Yes, just a little lip goes over the shaft to protect it they say. Same relative design as their previous outsert that was easily bent. best option is either their SS insert/outsert at 93 grains or the Firenock outsert that fits around the shaft.
I use the stainless steel,but if you hit something hard that outsert can shatter the end of the shaft. The aluminum usually just bends. So,I guess depending on the glue you use you could replace the cheaper alum. Outsert and keep shooting the arrow. I'll stick with the stainless,though.
