About the Asgard APD
The Asgard APD is a single piece APD made of molded polyethylene plastic, the same material Siloflex is made from. It consists of a nock and a round APD ring integrated into one unit. It is meant to be used on 1⁄4Ē fiberglass shafting only. Donít try to make them work on wooden shafts, please. Due to its design, it can only be used in longbows if you are a right handed archer. If you are a left handed archer, use Routed Channel Siloflex APDs, or another design.
You donít need to use fletches if you use the Asgard APD on your combat archery arrows. The ring is meant to serve not only as an APD but also as an airfoil.
If your Kingdom permits it and your combat archery crossbow is designed for it, you can use the Asgard APD on a crossbow bolt. Snip off the nock tips and file the end down smooth. Use Baldar Blunts on the other end. Remember, Society rules forbid heavy and light crossbow bolts on the same field at the same time. If you are using a heavy crossbow of 600 ip or higher and it is channeled to use Fellwalker or tubular bolts, be aware that your bow can launch light crossbow bolts made from Baldar Blunts and the Asgard APD. This could prove dangerous. Please be careful!!
Installing the Asgard APD
First, keep in mind that it is very, very difficult to get anything to bond to Siloflex. Numerous methods and innumerable adhesives and adhesive combinations have been very extensively tried, and have not been successful. If you donít care to reinvent the wheel and do care that your arrows with Asgard APDs pass inspection, please follow these directions and take them seriously!!
