In my opinion it's hard to beat Hot-Melt... Strong hold, with quick removal and replacement.

blue top gorilla glue for the brass inserts. I don't use aluminum nocks because I shoot lumenoks in all my bolts.

Regular "Gorilla" glue for wood,will put 'em in there and they will NEVER come out! Directions say to dampen one of two pcs. to be glued together. You can skip this if you wish, or use a q-tip to swab inside and make sure there are no dust particles left in there from your squareing proc.. This glue expands and could push insert out of shaft so I use masking tape as a clamp.Its great stuff. never loose one again kind of tough.

I use blue top Gorilla glue for inserts, nocks and fletching. :)

Krazy Glue Gel for everything. Glue is expensive but I don't come cheap either. LOL Tried that blue top Gorilla Glue and it is the worst stuff I have ever used. Turns everything white. It is cheap and likely the reason.

I don't think I've used anything more secure than 24 hr Easton HIT glue. Second to that would be any other 24 hr epoxy. Any epoxy reacts favorably with heat on removal, much better than instant glues.
