Single pin bow sights: Are they really better? - posted 4 years ago

Brady- Single pins are the way to go. To fix the scenario of a buck moving after you have set your yardage, I use the "trick pin" setup.
This setup is specific to each bow and takes a few hours to figure out. But once you have it dialed in, anything under 45-50 yds (depending on your setup) uses the pin in the fixed location
For a single pin shooter, the trick pin is a must and makes the single pin unbeatable.

How to: Build the perfect arrow part 2 - posted 4 years ago

@Brady- I noticed it on my Carbon Express KV Hunters and Beman Arrows. I feel the "runnier" glues can soak into the the arrow and get in between the fibers... causing the back of the arrow to swell a bit and become brittle.
SInce switching to a "thicker" gel like glue, I have noticed the glue doesn't penetrate the shaft as deep and it stays closere to the surface between the vane and the shaft.
Switching glue types has not affected the adherence of the vanes to the shaft in my experience.

Brady- This is a great article.
During my arrow prep over the last few years, I have noticed that Gorilla Super Glue makes the carbon brittle. When it binds the fletching to the shaft, the carbon soaks it up and the back end of the shaft isnt as resistant, causing it to split on occassion.
I started using loctite super glue gel (Blue bottle) and it is a great option. You can pick it up at the local hardware store and one bottle will fleth 2 dozen arrows.
