I know lots of folks know about footing carbons but just as many don't know how to do it. My wife filmed me as I explain how I make my stumpers. This is the toughest stumping arrow I have ever seen. Hope it helps someone that is interested but isn't sure how to go about footing an arrow.

I had to make it in 3 sections so it would play on photobucket. each segment is about 2 minutes long.

See you in the stumping woods.

I called the nock a insert a few times. I guess that's why I'm not a moviestar. Can't get all of the lines right. [knothead] Still I think anyone will understand what I'm talking about by watching the video.

Very nice [thumbsup] I use JB weld, but after watching this I'm going to give the Gorilla glue a shot, I have used it on my fishing arrows and it works good on those.

Nice vidio Duane. Nothing like seeing it versus just reading about it. Thanks

The 1.5" sleeve will add around 20 gr to the tip according to my powder scale. Since I have a bunch of 125 gr magnus 2 blades I have basically made them into 145 gr heads.

The fletch cap doesn't affect the arrow any differently than a non capped arrow. I have shot groups with both intermingled and for me they all shot the same.

These videos are for CE 150. If you use a different shaft you will have to find out which size aluminum will work for you. Everything else should be the same though.

If you have tapered shafts I don't believe you can cut off the arrow at the nock end like the CE's. If you can't I don't think you would want to use this method because once the glue sets it is permanent.

Thatís a nice video you have come up with. I did try, to foot a CX250 with a 2117 and found it to be around .010 too small. The CX250s O.D. measured .305. I ended up going with the 2216 and around .006 - .007 slop.

Blackstick, going by the dimensions, a 2219 should be a perfect fit, .006 smaller ID than the 2216.

Same way I do mine, the other day, I made a 10yard shot at what I thought was an old rusty one pound coffee can... It turned out to be a rock! My arrow hit so hard, it blew the insert out,never to be found again. But the arrow is still in great shape on both ends. I just installed a new insert and am still shooting that arrow!

I am going over to my stock of "fixin'" arrows right now!

In case some of you do not realize the Easton arrow numbers designate measurements. The first 2 numbers are 64ths of an inch outside and the second set of numbers are the wall thickness in thousandths. So a 2216 is 22/64" outside with a .019" wall.
The diameter of the hole inside the alum shaft is the outside dimension of the arrow minus twice the wall thickness.
21/64=.328"
22/64=.343"
Just subtract 2 times the wall thickness of you arrow for the inside dimension.

2115 is .328 O.D.-.030(2x.015" wall)= .298" I.D.

2117 is .294" I.D.
2213 is .317" I.D.
2216 is .311" I.D.
2219 is .305" I.D.
Hope this helps....and check my math [readit]

I have noticed the outside dimensions of carbon arrows are different even if they are the same spine number, especially if they do or do not have a silk screened wood grain or camo on them.
I guess I'm suggesting you measure the carbons before making up the aluminum sleeves.
