I dont see why not, I've put them in with super glue before you just have to be quick.

There must be a reason for Easton wanting you to use epoxy instead of hot glue, they send the epoxy with the arrows.

I used hot glue on some of my girlfriend's axis arrows and never had a problem with them, they all worked great and none pulled out or had any negative effects from what I could see.

hot melt will work, been doing it for years,,,, just make sure the inside of the shaft is clean... i usually screw a field tip into the insert, then coat the shoulder of the tip with string wax, push them in, the wax keeps the glue from sticking to the tip which can then been removed with ease....so the depth is set and the tip is ready all at one time
