    Fletch-Tite is an "old reliable" product that is almost an industry standard. The relatively new "Platinum is an improvement on the older product in my opinion. It gives up none of the advantages, and sets faster, and is more compatible with different shaft finishes, gives better ahdesion. Cuts toal fletching time, by my estimate, by about 25-30%

    This is definitely not the old fletch-tite.I have been fletching arrows for over 30 yrs and have never had feathers fall off till using Platinum. They fell off within 3 weeks of being fletched, and not with heavy use.

      Comments about Bohning Fletch-Tite Platinum Fletching Glue:

      I have relied on Fletch-Tite for decades to assemble and repair arrows. The only problem I've had is matching some shaft materials with some vanes.

          Comments about Bohning Fletch-Tite Platinum Fletching Glue:

          I shoot feather fletched wood, and until now I've used Duco almost exclusively. I decided to try Fletch-Tite Premium in part because of the nozzle design, which looked more precise that the wide nozzle on the Duco tube. Turns out it isuch easier to use, spills less, sticks as well or better than Duco and maybe dries a little faster, too. The slim nozzle also makes it easier to fill voids on a fletched arrow. I think I'll order a few more tubes.

              I use this ti attach fletching to bare arrow shafts. It does a good job, but I have always believed that they charge too much for what you get.

                    Used this product for 15yrs in the white tube with no problem. Finally ran out and used the platinum this year. Same procedure as always, 5 in feathers on cleaned XX75 aluminum. Shot all summer at 3D (in dry weather) worked fine. This fall during hunting, was out in soaking weather. The next morning I grabbed my bow to head out and half the feathers fell off on their own. The others I could pull off easily. Never had a problem with the old glue in the rain. Had to leave camp cause all I had was a tube of platinum with my jig. Thanks for changing a good product and leading us to believe it wood still do the same job. I see that platinum is now only recommended for carbon.

                    Comments about Bohning Fletch-Tite Platinum Fletching Glue:

                    I've used Bohning original Fletch-Tite glue for over 50 years with nothing but excellent results----until I fletched with their Platinum glue. I've even found long-lost wood and aluminum arrows, shot at squirrels years earlier, with the fletching still tight on the shafts. Recently I fletched an extra half dozen Easton Legacy shafts with feathers for an elk hunt using Platinum glue. All the feathers peeled off within one week. These shafts had even been previously fletched with the old Fletch-Tite glue. I stripped the old fletching off, cleaned the shaft with Comet, acetone, and then lacquer thinner, and proceeded to fletch with my Platinum. Fortunately I had many other shafts fletched years earlier with the "old-style" glue. My Platinum tube says to use on aluminum shafting. The glue did adhere to the feathers, but did not bond to the aluminum shaft. I gave this a 1 rating just because Mr. Bohning (deceased) is from my hometown. He would not be very pleased (or stand for) this product today.

                        The tube of glue I purchased about 4 moths ago notes it is suitable for aluminum shafts. I note that Bohning no longer stale dates the tubes as they used to. I note too, that NEW tubes on dealers shelves do not recommend this product for aluminum shafts and Bohning no longer suggests it on their web site. I should have taken 3 Rivers recommendations up front as this product ruined a once-in-a-lifetime Traditional Elk Hunt for me. This is bad business for Bohning.

                          This is an excellent fletching glue. However, as with all adhesives, make sure to do your homework on the substrates you intend to bond. I tried to use this to put Trueflight feathers on 3Rivers pre-finished wooden hunter shafts, and it did not work. Turns out MEK-based adhesives do not bond to gasket lacquer.

                          Even though this has to ship ground, I still received in Washington State 5 days after placing my order. As always, great service 3Rivers!
