I have a Mathews Heli'm that I just recently purchased. I plan on shooting Easton FMJ Arrows for Hunting and Easton Fatboys for 3D. When I change the type of arrow that I am shooting in my bow is there any specific thing I need to do to make sure that the arrows fly correctly or that the bow stays sighted in?

You may well have to adjust you sights with the change; no way around it. Probably enough difference in weight there you will see it a small change.Bear Kodiak Magnum, Easton XX75 Legacy w/Zwicky's, Great Northern Quiver

For sure adjusting your sights. You also might need to adjust your rest or nock point height since the FMJs are smaller diameter than the Fatboys.

I agree with the previous two posts, you will be adjusting sights and launcher every time you switch. Most of the people I shoot with use the same arrows for target, 3D and field. It makes it simpler overall.

They've done it for so long that they already know where their starting points are and just have to fine tune the setup. The only way you get that type of confidence and knowledge about your equipment is by doing it--no shortcuts.
