I was getting about a 2" lower difference from my broadheads.My nock was about 1/4" high.I moved it down to about 1/8" high,and now they are hitting the same.I had to adjust my sight after I moved my nock point.I'm shooting RM titanium 100's.

If my broadhead doen't strip the feathers off the arrow with the field tip I retune until it does.

Its cheaper if you shoot the broadhead first.

Mine group in the same spot. If they don't then something is wrong.

What Sniper and bigbulls said. I like to able to shoot 1/2" to 1" three shotgroups at 25 yards with broadheads. It gets real ugly sometimes. Blades, feathers, carbon, nocks laying everywhere. Gives me an excuse to get some newer arrows.

Leverdude, Yes it can get expensive, but I don't use my practice or 3-D arrows for hunting. My hunting arrows stay in the quiver with the broadheads attached. They are for hunting only.
Good Hunting...

My broadheads shoot exactly the same as my field points. As a matter of fact, I do not shoot my field points anymore.

The difference is that the broad heads have sharp blades on them.[&:]
