G5 Outdoors A.S.D. Combo Kit
Great for saving arrows!
I got one of these for a few reasons, some arrows I have had for a while were not cut very well so the Inserts did not square up and spin quite right. Then I had several arrows that the inserts had become deformed from the many practice sessions through the summer. With the sanding face I am able to square the shaft to the insert, and carbide blade I can have a smooth square insert for the point to screw into. Arrows spin truer and fly much better than ever before! There is a video on YouTube by the company explaining proper use of the tool, recommend you watch it to see how easy this is to use. As for the price it pays for itself if you can save 3 arrows from the dumpster, I just either fixed inserts or changed inserts on a dozen gold tip arrows I had in a box and used this for every single one, all the arrows are spinning good and flying great! That right there saved me $100 worth of new custom made arrows.

This is well made and does the intended job, but it takes some practice to be able rotate the arrow and keep it down on the grooves on the ASD. But it is possible and still a good tool. The only other issue,and may help with the use, is that it needs a wider base area to sit and be stable. Also needs rubber type bottom material to keep it from sliding around on your table or work bench. Perhaps even a way to mount it permanently on the table.

The G5 ASD is like a G6
I bought the ASD so i could build my own arrows using my dremel to cut to length. I did not want to purchase an arrow saw but the dremel wouldn't gaurantee a square cut. I ordered a dozen caron blanks, cut them and used the ASD on the arrow shaft and the insert. My groups have never been better. Not even with a fresh set of arrows from my bow tech, whom i am trying to cut out of my hunting expense equation. G5 did a nice job of making a good tool that will fit in to most accessory boxes, but a wider base needs to be considered in the next version.
