I've never encountered any maple that didn’t have enough tannin in it to give up the color.  I have not played much with variations in the amount of crystals but so far it seems that the reaction is more based on the wood than the formula.  But like I said, not much experimenting.

It's also a good choice for plain grain maple if you're just after a pleasing brown reddish finish.  It’s fast and easy with no fuss or mess.

I wipe a very thin film of vaseline on the clamp every few feathers. Helps to keep extra glue from sticking to the quill.

I thought I'd foind a favorite.  Carbon Express Piledrivers.  Then as suddenly as they appeared, they disappeared.
I use several different brands and all seem to kill if I do my part.  German Jager, Grizzlystik, Steel Force.
I haven't found a favorite I guess.  I'll keep looking for a reasonably priced, quality head that is of solid build and quality.

I was fortunate to bring home 3 deer from up there.  Freezer is well stocked.  I wish you luck on another buck.

What he said is true, but only in the context of intent. If you don't want super dark, you lower the concentration of tannin. You can also lower the concentration of nitrate for less color.
As with any finish that is new to the finisher, it's prudent to to do a sample board that shows every step of the finishing process. Then you know exactly what to expect and how to get it.

The glow sticks that you snap and shake work really well too.
