stick with your muzzies. Just put a mark on your site for field tips and a mark for broadheads and you'll always have a referance point. Doing alittle adjustment once or twice a year is better than going to mechanicals IMO.Taz

It's never a problem with the broadheads. It's paying attention to detail--like broadhead alignment with the shaft. And that only works if the shafts are straight in the first place (carbon or alum makes no difference). And micro-tuning the bow/arrow combination. Most often it's all in the tuning. Just depends on how much time you want to spend and how much you want to learn.

Download the Maintenance and Tuning Guide from www.eastonarchery.com. This will help you more than any of us can explain it.

I am a big fan of Rocky Mountain heads & the TI-100 flies perfect for me. If you tune your bow & use the right arrows you should be able to get your Muzzy's to fly good. I no longer worry about field tips & broadheads flying together. I just sight my bows in with broadheads & shoot broadheads year round. My hunting bow is for hunting & I want it to be exactly like it will be in the woods. I want to learn exactly how my arrows fly in all kinds of weather & wind conditions & field tips will not give you a true perspective on this aspect of arrow flight.

Im a huge fan of the Grim Reaper broadheads. They are mechanical but probably the best head i have ever shot. No rubberbands. They are spring operated. I shot a buck this year from a ground blind and it went through the shoulder knuckle, lungs, other shoulder knuckle, then about fourty yards and into a tree. Never seen a broadhead do that before and i'm only shooting about 260fps. You should give these a whirl. I was very impressed.
