Yes, I am a dinosaur and still shoot aluminum arrows. Used the old white tubed Fletchtite for years with great results. Dried in minutes and held like weld. I tried the new platinum, Goat Tuff and a few others with disappointing results. Anybody here got a suggestion ( not switching to carbon).

Yea I recall when they stopped with the white tube and went to the silver color. I had no luck with it on aluminums either. Went to Goat Tuff and have been on the carbon wagon for bout 15 years.

Bohning Archery Premium Fletching Tape, is my choice.
I have used it on natural feather and Blazer vanes. When I need to refletch, I find that this is much easier to remove from the shafts than the liquid adhesives, yet it holds very well. It's also clean, without leaving drips or runs.

If you do use this, make sure the arrow shaft is perfectly clan and dry. I use acetone.
