Do you mean how to broadhead tune? A 4 blade is gonna be the same as a 2 or 3 blade. Move your rest in small increments, in the OPPOSITE direction of where your bh's are hitting compared to your fp's. Eventually they should group together assuming your using a properly spined arrows and you have good vane clearance.

Try downloading a copy of Easton's Tuning Guide. Easton's website or Hunter's Friend should have it. Many popular tuning methods including broadhead tuning. I think it's also a Sticky at the top of the Technical section on Archery Talk. It'll cover most anything you need to learn.

It doesn't matter how many blades are on the head. Tuning methods are the same.

Default Fourblade

No different than a three blade.

You might get a little more drag and head might hit lower for that reason.

Slick Tricks tune easily. I like the 100grn standards.

Tune your bullet point. Remove the point and put on the slick trick. You shouldn't have to retune (or just fine tune it like point).

I think you are talking about lining up the fletchings and blades. Forget about this. It has no merit in archery what so ever other than you feeling good that your arrows look good.

Purely in-flight performance: Slick Tricks can't be beat IMO. I've shot them all, standards, mags, Grizz, Razor, all fly excellent. Planning to put a Grizz through a deer today in fact. We'll see how that plan works out...

I'm with bigbulls on the fletching allignment, bunch of bunk, and it makes 0 difference in anything.

Default slick tricks do what they are told to do

I went out and shot 9 slick tricked arrows and the same 9 arrows with fieldpoints, I shot 18yards, 25yards and 18 yards out of a tree. They all hit the same spot where I aimed them to be.
As long as your set up is properly tuned, they should fly the same.
