    I was planning on posting a new thread but I saw the "Muzzy" thread and that is where my problem is. Please read my latest post and offer suggestions if you have the time. Thanks a lot ahead of time.

    Oh, after you read if you have a suggestion on a new broadhead (other than rage) let me know.

    Thanks

    It can be one of three things

    1. arrows are weak
    2. muzzy has bad QC and the broadheads may not spin test or weigh the same. in a hurry try montec broadheads
    3. bow is out of tune or maybe just your rest is

    Slick TRICK is the (TRICK) $24.99 for a 3pk not much of a loss if you dont like them. Get the magnums though the are a lot sharper out of the pak.

    4 blade muzzy's have a lot of surface area to use with a new bow. The new bows shoot so much faster than old bows and transfer more energy to the arrow. Think of it this way the more surface area the big the wings on the plane, any gust of wind will move your arrow. This is not to say you can not tune the arrow but I don't think you will get consistant flight to match your field points.

    Once you get a broadhead that groups you may still need to tune your rest. I suggest that you walk back tune to best flight.

    Good luck

    I agree with Nutcase....it is a tuning problem with the bow, or spine problem with the arrows. Easy fix:D

    Make sure your arrows are spined correctly, if they are, walk back tune with the broadheads.

    I like the muzzy heads but have had the same issue with the 3 blades. I would shot mine and see which one hit the closest to where I was aiming then take that arrow and try to set all my other arrows the same way usally lining a blade up with a vane on the arrow. A little teflon tape helps with this then I would resight my bow with broadheads. I have had the same issue out of 4 different bows. Thats why I now shoot wac em broadheads they are fixed blade and fly just like my feild tips no resighting needed. Also in my opion I have shot grim reapers and am thinking about switching back to them they fly just like your feild tips with no sight adjustment needed. dad has killed 4 or 5 with the same heads over the last few years they are great heads and really put a hurting on deer most of them never went over 20 yards and 2 of them never moved straight down. Also all have been pass throughs and arrow stuck in the dirt.
