It seems to me that those adjustments might bring the broadheads onto target, but wouldn't the practice tips then be high and right?
The way I understand it, when everything is in tune both heads will shoot to the same place. When a bow is out of tune, broadheads will react more because the larger surface area of the head will react more with the air in flight.

I can guarantee you my bow's in tune. I'm more confident of that right now....than I've ever been.

I can also tell you .....when you get out beyond 20yds....my BH's impact lower than my FP's. Not left or right......just lower.

Of course there is more drag,planing,friction and everything else associated with broadheads but out of normal compounds shooting at normal bowhunting distances(less than 40 yards)there shouldn't be a noticeable difference in impact when everything is perfect.Heck,my son's bow shoots 2 blade Magnus Stingers with fieldpoints out to 25 yards the same.Atleast in his groups.I screwed his magnus on mine a couple weeks ago and I couldn't tell a difference at 40.

I shot out to 40 today and didn't notice any difference at 40 in my up and down,with 3 blade wasp hammer sst's.However,I wasn't shooting my best today.

I'm shooting 171fps (1' in front of my bow), TFOX.

My guess is......I'm gonna notice the additional "drag" more than most.

Easy fix. I just won't shoot FP's nearly as much.

That's what my son shoots,BUT he has a loop and a release which allows for a straighter release.He is also using a small 2 blade.
