Easton ST Axis arrows

Postby adaye » Wed May 06, 2009 8:09 am

Anyone have any problems getting the Easton ST Axis arrows to spin a broadhead well. I've used GT's for years and didn't have many problems with getting them to spin tune with broadheads. If I did have one that wouldn't spin well I just shaved down the end of the insert and that would take care of the issue.

With the enternal or hidden insert that is not a option. Wright now half of the easton's I have don't spin worth a damm. I have sanded the cut ends of the shaft to make sure that is not the problem and I have tested the same broadheads in my old Gold Tips to make sure its not the broadhead thats bent. But still they spin like crap....

The next step I plan to take is screw in a old broadhead and heat up the broadhead so that hopefully the glue around the insert will soften. And then try to turn the broadhead inside the shaft until it spins without any wooble.

Has anyone experienced this problem?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I shoot the Full Metal Jackets (or at least I did) but I don't recall having much issue... Sounds to me like the inserts are set right... Heating them up and spinning the insert would probably resolve the issue...

I do remember someone saying they were a little tricky to get set right, but I never intalled the inserts... I always let the Pros handle that...

I've never had a problem with mine. You can either heat up the insert and spin them then or get some Blazer vanes to outfit your broadheads. My Muzzys now shoot the same as field tips. No adjustment needed.

I think I will try heating the insert up, I'm shooting blazers now.

I haven't even tried shooting the shafts that are affected yet because they wouldn't even spin straight on my spin turner. Figured no reason to because if they spin as bad as they do, they sure won't shoot worth anything.

I'll try out the heating thing, it will be my first time trying to heat up an insert on a carbon shaft. Only done it on aluminum.

I'll post the results. If not good, I may go back to GT's.

Adaye,

If I had to spend that much time getting an arrow to spin properly I think I'd switch arrows. At some point your throwing good time after bad just to make something work. :angry:

I've used the Easton Carbon Raider for a while and never had problems with it. Currently I'm using the Carbon Express Mayhem Hunter and enjoy them very much. :getoff:
Be Safe,
