    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.

    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

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,

    Goat tuff has always worked for me.

    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.

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

    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.

    started a topic Glue for Gold Tip Inserts?

    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.
