1) What length wraps should i have?

This depends on a number of variables, covered in the image below.  You'll need to take into account the text you want, the length of fletching and the gap between fletching and nock you want, plus a little big of room so the wrap isnt too cramped.  As a rule of thumb, but heavily depends on your fletching length, outdoor arrows tend to be 120mm in length and indoor 180mm.

2) How many wraps do i get?

As a minimum, all of our Wraps and Mini Wraps come as 12 numbered (unless you choose unnumbered) + atleast 2 spares, so atleast 14 wraps.  Depending on what size your wraps are, you may end up with more if we can fit more onto the material (shame to waste it otherwise!)

3) Can you number the wraps in any way i like?

Yes - if you cant find the option you need, pop in a note or send us an email - all wraps are made from scratch and everything is editable.

4) How do i fit the wraps?

Fear not, instructions come on the backing card of every set we send out - and its not too hard!

5) How easy are they to remove and whats the best way?

They arent "easy" to remove... that's why they don't fall off when you're shooting them, however using the right technique enables you to get them off wiht the minimum of effort.  The best way we have found is to fill a vase with boiled water from the kettle (WARNING - it'll be hot so please be caseful not to burn yourself, keep kids/pets and husbands away!) Dunk your arrows, preferably wrap end first, into the searing hot liquid (rememer the dont burn yourself advice?).  Leave them there for a moment and then take one out - you should be able to peel the wrap off as the heat softened the glue.  You may have to pop the arrow back in to get all of the wrap off, as it will cool quite quickly.  This method means most of the glu residue goes with the wrap, peeling or cutting them off cold will leave a load of glue to remove.  Any glue left is best removed using glue/tar remover (petrol like substances).  Always read the label, and don't burn yourself on that vase of hot water! Any source of heat (hairdryer, heat gun) will also work, if using a heat gun dont have it too hot or youll melt things...

6) Do you ship to *insert country name*?

Yes - we ship worldwide, the shop will show you shipping options before you check out.  We've tried to provide a selection from budget to premium for you to choose from.  Shipping times vary on time of the year and the country they are going to, France, Germany etc tend to be under a week.

7) How quickly can i have my order?

For wraps and things, obviously we have to make them - we don't have a set on the shelf in your unique deisgn with your name on, in your size... but we do try to get orders out as quickly as possible, meaning wihtin 24 hours of ordering normally.  If theres a delay, we will let you know (we occationally get caught short on materials etc).  First class post in the UK is next day 90% of the time (xmas you'll see it stretch to about 5 days!).  Special Delivery is guarenteed next day - Next day being the day after they are posted, not necessarily the day after you order.  We will prioritise Special delivery orders, but it takes us time to manufacture things and there are post cut off times - your item may be posted next day, to be received the day after.  If you're in a hurry - contact us and we'll do our best to accomodate you and get your order made ASAP.

8) Is your shop safe? Is payment secure?

In short, YES! We take security very seriously, we keep the shop software up-to-date and operate SSL security (the green padlock in the address bar) so any personal info is encrypted before it is sent.  Payment is safe however you choose to pay - non of the available payment methods involve us seeing your payment details, no card number etc are ever seen or stored by us, its all dealt with by the payment companies.  Wether you choose PayPal, Sage (Card) or Amazon payment, your details and money will be safe.  Any data you provide us with is required to fulfill your order, such as your name and address, all of this data is securly stored and never shown, given or sent to anyone else unless required to fulfill your order - we have to send your details to Reign for example if you order a string.

9) How do i get on your Pro Staff?

Send us an email... we get a lot, so please don't get upset if we don't reply - we will read it!  We currently have a lot of Pro Staff so aren't looking to take any more on until such time as weve worked out a better system that works for everyone involved.

10) What glue should i use for fletching with wraps?

(The wraps are self adhesive - this is for applying your fletchings to the wraps)

Fletching glue... sounds daft but they are specifically formulated for the job.  We've seen customers have issues with "Normal Superglue" for instance, fletchings fell off.  Stick with pretty much any fletching glue, we favor AAE Fast set due to its ease of applicaiton and fast setting'ness.  If your using AAE WAV vanes - you MUST use AAE MAX BOND glue - it's the only thing that will stick them due to a substance on the base of the vane. Be careful not to overdo the glue - most tend to be solvet based which will react with the ink in the wraps so wiping away large volumes of squeezed out glue may result in some odd colours on yoru wraps - use enough, not too much!

11) How do i know what size wraps i need? 

On our adverts, there's normally a "Size" drop down box for you to choose.  We have on file, nearly all main stream shaft sizes - so it is always best if you can to simply give us the make, model and spine of your arrows.  E.g. Easton, ACC, 3-04.  We can then work out the exact size you need and you can select the CUSTOM option in size.  There will be a text box below it for you to enter the details into.

If you're one of the few who have obscure arrows we don't have on file  - or you simply want to measure them anyway - please see the graphic below which give you a couple of methods.  Method 1 is the most un-scientific but will work, Method 2 is best if you have access to Vernier Claipers.

 

Why do we need an accurate size? The reasons are two fold:

       1) We take pride in our work and want the wraps to fit your arrows perfectly, not have huge overlaps or risk a gap. The wraps will naturally shrink over time - hence the 2mm overlap we include to counter this.
       2) If you would like spin wing lines on your wraps - we need to know how to space them, without knowing the diameter of your arrow, we cannot do this accuratly.

 

Barrelled shafts - Easton X10 for instance is fatter in the middle than the front and back, Protours, ACE etc are fatter at the nock end - when measuring and especially on these shafts - measure at the nock end, not the middle.

Still unsure? - Pop us a message through one of our contact forms and we'll happily help you.
