I use Devcon 2 part epoxy. I have never had any problems, and you can get it at just about any store. The only drawback is once glued, you can't get the insert out if needed. I also use a arrow prep tool to rough up the inside of the shaft before gluing. Another good thing is that Devcon is pretty cheap. Tony
It doesn't dry fast enough and it probably wouldn't hold if did harden. I had some arrows cut at the local "pro" shop and they used the Platnium stuff. It says on the label for gluing fletching. Needless to say, it didn't work. Use an epoxy like Goat Tuff, or Gorilla Glue. Elmers makes a good one too - can't remember the names - has the bull on the label.
Fletch tite is for fletchings not inserts. If you are gluing inserts into carbon shafts go with goat tuff or something like it. If you are using aluminum shafts the hot melt glue is still about the best, aside from epoxy.
Like someone else mentioned...I go to the craft section at wal mart and get like 20 glue sticks for like 2 bucks and have used that for years. Shoot a LOT of 3-D and don't have any nibbs come out. I do use the High Temp variety....Only bad thing I have found out about Super Glue is that it's TOO good. If I mess up an arrow I want to save the nibb and you just about can't get a nibb out that has been super glued in. I don't know about Goat Tuff...but I think it's pretty good too.
