Default Weight Tubes

I bought some Gold Tip carbon arrows with the 5 grain per inch weight tubes. I set them up and I have them shooting like darts. I'm real happy with the results of the GT with the weight tubes. The only proplem I'm having is the weight tubes seem to be pushing the nocks back after each shot. Do any of you guys use the tubes or ever heard of this proplem? If so what is the answer to stop this? Thanks!!

I had the same problem with the weight tubes pushing nocks out.

My fix was to get 100gr brass inserts

Same problem. I was told that I didn't cut the tubes exactly right, but I not sure that was the problem. Try pushing the nock though a plastic grocery store bag and then into the shaft. That was solution I was told will work. I have not tried it yet though. I just keep pushing them back into place.

I will try the plastic bag trick. I was thinking about pulling the tubes back out and putting a small dab of glue on them. Thanks for the tips

Kanga what does the 100gr brass insert do to keep the tube from pushing out the nock? I don't know if I want to add anymore weight to the arrow because the are flying great as they are set up. Do you mean a insert on the nock end or the front end?? Thanks!!

No with the brass inserts I do away with the weight tubes altogether

Plus with the inserts I get a higher FOC by having the extra weight at the front of the arrow not spread out over the shaft.
