Default Inserts Glue for our Arrows

Who makes the Best Glue? I purchase Insert Iron at Bass Pro! Anyone know if this is a Good Glue or not?

I still like hot melt glue.

It holds well and I can always pull the insert if I need to.

I agree with Gator. I like hot melt the best. Although, I have had points pull out using all types of glue. I just chalk it up to operator error

I live in Michigan.....what do you think.

If you don't clean the inside of the arrow first you might loose one but I ve never had a problem and I ve shot 3d rounds in a blizzard where we had to wait for a break in the snow cause we couldn't see the white goat to make a shot.

If you know what your doing hotmelt points aren't going to pull before anything else will. The last time I lost a point with hotmelt....never.

I remember shooting a FITA match a few years ago, those matts are the worst. Everyone that was shooting was loosing points but me and two of my buddies that also use hotmelt.

I agree with BH. I use to use epoxy and would have some inserts to pull out. I switched to low temp hot melt and never have inserts to pull out.

Where can you buy Low Temp Hot Melt at? I have access to Cabelas and Bass Pro. I dont remember seeing Hot Melt at Bass Pro though. Or is there some online place to get a good deal at?
