arrow left outside over a year, fletch tape still strong

well while shooting in the back yard today I found a long lost arrow while searching for a more recently lost arrow :lol: :lol:

the interesting this is this arrow has been in the elements for over a year, 100 plus degrees and minus 10 days with rain and snow mixed in, the fletch tape is still rock solid. trying to get pictures up but my phone is having trouble getting internet.

Sounds like a good review for fletch tape.

Wow
Nothing clears a troubled mind like shooting a bow.

Good to know. Bohning is what I've used to date. Never had one come loose yet.
