I got these two years ago, i personally love them with a biscut... I group a 1 inch hole at 20 yards no problem.
with that being said when i move to 40 and farther with a broadhead I sometimes get "tail whips" and the arrow penetrates a right to left angle (about 20 degrees). (still a good group 3-5 in, just "cock eyed" hits)
I am a right handed shooter shooting carbon express arrows, 100 gr tips, out of my 60lb hoyt alpha max.

any ideas?
is it the helical twist rate slowing to greatly?
i don't think its me with "off" shots i am relatively consistent, but i just cant be certain.
i want to try to figure this out this summer... so any help would be appreciated.

bow need broadhead tuned...and/or arrow spine isnt what it needs to be....


different fletchings isnt going to fix your problem...

your problem is with the tune or arrows...

I think your shaft is hitting the WB plastic cage. That is what will give you that whipping action. It sounds to me that either your arrows are not correctly spined, or your nocking point is not correct.
