Hot Melt is NOT recommended for use with Black Eagle Arrow shafts.I just saw on Black Eagle site they have a new shaft called the intrepid. It's a micro. Looks similar specs to the avalon. 500 spines (stiffest available) is 8.3 gpi. 32 inch max. a little bigger OD than some higher end. Got to buy 5 doz from BE but looks like Lancaster is getting them... Might be worth looking at. I'm thinking I'm getting some for my kid and checking them out. Just FYI since they are similar to these and pretty cheap. .006 straightness though if that's too much for you. Forgot that little tidbit.
I've used superglue ... and then had to heat them out anyway. Mixed results. Some came out ok but some did damage to the arrow. Probably more heat that hot melt takes. I just tried an insert w hotmelt. I'll see if I can tell anything. Not on that particular shaft but on a BE shaft. I don't know if it's just that some people get carried away w the heat and BE just doesn't want to deal with that issue or if there is something to it.Hot Melt is NOT recommended for use with Black Eagle Arrow shafts.
What does that mean? What are you supposed to glue with? superglue?
