How those broadheads shooting?
« on: August 12, 2019, 03:27:24 PM »
Well I went out today and shot my first round with broadheads (slicktricks).  Shot better than I could have asked for.  Touching arrows almost at 40 yards.  Didn't have to change a thing from field points.  Shot 20-50 yards.  Need a little more shot discipline at 50 but arrows are flying great.  How's everyone else shooting out there?

I just started checking. My Shuttle Ts were hitting about 4 inches lower than my field points at 20 yards. I moved the rest up some and the gap is closing. I will try to get them dialed this evening.

Looks like I have a couple more to re-fletch after slicing a few vanes off.

Nothing worse than broadheads not flying good right before season.  I had minor issues last year, but this year they are dialed in.  Only difference is that I shot through paper getting bullet holes.  This year I never did a walk back tune and last year I did.  Either way two or three more shooting sessions and I will be confident.

They shot true to 60, no adjustments needed.  Still seem super sharp, but Mr. RadSav was nice enough to throw in extra blades so I had two to practice with  :tup:
