    Default squaring device

    Hey all,
    Hope everyone is doing well.
    Time to start thinking archery season again. Starts really early in South Florida.
    I want to get an ASD. (Arrow squaring device).
    Could a few of you share the pro's and cons of both the G5 A.S.D. and the Lumenok Fletched Arrow Squaring Tool. Both seem reasonably priced. One does both aluminum and carbon. The other just carbon.
    I use carbon but think that checking inserts can't be a bad thing. Hence the one that does Aluminum.
    Thanks in advance.

    Nothing against either one, but I use my table saw fence and crosscut guide. If you can make a t-square you can make your own squaring devise.
    My hunting bud loves his G5.

    We square every shaft we cut with the ASD. This is just an added thing we do for our customers. And yes, I have a very expensive saw that cuts them very straight.

    This may sound real stupid to lots of you but why go to all that trouble with another tool.

    After cutting I just put a pieve of fine sand paper of a work table and the run the arrow shaft face down on the sand paper to make sure the edge of the cut is all the same ....

    I suppose that would work if you were sure your holding that arrow at 90 degrees.

    I use the G5 and like it. For $8-$12 an arrow I hate to fling one off some where because I didn't check every possible thing. It is only a one time investment anyway.

    I like that thought. Last yr I had a less than stellar shot on a doe. I now want to check everything also.
