I just use the loc tite super glue on both ends and always pin the tips on.Don't waste your money on epoxy.If you break a nock just take a lighter to it and the glue will release the broken nock and you can just glue on a new one.Takes a total of a couple minutes to fix your nock.

I can't remember... There isn't a label on the tubes.... I think it was either Permatex or Devcon... Looks something like this..

No epoxy here, just the loc tite gel super glue and the occasional pin in the point. But thats what I love about Cajun's complete arrows, the points are crimped on, so you dont have to worry about them coming off....

i use 2 part maximum strength epoxy sets in 30 min cures in 2 hours, knock i use super glue take less than 2 minutes to set and and if you break a knock take a file to it add more super glue and a new knock and you back stickin fish is less than 5 minutes... although back up arrows can be replaced faster than a knock

Goat Tuff point and nock...then crimp the points.

I quit pinning them years ago...felt like the process of pinning (drilling hole and hammering in the pin) actually weakened the shaft.Many a time I would real up a divoted, shattered nub of fiberglass and you could see where the pin "used" to be.

As always...JMO

I have seen it myself too, the only ones I have ever pinned were on those old shafts that had the brass end on it that was predrilled for a pin.

I think just glue ends up being stronger than glue and drill/pin, but crimping is the best...

what do you use to crimp them? I have been looking for something to crimp them with for a while now but dont really know what I am looking for? LOL
