Default Best place to get bow broad head tuned?

I am looking for the best place in East texas to get my bow broad head tuned. I have it shooting bullet holes with field points but screw on broad heads and it constantly shoots left. Also during arrow flight you can see the arrow kicking. Any help would be appreciated.

If you're getting bullet holes with FP's, you should be able to broadhead tune it yourself.
There are numerous youtube videos on how to DIY.

Rest/cable contact. Try kicking your rest to the right a hair and see if the broadheads move

I have tried numerous tips from YouTube to tune it with no luck. The bow is a Mathews V3 31 30 in draw at 64 lbs shooting Gold tip airstrikes 340 with 100 grain tips. Do I need a stiffer arrow?

Iíd go with a 300 spine. Should have asked what was the bow setup in my first post

I'm not trying argue with anyone here, but I don't see how OP could get bullet holes with FP's if he's having contact of any sort. He said the problem only exists when shooting BH's. Contact with anything should happen no matter what kind of pointis on the end of his arrow, in my humble opinion.
Also, if he's underspined, how can he get a bullet hole with FP's?

I’ve been told a BH will magnifying any problems you are having. A BH will try to fly the arrow and FP won’t. Maybe I’ve been told wrong?

I'm no expert but when my bow is truly tuned (by CCR) shooting bullet holes the broadhead follows unless I have a problem with my arrow inserts....or the broadhead ferrule is tweaked. The broadhead will magnify it ...


Something is a micro off here or there. I'd let a "pro" look at it.

If the bow is tuned correctly with FPs, it should be with BHs as well. That comes with a degree of fault, based on arrow, bow tune, etc.

Should but not always the case. Had to yoke tune mine to get broad heads to fly even after paper tuning bullet holes and then trying to move rest.

I agree with you. That's why I said that he should be able to BH tune it himself, if he has it tuned for FP's. It might take a little tweaking, but really shouldn't be anything that he can't do for himself, other than he might need a press.

Maybe it’s the broadheads ?
I’ve had certain brands that fly weird.
Slick tricks seem to fly like darts from my bow.

It is two different brands of broad heads doing the same thing.

I just searched your location, it’s about in the middle between Houston and DFW. Pick on of the shops North of Houston or go see FND at CCR…it’s a day trip no matter what.

I had the same issue with my VXR 31.5 shooting Magnus stingers. I had On Target Archery spine tune my arrows and I switched to Slick Tricks and now they fly like darts.

Shoot the same arrow multiple times. Rotate the arrow on the knock 1/4 turn. If you get it to fly straight move on to the next arrow and repeat.

Most likely the top cam needs to be shimmed slightly to the right. I am assuming the V3 31 has the Top Hot system. This gets the same results as "yoke tuning" on bows that have yokes.

Here is a video that explains how to use the Mathews Top Hot system.
