    tried a bunch of stuff. my most recent test was the bohning cool blue stick. only lost three nibs at Paris. i cut the shafts, wash them with soapy water, let them dry then clean the nib end with either 91% alky or acetone. heat the nib till the glue melts onto the nib. they still come out.

    i've tried 5 min. expoy following the same procedure. i've tried some older easton glue stick that i've had since Noah was a pup. same results with both. beginning to think the problem is with either the x ringer shafts or the nibs. i've used both victory points and PDP points.

    i think the archery gods are displeased with me.

    Goat Tuff glue. (Super glue) Use it on inserts and vanes both. Seems to bond really well with carbon. Holds everything in tight, and easy to remove if I need to. Just apply heat, and it'll break the bond.

    I take a round steel file and scratch up the inside of the arrow shaft, and other than an insert or two coming out(very rare), the combination of that method and 5 min. epoxy really works well.

    Goat Tough and Tip Grip both work great (inserts and vanes)

    here's an update...went out to shoot this p.m. and lost three more nibs out of my xringers. tried some lightspeeds i used the blue glue on and had no problems. i'm thinking it has to do with size of the nibs and the I.D. of the victorys.
