  • Glue for Gold Tip Inserts?

    Just curious what you Gold Tip users are using to hold your inserts in? I've had a number of them come out on me and looking for something hopefully a bit more permanent. Thanks in advance.

    I use hot glue

    A lot of people use Goat Tuff or Gorilla as well. Before you glue them in i would recommend cleaning the inside of the arrow with denatured alcohol (91%) or Acetone (98%). Nothing will oils in it. Also, i like to scuff up the inside of the arrow after cleaning with bore cleaner brush. Then, get out the glue gun, put a dab of melted glue in there put the insert in.

    Good Luck,

      I use the same prep process that Jeffin Ak described, then i use the gold tip glue. I was told it was the same stuff as goat tuff, just in a different package.

        Thanks guys. I assume "Goat Tuff" is something I can pick up at Fred's or Wally World?

          J i have found a good two part epoxy to work the best. and when building B/H it allows you a few moments to spin the B/H to match your fletches. i have not had a single one come loose since i started that.

            No, its glue that is made for fletching arrows. You need to go to an archery supply store to pick some up.

              Thanks Vince. I was thinking of using a 2 part epoxy. I get some stuff that has a strength of something like 2500 psi that I use on reel seats for rod building, and I've never had one come loose.

                Goat tuff has always worked for me.

                  i use this process with gorilla glue and it works great, i do not do the glue gun part but otherwise pretty much exact. i use a rifle bore brush to score up the inside of the arrow shaft

                    It's not so much the glue as the prep. A poorly prepared shaft won't hold a insert no matter what glue is used. Fltech tight, Duco, Goat tuff and 2 part epoxy will all work great if you do the prep work.

                    For some reason gold tips seem to be particularly finicky about being properly prepared.
