    Well i like weather proof stuff, so, anything cloth like won't be going on my string's. And that's also why i would never shoot feathers. We just get way to much rain here.

    Sorry that made me lol. Or you could use two big wads of gum.....lol That should take care of the adhesive problem also, if your in a bind for limsavers and glue at the same time.
