Default New target arrow building concept for 2013

Before I tell you all the great benefits this system I come up with; any one want to make a guess what are benefits and downside of using this system like this comparing to the traditional glue in points?

would be a + for me, but since I already use carbon and they have the internal insert and screw in points same with alum... you must be making this for wood only and there it may be a + if you use 125 gr points and only that size... a lot of the trad archers like very heavy points so you would have to carry from 100, 125, 145, and even maybe up to 175 gr point...

Unless your changing the weight of your tips all the time I can't see a whole lot of advantage.

they would come in handy if your shooting a class that requires screw in tips.

Talking A little known fact !

My points are " ALL SCREW IN " !

I use to have glued nocks ( found at the other end of the arrow , down by the vanes ) , along time ago !

Just ask as you will get an answer here !

It appears to me that one size insert fits two shaft diameters. If that is the case, the small dia arrow could be a pain to pull under some situations and possibly have inserts pull out.

On the other hand and if either of those conditions exist, I'm sure you will come up with something else to sell that may remedy any issue.

The insert is a hybrid system, you first glue the thinner shaft to the thinner shoulder first, then the entire unit insert and carbon tube together got glue into the bigger shaft. So now you have created an insert that is as long as you wanted and both carbon tube are have the same anchor on the insert.

Ok, so what is the advantage over normal glue in target tips?

Or are you saying the advantage is just over regular inserts and screw in tips?

Sorry but I see absolutely no point to this system or benefits to it only more expense and time building arrows.

Now that (I think) I understand the concept, a benefit would be more control over FOC, but on the other hand, getting the arrow spine set-up correctly could be a hand full.
