Been using recommended super glue mentioned by someto refletch, but find it very difficult clean the glue off when I need to refletch the bolts. I find myself digging in and occasionaly gouging the shaft to get the shaft clean to refletch. Is there something a little more flexible without out leaving a residue thats hard to remove in future fletching>
Thanks

If you can remove your nocks, just snip your old vanes down to the rib, and soak the base and glue off in a vial of acetone.
About the only other good cement is fletch tite but takes too long to suit me, and you'll still want to soak in acetone.
If you can't remove your nocks, wrap an acetone-soaked paper towel around the vane area, and wrap in foil for about 15 minutes.
Acetone will dissolve your nocks.

I just use a replaceable razor blade folding knife. Never use a dull blade. Make sure it's sharp and never try to scrap off too much in a single stroke.
I also never use acetone because it affects the replacement vane adhesion.
My Quik Spins glue down so tight you can't pull them off with a good set of pliers.
