"No doubt this tool could have been invented and produced anywhere but the fact that it is of German design and made to German quality standards will only inspire confidence, of course the design has been well thought out, I have tried to think what other features they could have incorporated, but, it is so packed full of useful and clever features only the addition of waffle making facilities will improve the concept."
about T-Tips (tang points):
"Once again the manufacturers have produced an excellently engineered product tailored to suit a particular purpose, the points are made from quality material which is durable and looks good. Using the arrow Fix Tool to produce the hole makes these easy to fit."
"Luckily the Arrow-Fix people have just produced a rather nice accessory for their tool. It is a special 4mm drill designed for Bamboo. The use of the tool means that you can get a clean perfectly central hole as the tool has several sizes of guide insert ..."
"The Arrow-Fix folk have done it again. They have created another great accessory for this incredible tool, pretty soon no doubt they will have an accessory that will bake you a Victoria sponge and make a 'nice cup of tea'..."
über PT Power-Taper:
"Once again Arrow Fix get a huge thumbs up from Archers Review, this has been a bugbear of mine for almost 2 decades.... I don't know how many folk out there are struggling with inefficient taper tools but this one ticks all the boxes - the tool is so robust it will no doubt last a lifetime so the nominal investment will be repaid over your archery career."
