Title: Water proofing feathers
Post by: Littlefeather on May 11, 2004, 02:10:00 PM
"No-Snow" is hands down the finest stuff on the market for weather proofing feathers. No mixing, no powders. Just use the easy to apply, aresol spray. Its a little more pricy than other products but well worth the money. Curtis

Curtis, I have been using this stuff for over a year now. It was primarily used to waterproof the Whisker Bisqiut arrow rest but its the best I've seen for feathers.
Mark, I order it directly from the Mfg for my shop but you can get it through 3 Rivers.

Dang gone it i wasn't done yet!!!
I'll be at Cloverdale and Compton at the Morrison Archery booth so swing by for a demo and as a side note I'm currenty working on a better formula that is being tested now.

So on that note any orders received between now and the new formula being released, you will get the new formula sent to you as well at no additional cost to you. Kinda like a free upgrade.

FYI The improvements hopefully it dry much faster.

thanks

Greg

I've used the no-sno and it does work good with one drawback: My feathers don't seem to be as durable as before.  Meaning, if they seperate, you can't get them to go back together and you end up with a bunch of seperated filaments.  Also, nothing seems to work if you walk through wet brush or grass and it rubs against the feathers.

Greg, I think highly of Bob M. and he says your stuff is the best.  Tell me, does your treatment have the same effect on the individual filaments of the feathers?

Joe,
Sometimes what happens to mine if I use do much and don't allow it time to "cure". There might be one or two breaks (seperations) in the feather though, and they still seem to fly good.

That is one of the reasons why I'm still tweaking the formula. Most of the faults I find is with how the spray is applied. Since this is a pump spray and not a aerosol, its easy to spray to much and ya need to let the feathers "cure" more or wipe off the excess if ya need to hurry.

I used Greg's (Arrow-Shield) spray on my black/grizzly hunt in BC a couple weeks ago and it works great.  Had tons of rain and the feathers were fine.  Make sure to follow the directions!  You will want the feathers to cure at least 3-5 days before using (because of the smell, but the smell goes away).  Fine product by a great guy.  Good hunting.
