I have used wraps on my vertical bows with no problems. If you figure in the weight to make sure you are within your target total weight then it should be fine. You also have to pay attention to you Front of Center (FOC) weight.

I've used them for along time on my vertical also
I was just kinda wondering about the spine and wearing from the flight rail

Wear is just not something I was thinking about in your original question. I guess if the rail was lubed often enough then wear would be minimal.

I’ve used wraps several times. And yes they wear a little. I’ve never had accuracy issues from them. But you must watch where the overlap happens in reference to rail position. I position the overlay 180* from the cock vane. So it’s straight up.
If not it can end up on the rail forcing the shaft to ride high on one rail and maybe affecting accuracy

moved away from them on my vertical bow as well. i like fletching right to carbon. especially for repairs--way easier to replace a single vane than rewrapping and refletching all 3.

I used to use wraps but not anymore. It’s much easier to fletch if you have a single vane to replace! With wraps, you have to strip the whole arrow to replace a vane. Good luck!
