    i shoot easton axis arrows and the problem im running into is that most fixed blade broadheads are bigger than the shaft itself. Does anyone else shoot these arrows and if so what kind of broadheads are you using?

    Only effects are harder to pull out of your target. Don't let it bug ya, it will have no negative affect on a critter. What do I use? The short list..
    Slick tricks (these are probably the closest in diameter shank to shaft)
    Wasp SST
    Magnus Snuffer SS
    G5 Montecs
    Nap Razorcap
    Wacem

    Mechanicals
    Rocket Steelheads
    RM Snypers
    Take your pick, they all shoot well.

    easton makes broadhead adaptor rings, i used them on my acc arrows when i was shooting thunderheads. Its just a taperd washer that you put on the shank to bevel it down close to the dia of the arrow shaft. I think they added like 5 grains of weight.

    I use Axis with NAP Spitfires and the furrule overlaps the shaft. This is going to be season 3 with that setup and I have no issues with it at all.
    I don't use the adapter rings.

    broadhead

    I also shoot smaller diameter shafts and have had extremely good fortune with broadheads on these shafts.
    I wouldn't consider this a problem. Actually, in my opinion this is a good thing.
    The broadhead makes a big hole and the shaft has no resistance as it enters the animal.

    You are absolutely right, this is a good thing. Less resistance.
