    Default Bohning Platinum glue

    Over on AT seems lots of people are having problems with today's Bohning Platinum and some bad mouthin' it pretty hard.

    So I broke down today and I bought a new tube of Bohning Platinum glue. In big is the name Platinum. The older tubes had name smaller. At home so I used my old Martin stand alone jig with helical clamp. Had to adjust and got what looked like a good seat.
    Removed Bohning vanes from arrow. Used Bohning's Stripper to make sure old glue was removed.
    Used Scotch Brite to further clean and scuff.
    Washed/cleaned with hot water and wiped dry with paper towel. Would have used denatured alcohol, but hardware store was closed.
    Used matching vane in far end of clamp to help seat vane being glued.
    Gave 5 to 7 minutes for each vane before turning and removing from jig.
    Went straight to garage and assembled target bow. Set new 20 yard target.
    No warming up, just shooting. First shot high in bull's eye. Next 4 piled in closer to where they ought to be.

    Will use it for every target in the 3D 30 target event tomorrow. Got that much faith in the new done vanes.

    Same here TEN RING. Loctite gel lasts quite awhile and perfect for the job. Besides read the ingredients same as fletching glue!

    AAE glue has worked on all vanes I have used over the years. Got one bad bottle of goat tough, the vanes fell off like they were put on with water. The dealer told me that goat tough had a bad lot an yep I had the lot #. It seems that glue has shelf life.

    Default Bohning Platinum glue

    Pretty dang brutal conditions and dang lucky I made it through. But I shot every target with the new fletched arrow with the new Bohning Platinum. Right now I gotta say somebody ain't doing something right if they can't get the new Bohning glue to stick vanes. What I ought do is link this to Bohning and ask for a sponsorship. Nope, Bohning ain't sweet heartening me one bit. This is all on my own. That dang stuff works!!!!!

    I have been using the Bohning Platinum for awhile now with no problems. Like the rest of you arrow prep has to be done right in order to insure that the glue does its job. When that is done correct just about any good grade glue will work. I have used the dollar store gel superglue with no problems either. I will keep using the Bohning Platinum for now as it does a great job!
