    Easton ACE Arrow primer

    Is there a carbon arrow shaft primer that will improve the adhesion of spinwing vane adhesive tape?

    ? I don't have any problem. It is Spinwings brand, rather than Kurleys or Elivanes?

    Just wipe them down with alcohol or acetone; takes a fair amount of surface crap off.

    I used to use kitchen scourer cream (non-bleach variety). Rinse and let dry.
    And apply tape to the vanes rather than the shaft. And top'n'tail...

    Just a note that nail varnish remover, whilst mostly (usually) acetone, can contain oils which are probably good for nails but not great for adhesion

    DON'T buy nail varnish remover. You can buy a litre of acetone or isopropyl alcohol off of Amazon for about a tenner. Either would easily be enough for, say 1,000 arrows ��
