Re: fix broadheads vs expanding
If you really want to get the best accuracy possible, contact Arrowhead. He'll help get the best out of your setup. Besides making sure your heads, inserts, and shaft are all straight and aligned, I think the most important thing is your front-of-center. I had 2 bad experiences with Spitfires out of my 160 lb Tenpoint, and I blamed it on lack of penetration. I've switched to fixed blades and have yet to have a problem. Technically it might not make a difference, but I believe that the reduced weight of the bolts along with loss of energy from expandables was my problem. Maybe if I had just increased my overall bolt weight and adjusted my FOC, I might get the same penetration out of the expandables compared to the fixed. So you need to do some try and error, but Arrowhead seems to have done the most testing and can get you headed in the right direction and proably save a lot of time and money.
That which does not kill me, only makes me stronger.
