Arrows 101: How to Take Care of Your Fletchings

Fletchings are important to stabilizer the arrow in flight. They will wear and tear eventually, so we need to either replace or fix them.

 Here are some examples: 

  1. Loose Fletching
  2. Ripped Fletching
  3. Missing a Section of Feathers
  4. Missing a Fletch

Feather fletching tip: If your feathers get flat or crinkled, rejuvenate them with steam. Simmer some water on the stove or use a steam iron to bring your feathers back to life. After a few minutes of steaming, they’ll look new again.
