Maybe if you hammer them in. I wouldn't try that. I've tried using Easton inserts on GT shafting and it is too loose of a fit. Actually, it was the nocks that I did that with and they would pop out on impact. There is a slight increase in the outside diameter for the Gold Tip components.

Depends which arrows and inserts. All arrow manufacturers have a few different diameters. The issue is that easton defines them differently.

.245"/.246" ID shafts and easton's "6.5mm" shafts can use the same components.
Easton's "6mm" shafts are their own size. You would have to get components specifically for that shaft size.
I'm not sure if .205" ID shaft components are compatible with easton's "5mm" shafts or vice versa (I have never had arrows of this diameter).
.166" ID shafts and easton's "4mm" or g-nock shafts can use the same components.

Hope this helps a little.

GT's are .246, 'standard' is .2445. Sometimes it's a tight fit with the GT components in 'other' shafts.

PS it makes no more sense to me that Carbon Express's nothing-to-do-with-deflection spine numbering system. ;-)

I've used only GT Hunters. I had a couple of Easton nocks but never liked forcing them to fit.

Little conversion table for you:

6.5mm=0.2559"
.246"=6.248mm
.245"=6.223mm
.2445"=6.21mm

5.0mm=.19685"
.205"=5.207mm

4mm=.1575"
.166"=4.216mm

I can use the .204 components between the axis and gold tips xt shafts no problem as I have the axis inserts into the gt shafts right now as the insert for the gt is way to heavy for me. I have interchange the victory.166 diameter components between the pierce shafts as well

I keep a field point in my drill when making arrows. Gt acculite inserts are my jam. They are a touch big though so I take and throw em on the fp on the drill and use wet dry sand paper to take material til they are a snug fit

Just so folks don't get confused by this:
Easton arrow sizes are in metric and are nominal outside diameter.
The others who use standard are giving precise inside diameter.
