Arrow wraps
« on: December 15, 2012, 03:28:29 AM »
Trying to decide if I should go with arrow wraps this year or not...

If I go with them I need to build a new sight tape because of the extra weight being added to the arrow... I'm shooting the a/c/c pro hunter w/out wraps I'm about 420grains.

Also wondering if adding the arrow wrap will mess up my foc?

Scream,


I haven't noticed any changes in flight between wraps/no wraps. Tim Endsley from Bad Medicine Archery is building up some new wraps for me and I can't wait to get them on my FMJ's!

I do not use wraps on my arrows.  I have a long draw therefore I have long arrows.  Thus my arrows are heavy and any extra weight addded to the rear of my arrow decreases my FOC.  I don't want that.  Lol.

Wraps make it easier for refletching your arrows with little prep before refletching.  They also add more color to your arrow to help you find it after a shot.  They do have their benefits.  I just choose to not use them for my reasoning above.

I like to use brightly colored arrow wraps to make them more unique to me. Also added color helps make them easier to find.

How long do wraps generally last? I keep thinking about adding them but it seems like an expensive add on as much as I shoot and refletch....

For me it seems easier to find your arrow and see what color red the blood is on it against the white wrap.

I use the Easton heat shrink wraps and I like them a lot, no sticky goo left on the shaft. Here is a pic of my wife's arrows.

Shouldn't have to use a new sight tape as your only looking at about 4-8 grains of difference. It may effect your spine if you are right on the edge though.

i have mixed feelings on them. i go back and forth. i like the way they look but for some reason, every animal i have shot with them, the arrow would break right at the edge or within a inch of where the wrap starts. Im blind in one eye and cant see out of the other so the wrap helped me to see arrow flight.

I use them and love them.  I don't notice the added weight at all and they are easier to see in flight, and finding after a shot.  Really can't go wrong with them, but understand the weight issue as well.
