Have used the quick fletches they work ok
they are good for an emergency fletch job but don't seem to last with repeated shooting
I hold an 1/8" -1/4" off the end of the shaft
Important to make sure you prep your arrow shaft well get rid of all glue
do not recommend sandpaper I usually scrape it off with a knife then use a light steel wool then rubbing alcohol
