    I've been shooting them in my gold tips for a while and they don't fit all of the time. At the top of the threads most of them have a little burr that keeps them from screwing in all the way and if you do get them in it takes a pair of channel locks to get them out. I suggest not to buy them.

    That's a honest review.:lol:

    Ever think about doing bow reviews?
     
  7. Are you referring to the Satelite Slik Tips?

    I shot them for MANY years with no troubles - actuallt before NIBS, they are my preferred field point. I never had a problem with them in my Gold Tips.

    Have you contacted the company to talk about your problem?

  10. satelite

    I quit using satelite products years ago because their inserts had too broad tolerances. One would fit snug in a shaft and the next one would have a lot of clearence. All with the same shaft. The old satelite broadheads (145gr) would never fly consistancely and they were very hard to get to line up with the shaft.
     

  11. NO...not specifically, Thats why I asked....

    yeah they are the silk tips. And I have to keep using some of them because they are stuck in the insert :frusty:
