Got some Ultralight 22s in the mail yesterday and I forgot to tell the guy to glue the inserts in. Whats the best glue for doing that?
I've got Gorrilla glue, Super glue and Platinum glue.

I like goat tuff but most types of super glue will work, even epoxy. Just don't use hot melt.

i use the same super glue gel i use on my vanes. they don't come out. some folks have pointed at that the super glue makes the tips brittle when wedged into something other than a target bale (wood!!) which is fair comment. but i find the super glue has the right viscosity to avoid unnecessary waste and buildup. inserts are a tight fit anyway and with other glues it's difficult to avoid applying more than you need.

Thanks for the replies. I have some super glue that should work. I will use it sparingly and I imagine it will work fine. I appreciate the info!

Epoxy

24 Hr epoxy and not the 5 min stuff (5 min stuff is too brittle). Epoxy by far, provides the best bond. Other stuff may do the job depending on what you are shooting into.
