    I can turn a piece of billet aluminum to .246" on a metal lathe and insert it between the the parts. You are right, epoxy may be better than Gorilla glue. I just hope it doesn't throw the FOC off too much.

    No offence but, i don't think that would be a really good idea. Also i think it will throw other stuff off as well. I would just put some 125 grain field tips on the arrows you have and see if that helps.

    X2 Just put some 125gr points on for now and shoot them, when ready for some new arrows just make sure they are cut to the correct length so they spine out good.

    I would hope it's just for fun at this point. I kinda like the idea of the piece of aluminum billet though. It could dramatically increase the FOC, almost like Carbon Expresss with their weight forward technology. Of course that piece of billet isn't going to bend much so isn't going to help with any spine issue.

    I know years ago when aluminum was the norm if we needed to add 1/4" to 1/2" to our shaft length (arrow shaft, fellows) we would cut that much from a trashed shaft and slide it down over the shank of our glue-in target points and then hot melt the point into the arrow.

    NAH, I ain't doin that with carbon.

    Default Am I Over Spined?

    I figure that cutting a arrow twice and it still being too short has got to go.

    Working on plans for a variable length arrow. I'm going to make millions

    Okay guys, the bit about spicing them back together was just a joke. Really! That is why the funny face was there. I even sent Barry a PM that said I was fishing but no one was biting. Okay, a few bit!!!

    So y'all can go back to thinking I'm just dumb, not an idiot.

    Sonny, no matter how many times I cut this arrow it is still too short!

    Nope, I was really just trying to get a reaction. I'll be honest though, I'm disappointed because I was trying to get Hutch and Arrow Splitter on this. I figured AS might blow a gasket. LOL That is why I waited so long. I guess they are too busy having fun in Oklahoma.
