1. Due to the tight tolerances Naptyme tries to ensure, slight sanding may need to take place to ensure a snug fitting Insert Outsert Footer System. Place 240 grit sand paper in your finger tips and roll the shaft back and forth in a circular motion approximately 18-20mm from the end of your shaft, This will be enough to allow the Outsert to be fitted. Wipe with an alcohol/cleaning agent and use a cotton bud to clean the internal wall after cutting to your desired length, No need to clean any further than 30mm. NOTE – Never use degreasers which leave an oily film and also ONLY use recommended arrows saws

  2. Always assemble Insert Outsert Footer System ( IOFS ) tightly with your fingers then slide into/over the shaft to make sure the tolerance is sufficient before gluing.

  3. For maximum performance of your Naptyme shaft we recommend using an arrow spinner to finding the perfect arrow & IOFS alignment, This ensures your arrows flight is crisp, consistent and is somewhat critical with broadheads so it doesn’t increase the planing effect, Even major companies recommend this process. Marking the shaft and Outsert with a white paint or visible texter pen once you have found perfect alignment allows correct positioning when sliding on after gluing. If Naptyme or Loctite glue is used you will only have 15 seconds before the glue wont allow outsert to be moved.

  4. Apply a small amount of glue around the insert (Do not fill Outsert) starting roughly the opposite side of your mark, slide on and make 1 full revolution quickly back to your alignment mark, wipe off excess glue then test spin again and set aside until all shafts have been completed.

  5. Inspect your fletching jigs and make sure they are free of dust and old glue, new glue will cause a reaction and it will melt again causing issues.

  6. Making sure your work area is clean again, Start by cleaning all shafts from Nock to logo (150mm) as well as the foot of your vanes with again with your quality cleaning agent. Although vanes are new they still can have debris or dust which wont allow full contact for gluing.

  7. Be Extremely CAREFUL using Loctite 406 as its a very runny glue and not only causes a mess but will put glue in unwanted areas like jigs, nocks etc advise is use sparingly.

  8. Run a very small bead or evenly placed dots of glue along your vane, then clamp securely making sure even pressure is applied, waiting 30 seconds, remove clamp wiping away any residue on clamp and along vanes edge. Wiping back towards the vanes foot will also help secure the edge.

  9. Once all arrows have been fletched apply small dots of glue to the front edge of the vane this will hopefully stop any vanes peeling back when passing thru an animal.

  10. Good luck and happy hunting!!
