    I have lost several outserts and tips (broad heads too) in my rhinehard... anyone else have this problem with these? Have you fixed the problem?

    Thanks, T

    I have had certain problems with them. Make sure to get practice points that match the width of your arrow. I found that to be the cause of my problems.

    In most cases it's not so much the glue as it is the prep of the arrow and insert. I always wipe them both down with Acetone before gluing and it's greatly minimized my issues. I also use a slow set (24 hour) 2 part epoxy instead of the super glues or fast set epoxies that a lot of guys use. Yes, you have to wait a little while to shoot your new arrows, but it's worth not losing inserts inside your target.

    Thanks everyone... I think the issue I have is a function of several problems... insufficient cleaning/prep., and poor glue. i will change glue and get some acetone.
    I like the arrows so I hope this helps....
