    Non-fading permanent marker anyone? :)

    If you sand the gloss off arrows and use a sharpie or any other permanent market it will not fade, and in fact unless you sand gloss off arrow it will pretty much always fade no matter what you use...

    Thought of a new curriculum

    Leaning in Sidemount?
