Default Field tip Vs. Broadhead Flight (help!)

I finished tuning my bow and shot my field tips (100gr). Then I installed my broadheads (100gr Thunderheads) and they shoot 6 inches low. [:@]Does anyone have any info on why this is so. I believe I have checked everything. Should I just practice w/broadheads? or is something wrong.

If I had taken the time to read some of these postings, I probably would have realized a bare shaft tune would correct this. What do you expect from an amature.
Thanks anyway guys.

It sounds as if you need to lower your nocking point , or raise your rest ,slightly .
