Default Fixed Broadheads that fly like field points??

What is the most accurate fixed blade broadhead that flys just like your field point? I bought the Muzzy-MX4's and they shoot approximtely 6 inches too low. Any comments are greatly appreciated.

I tried the Wack 'em four blades before a trip to brushy hill this year and they shot exactly the same out to 40 yards. I have always hunted with expandables, so it worked out well.

Your bow may need some fine tuning, the Muzzys shouldn't be hitting 6" low.

I also think that your bow might need tuning, but crimson talons have always worked great for me.

I have to agree with most everyone else that you need to do a little tuning
Here's a bh tuning chart that might help you...

G5 Strikers, SlickTricks fly very well. I had trouble with Muzzys myself and it wasn't the tuning.

Default Broadhead

What does your field point weigh? Is it the same weight as your broadhead?

It comes down to how well tuned your bow it. Some might fly better with a less than perfectly tuned bow than others, IMHO. The owner of the local archery shop is a friend, and I dropped my bow off for a week so he could 'play' with it a couple summers ago when I had tuning problems. When I picked it up it shot Thunderhead 3 blades like my field points at 50 yard. I shoot Magnus 2 blade (the vented ones) with my recurve, so 1 day I said 'what the heck' I put a couple on my compound arrows and shot into the sand pit at the range, and they grouped right with my Thunderheads.

Beyond that, I think it's personal preference, which is driven my experience, recommendations and marketing programs.

I shot Crimson Talon's when I first went bowhunting about 5 years ago. They flew great, but a year or so later when I purchased them, they didn't seem to fly so well, and I have tried again. The Rage broadheads fly perfect, but that is what Mechanical's are supposed to do. Thanks you for your time and assistance. I will check in to tuning my bow and go from there.

Thanks,
-Allen

My current set up, and every bow i have hunted with, will shoot every fixed bladed head I have tried, just as my feild point. If your bow is set up correctly yours should also.

Default Broadhead Drop

I used to have broadhead flight problems,but I listened the tuning advice I got on here.
I will say that my Snuffers hit slightly lower than my feildpoints about an inch aat 20 yards and 2 at 35 . I sight my bow to my broadheads and practice with my feild tips .You have to figure a little extra drag from your blades but 6 inches seems extreme. You didnt say at what range.

I don't know of a broadhead that flies "just like" a field point, but with proper tuning, there are many that can have the same P.O.I.
The head that is the most forgiving for tune is the Wac'm Triton.
There are others that are close, but the Triton IS the most forgiving.
I'm shooting Slick Trick heads this year, and my tuning had to be a little more precise than when I shot Wac'm's.
I try a new and different head each year so that I can have an informed opinion.

Once your bow is tuned it will shoot them all pretty good.

My bow shoots Shuttle T;s, Muzzy 3 blades, Slick Tricks, Steelforce and thunderheads all the same as my field points. I shoot the Shuttle T's and have never had a bad experience.

My wifes bow shoots all the above and the Muzzy 4 blades the same.

I absolutely cannot get the 4 blade muzzy to shoot out of my bow though?

Just thought I would throw that in there as it might be an issue with that particular head. I know my bow is tuned perfectly and shoots many fixed blade heads perfectly. I will not shoot a mechanical any longer.

As stated above many times - Get your bow tuned right and you will not experience these problems.

This man gets a Gold Star. A properly tuned bow shooting an arrow of the proper spine will shoot most fixed heads to the same POI as field tips.

Some do group better than others though.
