    Okay... my Broadheads are hitting 3" left but grouping from 15 - 25 yards tight enough to cut veins

    My field points are grouping tight enough to bust nocks 2 inches right and 1/2 an inch high.

    How do I fix this? If its not "fixed" by tomorrow I'm sighting in the broad heads, to hell with field tips!

    ps: whisker biscuit rest.

    The following assumes you are a righty.....

    Don't worry about the 1/2" high just yet. Your broadheads are indicating that your arrows are slightly limber. Try pushing your rest in about 1/16" and see what happens. If the distance between broadheads and field points decreases, you're going the right way. If it increases, move the rest out in 1/16" increments.

    If this works, then you may find that the up and down difference takes care of itself. If it doesn't, then do the same exercise with your nockpoint/loop.

    And in all truth....a 2 1/2" difference between broadheads and field points at 20 yards just ain't too bad!:D

    And if you are a lefty (which I think you are), then you are already on the road to perfection. But the same instructions apply!

    I can't get them to clear my freakcurve rest!:lol: :frusty: :frusty:

    I don't think they'll work for Dreadly with his Whisker Biscuit either!

    Seriously, I have experimented with them breifly with my compound and a drop away rest. Lots of potential there!

    Do you hunt with them?

    I was afraid of that. It's probably time to sight in for the broadheads. A 2.5" impact differential just isn't bad!:D

    Yes but when I was shooting X's with my field and broadheads with my OG and now I'm barely keeping them both in the circle I get pissy.

    Ehh well... wonder how they fly at 70 meters :laugh:

    I like tekans, the blades are super easy to replace and they are solid, 1.3125 cutting diameter, 1 piece body 5/8" cut on contact tip. Very nice, my brother shoots the Rage 3 blades, no complaints here! Good luck.

    Look out he may jump you.
    That was my point Dredly. Try some thing new. Blades act like wings and try to plan the head. Try some turbo nocks (not the ones with the vane)
    I have shot some broadheads that hit the same and some do not. Lose the WB because it limits your tuning.
    As for the high jacking if you want help ask but attack me for trying. lol
    That's Bunnymans job here lol
