clean the inserts screw in a field point.

From: JTV
Glue backed up into the need to clean out the threads....heat up a field point with a propane torch and carefully screw it in while still hot(do this a few times till the threads are clean)...of course hold it with a pair of pliers....Jeff

Try turning your broadhead backwards until it skips over the first thread making a click sound, then start to tread them in. This may help.

From: monk
An 8/32 bottoming tap will do a great job....Chuck it up on your cordless drill, set the tension to as low as it will go (#1 ??), keep a loose grip on the arra'shaft and you can do 3-400 in an hour. LOL

From: Drummer Boy
Use a starter tap center's better no need for a bottom tap it's drilled through.

It's a sign from God!

From: Drummer Boy
Sorrey monk you are right it is a blind hole in a insert if you have to go all the way you do need a bottom tap.Most of the time you don't have to tap it that far.Year's ago I borrowed a starter tap from work and ground some of the taper off just to clean the first few threads that's normaly all you have to do.

From: Bigpizzaman
you are lucky, it's a sign use another head all the "rage" about the rage is pure marketing! Seen it fail too many times either opening before shot or poor penetration!

K-Y Jelly?


Just clean as mentioned some cheap inserts get out of specs

Fiddle some

I'm having same problem, the broadhead threaded portion seems to be 1 size smaller than the insert in the arrow

It’s a sign

China Rages?

I would try to run a die over it. If I didn't have a die I would go to the hardware store and get a nut to try on the threads. This would prove the broadhead was the problem. It is more than likely glue in the insert threads.

Damn...I had an answer in mind, but too many guys beat me to the punch!

From: EmptyFreezer
Did they deliver the broadheads via Hot Air Balloon? May be a sign..

From: WYelkhunter
"Did u buy the deep 6 verision? They won’t screw in normal insert"

First thing that I thought of

From: ILbowhntr
Still junk after all these years

From: Woods Walker
Maybe they need more privacy? ;-)

Best way to fix it is to remove from arrow tip, find and deposit into the nearest trash receptacle and buy literally and COC 3-4 blade fixed head.

Def a sign… run don’t walk
