the tips can certainly be a problem but what i find more of an issue is when the target melts and fuses to your dry shaft. it doesn't happen all the time but you know it when it does. hard to get it moving and then you're left with a rough shaft from all the foreign matter stuck to it.

APD... That is why I carry a folding razor knife in my pocket. I can easily scrape off the "residue" with it.

Taxidermist... never though about KY. Might work, but then so might Vaseline. For sure I have been told Dipity-Do does not work.

i usually just lube it up and shoot again to remove it. i'm always paranoid about digging into the carbon accidentally and getting an arrow through the hand on the next shot.

Thanks to everyone for your input. Followup... I ended up purchasing 15 bottles of lube to give out at the campout. I purchased Arrow Snot and Woody's. I've never used Arrow Snot so I am anxious to see how well it works compared to Woody's.

FYI... Follow up of the followup. I have been using the "Arrow Snot" the last two weeks in the Wednesday Night 3-d league I have been shooting in at Timp Archers. Here is my observations. The lube stays on the arrow for multiple shots, same as the Woody's. It is about $5 a bottle cheeper ($10 vrs $15) and you get more lube in the container. I would recommend this arrow lube and rate it as a winner. Both are superior to anything I have ever used, including a bar of soap. My last bottle of Woody's has lasted well over 2 years. You only need coat the first 6 inches of the arrow shaft.
