put a deep sause pan on the stove and fill with water and bring to boil...dip arrow into hot water for 10-20 seconds, start peeling wrap..will need to repeat to keep glue soft, do not hold arrow in water to long as high heat can effect your carbon arrow shafts.
a sharp thin knife or a curved fletching remover helps..just don't cut into the shaft.
once it is off, use some ajax or comet and a scrubby sponge to clean up the glue
wipe clean and dry
you are ready to re wrap and fletch.

Warping and deformation of isophthalic resins starts to occur at 140F. Water boils at 212F so the trick is don't allow the shafts to get too hot.
In industry, adhesive vinyls are mostly removed with a heat gun and a scraper.

I sometimes skip the hot water part and go right to the peeling part with a Norway fletching scraper tool and or a dull bladed box type knife. Depending on how much glue is on it after the vinyl wrap is off I might continue with the blade scraping it or take a rough scubbing sponge to remove the rest.
Thats it..Norway Zip Strip.Keystone has them.
Strip it down and then hit with a Scotch Brite pad.
Then clean with acetone.Simple fast and very effective.
