INSTALLATION TIPS - OPTIONAL HALF-OUT / TARGET POINT
Install glue-in components with any reputable 24 hr set epoxy adhesive.
We prefer AAE Epoxy for all insert, half-out and outsert installation.
If a Loctite adhesive is used, it MUST be an impact resistant formula.
Beware! Cyanoacrylate adhesives set fast - you have limited time to move the half-out into place when installing in the carbon shaft. DRY TEST FIT PRIOR!
Don't skimp on the prep! Ensure both the half-out AND the carbon shaft have be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.
Don't use methylated spirits, mineral turpentine, brake cleaner, rubbing alcohol or Shellite.
Don't soak the arrow shaft in the isopropyl for an extended period of time - a small amount of isopropyl on a cotton tip is all that is required to clean the internal surface of the shaft.
Use a dry cotton tip to remove any alcohol that has not evaporated. A clean cotton rag and a little isopropyl will sufficiently clean the post of the insert.
Clean both shaft and half-out until any factory residue is removed, and you won't go wrong.
Please refer to the Evolusion Arrows® Spine Chart and Safety Information.
