Default Truest flying broadhead

I've got to switch broadheads. I have always shot Muzzy 4 blade 125 gr but I can no longer get them. I was wondering what the truest flying broadhead is. I'm wanting something that I don't necessarily have to adjust my sights from where my field points are hitting.

If your setup is tuned well, and you get the same weight broadhead as your field point, most any of them will fly well!!!!

I won’t shoot anything except slick tricks 1” standard and NAP spitfires. I had to change from muzzy too. Never would fly good past 35-40 yds. These 2 fly good to 70.

slick tricks.....i found that in a pack of the 4 blade muzzys i couldnt get them to all spin test without a wobble....i could switch the trocar tips to different ferrules and get some correction. they mass produce those aluminum ferrules and their tolerances arent as tight as they used to be. i have never had an issue with the slick tricks not spin testing perfectly.

QAD Exodus. Tough blades and they absolutely fly the same as we field points.

On a general note, I think that the bigger the cutting diameter, the less likely they will fly like a FP. Bigger blades are more affected by the air (not just wind) so it's a trade off you have to make. Some blades are more aerodynamic than others which is why cutting diameter is not the only factor.

BINGO!

I have been shooting in the afternoons and field points, slicktricks and Grimreapers all grouping together.

Only problem I have found is a Slicktrick/lighted nock combo. And I think the problem is the nock throat is too tight. Mechanicals group so guessing having blades out gives enough steer to the front that it cannot correct?

If you bow is tuned and the arrows spin true then most of the good heads will fly great. For the best flight I would think about smaller heads in terms of cut diameter and length. Some of the very best I have seen are Iron Will and Wacíem. I have also had great flight out the smaller slick tricks and vipertrick. Lots of heads will fly good enough if we do our part.

Most all quality broadheads will fly true if your bow is properly tuned. Your field tipped arrows should match your broadhead tipped hunting arrows in weight and spine if you expect them to impact the same.
If you can't achieve the matching results then sight in with the broadhead tipped arrows, and practice with the same arrows before the hunt.

From what I have researched, I'm telling you now, if you haven't looked at the Annihilator Broadheads, you are doing yourself a disservice. They may not have a giant cutting diameter but they leave a hole. I have 3 packs being shipped my way Friday!!

I shoot big huge 200gr Simmons Sharks, and I able to get them to fly with fp's out to 50 yards. Anything beyond that, who knows where it is going. Point is, learn how to tune your bow. Took me awhile to get it right but I was tired of going to pro shops.

Probably doesn't help right now since they're only making a 100 grain but i suspect they'll add a 125 grain soon.

Well tuned bow (bare shaft) and most of the smaller heads will fly like darts. A few of my favorites are slick tricks, Wac em, Ramcats, QAD exodus, and trophy taker shuttle T locks

None of them will fly like field tips at longer ranges....70-120 yards. The physics don’t allow it.

As stated, a well tuned bow and correct spine and all broadheads will fly great. By tuned that means the rest. That means a bare shaft will fly out of your bow straight and true.

Assuming your bow is tuned and you have the right spine on your arrow, most fly well. I have the best luck with black hornets, slick trick magnums/vipertricks, shuttle t's, and NAP hellrazors.

Lol for real. Mechanicals will always fly closer to a field tip than a fixed blade. Yes even slick tricks. Every mechanical i've tried flys better than my slick tricks at longer range.

Mechanicals all fly true because they are barely bigger than field points. Mechanicals were invented for folks that don't know how to tune their bows to get fixed heads to fly

I know last year I had an issue with Rage Hypodermic Trypan. 3 shots from 15, 23, and 31 with misses. ****** I said I would never use them again. WAS NOT the mechanical broadhead as it was the lighted noc not being seated right. Fixed the issue and they fly true. This question you have is going to be a confidence choice for you not a “Truest flying broadhead” since as you can see almost every company and broadhead has been listed. Good luck with you’re search and I hope you whack em this year.

Get you some NAP spitfires and don't look back. There's a reason they've been around for so long. The original 1 1/2" cut work just as good if not better then the 1 3/4" cut. Have not experience with the 2" cut spitfire, but in my opinion the blade angle is a little to steep, and it's more like chopping than slicing through the animal. Blood trails a blind man could follow, and I seen critters found from marginal shots, that otherwise probably wouldn't have been found If a muzzy or small fixed blade had been used(and I started off with muzzy's when I was in highschool along with all my hunt'n buddies) A big mechanical makes a difference. If you're dead set on fixed. The dirt naps shoot like field points and make a big hole, and you can buy knock off on Ebay called Red Devils for really cheap and they work great(I've been using them on pigs). Some come razor sharp, others you can hit with and AccuSharp and there ready to go.

Not a broadhead issue, tuning and form issue...

Probably not more then a .05% of TBH members that can outshoot their broadheads

Muzzy "Switch". Don't know if they are still making them but there are some on ebay.

Kinda gimmicky on the adjustment deal but I set mine at 1 & 1/4" cut and they fly "better than a field point" (google their video review).

Fly as good as any I've used (actually better) and have a BIG CUT for a "fixed" head.

$80ish per DZ (12) on ebay.

If you have to line up a broad head with your fletchings to get it to fly then your bow is not tuned.

I get great flight out of both the Simmons Land and Tiger sharks but the best flying head I have ever shot personally is the Helix 225. The simple/compact design and the consistency of weight head to head promotes unbeatable accuracy and awesome flight.
