    I am looking for a answer to a reoccuring problem. I used a SST mechanical last year and had many ploblems with their flight characteristics and noise. I tried to move the band forward with not much success. I have since tried to re-fletch using a 4 vane 3" and 4" right helical to offset the broadhead. Is this just a problem with the faster bow speeds on the newer model bows. I'm shooting a Drenalin at 68Lbs and Vapor Trail strings.

    I have never shot the type of broadhead you mentioned but I recomend shooting a fixed blade head and your problem is solved....:peace:

    I'm with bullfiddle I shoot a fixed blade. The magnus stinger 4-blade, and the trophy ridge Hematic they are both 100g. and they shoot really great

    Cause it sounds like if he's moving the rubber thingamagig the blades are opening to soon and it's planing or doing something crazy...:noidea:

    true, but maybe he just needs a different mechanical. I myself shoot fixed blades, but you should try some different heads and see how they fly. I shoot slick tricks because they fly the best for me.
