    Hard to beat the low temp hot melt glue for tips and inserts.

    I clean the inside of the shaft first and don't think I ve lost one yet.

    any super glue gel type works great. it just usually ruins the shaft if you try to remove inserts or glue in tips.
    i have been using hot melt glue by heating the glue more than the insert and have not had problems doing so and if i need to change components i can.

    i can't remember but there is a loctite product that people use also, it looked black to me.

    jt this is from bohning- it says heat reversible so yes it will allow you to remove inserts and other components without messing your arrows up

    Low-temp hot melt for carbon shafts! Instant full strength set-up in cold water! The newest addition to the Bohning insert adhesive line. A super strong, low melt temp. adhesive specifically formulated for carbon arrows. Easy to apply. Heat reversible. 12 gram stick will do approximately 144 inserts.

    Or you can go to Wally World and get a LIFETIME Supply for about the same price.

    This is what I use....I bought this bag about 5 years ago or so for about $5-7..... 24 sticks that are 10" X .44". I have 18 full sticks left and I have given 2-3 away and chucked a couple away cleaning up and broken some down to keep in my quiver and lost those.

    How much glue do you really think you can fit between the wall of the shaft and the insert? Correct answer is not much. Even if it is "heavier" then other glue...1-2 grains of "extra" glue weight vs another glue or even if it was 5 grains heavier (which it isn't) it isn't going to slow your arrow down...

    Yes can remove the insert or point using the glue.
