    Do the standard CX Maxima Hunter inserts accept the screw in PDP type weights? I am looking to add some weight to the front of my arrow to prevent me from using 125gn broadheads. The 125gn Montec Strikers are perfect for me, but I have had problems getting them to spin/balance correctly with that clunky brass washer. I would like to add the difference in weight to the back of the insert and just use the 100gn head instead. Thanks for the help.

    I’ve used set screws in the same thread pitch and size as the broadheads to add weight to the front on my arrows. I believe it was a one inch long set screw that will give you approx 25 grains. I just screw it into the insert and hopefully your inserts are threaded all the way through and open I the back side. Screw it in deep enough so that your points still seat right and it will add the proper weight. I’ll check when I get home for the correct length to give to added weight. You’ll be looking for a #8-32 set screw.
