The sad part is I could have done it myself. There were directions on the back of the bag they came in which included the tool to push them in. I took them there because I don't have a cutting device and figured he might as well do the inserts since he surely would do better than I could.

I hate it because I like the guy, and I know he'll try to make it right, but I have a feeling he is going to have to buy a new set. The carbon layer on these arrows isn't even quite a mm thick.. I bet every single one of them will crack. I'll let him try, but if he breaks one I'll make him buy a new set, and let him cut these down and sell them (they're 29" so he has room to work with)

He may have done them according to the back of the directions but then propped them up point down....and that is a HUGE no-no with HIT inserts. They'll slide down the inside of the shaft and there you go...what you have here. I agree with you Master Chief, the directions are pretty self explanatory. When I put them in for people here at the shop I use the Quick HIT black epoxy from Easton. Works great but stuff sure is messy lol

I shoot the axis st with h i t. If the arrows were mine they would be replacing them. Be very careful with that carbon. I was changing broadheads the other day and heard a small pop, that shaft went to the trash. Carbon is very dangerous when broke.


X2 Heating carbon is also like playing Russian roulette.

Have you had problems out of em at the shop before? Now I ain't got a dog in the race, but if you been using the same place for other jobs and this is the first mess up might think on it before busting down the doors and demanding things. Everybody has bad days and even the best one out there messes up from time to time.

No, and that's why, despite others advising otherwise, I gave him a chance to fix them. I picked them up today flawless.

Thanks for the advice TNdeerguy.. he did the flinging the drill bit method. Also gave me some field points for free.
