, but try it in orange.

                Comments about Fur Tracers Visibility Arrow Wraps:

                Twelve inches for $[$] plus shipping is steep, but OK if they last. They don't last well. Fur begins shedding after 50+ shots and adhesive beginning to come loose. They DO add good visiblity and don't believe they greatly impact flight. Twelve inches won't do a dozen arrows though. Probably closer to ten.

                    These tracers go on pretty easily as long as you cut them right. They dont seem to affect arrow flight but really don't provide the visual impact I was looking for. If a visual aid is what your looking for, I think people are much better off using bright fletching. Three Rivers CS however, was excellent as always.

                    I love these tracers. I started putting them on my Judo Points for Stump shooting. It really helped establish a mental image of the arrow flight path with instinctive shooting and aids in finding arrows buried under the leaves (even with Judo Points). The adhesive is really poor and for a while I added a drop of glue to the ends to get them to stay put but that is always a mess. I started using fletching tape and that is the ticket. Just go ahead and add a single wrap of fletching tape then wrapped the fur tracer right over the tape, quick easy no fuss. I have now started using fur tracers for target shooting. Who needs lighted nocks when you can use Fur Tracers.

                          Did not last one day on quiver, great idea, faulty adhesive.
                          A bit of humidity in air and fur came off.

                            I have bought several of these. Remove backing with the point of a small razor knife.
                            Major problem with consistant quality, some fur is close to 3/4" long but have received some with nap no longer than 1/4" which are a waste of time and money to install.
                            I would recommend only if consistant quality improves

                              They are great to monitor flight and see your arrow. The problem is getting them off the adhesive strip I have destroyed many in trying to peel off and it rips through the adhesive part even. Also I have had strips that are half the poof almost bare versus others in the same shipment! Once on they are great though just improve the adhesive and quality control of strips.
