Question for muddy

Unread postby Hunter74 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:50 pm

Hey muddy I was on archery talk and in one of the threads someone mentioned something about muddy making collars for the end of easton axis arrows... Is that you? And if it is could you give me some info because I'm wanting something like that for mine?

They are taking some aluminum arrows and cutting a small piece off with an arrow saw. They then epoxy that on the end of the arrow making it very strong with the insert inside the arrow. It does make the end of the arrow larger. So if you have a foam target for practice i think it would make it very hard to pull arrows. I have an arrow saw but no aluminum arrows or I would cut you some.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

Thanks for the offer Stanley... I'm not positive just yet if that's the rout I wanna go... It's a good idea and the arrows being hard to pull isn't a big deal, my real concern would be how to make it work on my arrow squaring tool

The axis arrows use a stone to square up the ends. I think the stone would square up the aluminum epoxied on the end as well.

Correct, when I got a set of axis arrows it came with the stone disk, I think the G5 asd works better though although its cool it was included in the price of the arrows, the g5 tool wasn't cheap. Does anyone do this on full metal jacket arrows? I had a set of 6 of them and am debating on going back to them and footing them for added strength. I have got to the point I don't worry about speed, I want accuracy and penetration and will make any sacrifice to achieve both, although I have never not had a pass through yet with my current set-up, so I may be splitting hairs.

I agree the G5 tool works very well, thats what we use in our shop. Nightwishmike has some experience with collars and strengthening the front of his arrows, I know he was impressed..he did it on his traditional set-up, maybe he'll chime in

Nope. If I did would I openly admit to using/preferring Lone Wolf stands and sticks every opportunity I got on this site!?!? LOL! ! :-)

I've had the nickname muddy since 7th grade. When muddy Inc came along I went to their Booth at the deer classic and told them This. They wouldn't give me royalties! ;-)

Yes the axis arrows come with a stone but you would have a tough time squaring the end with it... It's more for honeing the end so heads would fit inside the shaft... I use the G5 tool too and it works very well... I wouldn't be able to get my broad heads to tune the way I do without it... And that's the draw back to footing the arrows like they show... I'd have to modify the tool to work with the larger end and I'm not sure how to do that with keeping everything square
