Arrowsocks, Wraps and Easton Pin Nocks

I now have my hands on some second hand Easton ACE 520 arrows and I have decided to put wraps on these and add Easton pin nocks and small pin nocks as well as XS Wings.

This is the first time I have really built the arrows myself, usually I buy them ready made with standard straight vanes on them.
I have used Arrowsocks before for their mini wraps which I put on my arrows to show my name and the arrow number. As the service is so good I decided to use them again for the 120mm wraps, extra coloured adhesive tape and some silver XS Wings.

Arrowsocks Customer Service

As I am left handed I needed left hand XS Wings, silver was out of stock for a while but I only had to wait 2 weeks for new stock. In the XS Wings packet you get lots of adhesive strip, black adhesive tape and 50 wings. Anyway going back to the wraps I ordered the hexagon design in glitter silver (this is one colour throughout and does not fade between colours like the other ones). They were sent out the same day as I ordered them. There were a couple of printing errors on two of the wraps, but Arrowsocks sent me a whole new set a few days later – brilliant customer service.

Adding the arrow wraps

I removed the old vanes from the ACE arrows with a razor blade and then cleaned them with pure alcohol. I then used a green art and craft cutting board with a grid on it to help me align the wraps onto my arrows. This was all straight forward.

Adding the Easton nock pins

I then added my Easton nock pins with hot melt and then when cooled I pushed on my ‘crystal’ coloured nock pins, I got these from Aim4Sport.

The arrows were then sent to Aim4Sport for cutting and are now ready for the wings to be added.

    Those wraps are so sick! I love the idea of custom arrow wraps and customizing my bow parts. I wasn’t sure what company to turn to but I’ll probably give arrowsocks a try. I am currently addicted to customizing my bow because I got custom strings from http://www.prolinebowstrings.com that jsut arrived yesterday and they are so cool. Thanks for the awesome referral!
