I gave up on this stuff, just won't hold the vanes on my shafts. Two shots max before the vanes fly off.

I’ll have to look when I get home because I can’t remember the name of it, but I’ve had great results with it.

That’s the same problem I ran into my last batch I did. I’ve had really good results with black eagles glue but my bottle dried up. Just looking for something that I won’t have to order.

Flexfletch flex bond has been my go to glue for over 20 years. That stuff is great. I have never had one problem with it.

I've had great results with Saunders NPV Arrowmate.
One thing I've always done is I store my glues in the fridge.
They seem to last longer.

That's what I've been told.  Currently using AAE max bond and their primer pen only because I ordered some vanes from them. 

Gorilla glue superglue also seems to get decent reviews.

From what I've read prepping vane and shaft with a primer pen makes the most difference.

Flexfletch Flexbond, but make sure you prep your shafts good by wiping down with alcohol.  Used Acetone for years until I was told you absorb it thru your skin. Never had a fletch come off when shooting.

Interesting.  I've never had a problem with this stuff.  I clean all my feathers/vanes with denatured alcohol before applying the glue.  I have shot thousands of arrows, never once had a vane or feather fall off.  Never thought of using super glue, must be able to fletch an entire arrow in minutes.
