  • Q:

    For same total weight, would a heavy steel adapter and light broad head or light aluminum adapter and heavier broad head be better. Seems the heavier broad head might not damage as easy. Would like some input.

      A:

      The stronger combination will be a lighter broadhead with a steel adaptor. The aluminum adaptors are generally the fail point in glue on broadheads.

      A:

      It's a difficult question to answer with several variables that could be debated such as the type of broadhead, weight, etc. I would tend to agree with the heavier broadhead for the same reason you stated. However, I would prefer to use a steel adapter with a broadhead as I think the combination would be the most durable. That being said, they have used the aluminum adapters for a long time with great success. It's a good question, but very subjective.

      I have used the aluminum adapters on carbon shafts and found them too light. I would go with the steel adapters next time. I am using the Zwickey Delta 135gr and have had very good results.

      A:

      I use 75 grain steel adapters and 125 grain Wensel Woodsman and get great
      performance. I would suspect the steel adapters have a bit more strength
      than aluminum, but for impact I think the more beef in the broadhead (for a
      given broadhead design), the better. The 75-125 combo balances the
      decision well for me, giving good forward total tip weight also.

      I try to stay away from aluminum as much as possible.

      A:

      I've thought of this myself. I pick the broadhead I want to use and then
      see what adapter I need to give me the weight I want.

      A:

      The arrow set up is only as strong as the weakest part.  I don't like aluminum adapters since the bend easily, so I could be considered biased.  A steel adapter and a good 125gn broadhead like zwickey or woodsman will hold up to more than the carbon arrow will.

      A:

      Personally, I feel like the insert to adapter junction accounts for a lot
      of my head failures. I'd go with steel adapter, along with a steel or
      brass insert, regardless of head weight.... and an external footing, just
      to be safe! That said, it all depends on intended use. I build up one
      arrow/ broad head for everything from stumps to elk. I'm a big fan of the
      ultra high FOC concept.

      Yes, these are long inserts. All of them will fill the holes from the bleeder blades.

      In answer to your question, I feel the 75 is better. Hope that helps.

      A:

      Hi John,
      Yes! That steel insert will work great with any Zwickey model. I preffer 100 grains becouse it is longer than 75 grins and it will glue tight. The total broadhead weight will be arround 225 after sharpening. Probably you will need a 300 spine shaft for a good FOC.
      Good hunt!!!

      A:

      Yes they do, I used gorilla glue, the white expanding kind very sparingly and i used 75 grain for turkeys, but id use the 100's for the extra punch for bigger game.

      A:

      Yes, these will work with the Eskimos. The weight that you need will depend on how your arrows are tuned.

    Are these adapters usable with narrow diameter beman mix shafts?

      A:

      They will screw into the Beman MFX Classic shafting using the HIT inserts. They will be wider than the shafting though for the adapter part.

  • Q:

    Just purchased STOS broadheads. I'm currently using Carbon Heritage 150 shafts with 5/16 brass inserts. Are those steel screw in broadhead adapters compatible to my setup?
    Asked on 6/27/2011 by Rookie

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, you will be able to use these adapters to make the broadheads screw in and to increase their weight.

      Answered on 6/28/2011 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      Not only will they screw in and add weight, they will be larger than your 5/16 shaft, which will have some small favorable impact on penetration. The STOS is a fine head, I've killed two bull elk with them.

  • Q:

    It says it's a screw-in adapter. Does that mean that it let's me mount screw on or screw in broadheads?
