      Season starts tomorrow and I took my broadheads out for one last check of my whole set up and I lost my first broadhead in the hay bail. Well I guess its not really lost since I know its in the bail. Anyways I use 100gr inserts glued into 100gr zwicky’s. The temp here has dropped about 30 degrees since I glued them. I used ferrel-tite. The rest of my arrows seem fine but I’m curious about what glues you all use in cold weather.

      Ferrel-tite should have done the job. You didn’t by chance cool them in water after installing did you? The only other thing I could think of that would cause the problem is getting the glue too hot and pushing out too much and leaving leaving enough to make the bond.

      I have found that oil messes up the bond too. Broadheads are usually coated in machining oil when purchased. This oil needs to be removed before glueing…

      I’ve been using hot glue and it’s pretty rare when a head pulls off an adapter. I do swab both parts with alcohol and dry them a little over the alcohol flame first.

      The oil never crossed my mind, thanks guys.
