Using Big Jims Quick Stick hot melt glue, I have never had an insert move at all on a FMJ, and I can get it out easily any time I want to!

Wish they would make them with a different finish.  Not a big fan of the diamond plate pattern.

You can not beat a FMJ for penetration in a hunting arrow.  They are not as durable but not bad. I shoot carbon for practice but stick with with FMJ for hunting

What weight points they sell for them? I ask because I'm planning on shooting 175-200 gr heads. Do they make the smaller field tips for them in those weights? Because of them bring so skinny. Thsnks

I've shot both. I prefer the durability of the axis traditionals and have shot them for the last couple of years. Great shaft.

You can shoot 9/32" field point on the FMJ's. The heaviest I have seen is 145gr. But they also make heavy brass inserts (50gr, 75gr, 100gr) that fit the FMJ shafts.

Three Rivers has 9/32nd field points up to 145 grain .... I shoot both axis and fmj with 100 grn brass inserts and 150 grn broadheads and the 145 grn field points ,,, they fly great
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good

Same here. I do have to change to 125s for certain bows.

I've shot both.  The only complaint I had about the FMJ's is I had a couple get small dents in them when they hit rocks while stump shooting.  

They're still a really tough shaft.  That said, I have plenty of weight with the Axis shafts and a bunch of weight up front, so I'll stay that way from now on.

They both fly fantastic out of my bow. Just took a spike whitetail with an FMJ. It got all bent when he fell on it. I've bent and destroyed more fmjs than trad axis so far and wont be going back to them. I prefer the Trad axis over the two.
