    Default Adding weight to already built Easton Axis Arrows

    I've got ten 340 spine of these all ready built and want to add 25 grains to the front of the arrow without changing broadhead weight, any ideas?

    Might be able to thread the GT weights into the back of your insert. Pretty much the only way you'll be able to do it that I'm aware of to add just to the front of the arrow.

    I also shoot Easton Axis 340 or Beamen MFX 340 (same arrow), why do you want to add 25g to the tip when you can buy the broadhead at 125g . Just wondering unless you want more that 125g. Woodsmen Elite has heads that weight's are up to 175g.

    I'm not sure what exactly you want to do, but the only thing i can think of is to pull the nock and insert some weight inside the shaft. May be a lead pellet covered with something will do the job

    A few compnay make weighted insert, not sure for the Easton Axis, may have to change insets if you can get them out. I do shhot BAR 5's with may Axis that will add only 3g.

    Changing broadhead or field point weight would be the easiest way to add tip weight, although you could browse the Lancaster catalog, I have seen heavy inserts in their catalog, but don't remember the exact weight of them.
