I am new to bow hunting and I am getting my stuff set up and I was wondering what inserts to use for the following Easton shafts:

  • 9.5 gpi 400 axis third generation N-fused carbon arrow shaft, nocks and fletchings.
  • 9.5 gpi 340 axis high strength carbon arrow shaft, nocks and fletchings.
  • 8.1 gpi 500 axis third generation N-fused carbon arrow shaft, nock and fletching

Any help would greatly be appreciated!!!

Each Axis shaft has the "Hidden Insert Technology" (short HIT) and therefore you need a HIT-insert. Normally these shafts are already delivered with such! So be aware that you don't buy additional ones.

  • X HIT conventional inserts included

From Lancasterarchery

You can get them for example here.

The Deep Six RPS Steel insert is also compatible but I would absolutely recommend the HIT inserts.

  • X HIT conventional thread inserts - compatible
  • Deep Six RPS steel inserts - compatible

From the official Axis product site

P.S.: Axis absolutely rock! =)

"I shoot Axis because they're tough shafts, but more importantly, I shoot them for the increased penetration I get on big game." - Fred Eichler

  • I am pretty sure these have not come with the inserts as I tried to add broadheads and they just slip in and out of the top pf the shaft. Thanks you for the awesome and quick response!! Andy
