I shoot the G5 strikers and they fly just as accurately as any mechanical I have tried. I think you would like them.

what weight are you using? do you know your arrow weight? bow draw weight? draw length/arrow length etc...?

You may want to try a few different styles, ie 3 blade, 4blad, 2 blade, if you've only tested 2 similar 3blade styles, may not be helpin ya much.

It's nice to have a BH fly like a fieldtip, but if not, just tune your setup for BH's, my muzzys use to fly 3-6" high I think at 30yds.

Can always give Rage 2 blades a try...

NAP razorbaks are pretty sweet too.
maybe give a 1 piece BH a try if you're set on fixed...such as a montec g3 etc...

yeah..my bow is tuned..no whip in the arrows whatsoever..i shoot a 31 and a half inch draw set on 67 pounds..ive been thinking about the rage 2 blade..i just dont know if i trust a mechanical..ive had some bad luck with them in the past..my buddy told me that he shoots the slicktricks and has had success with getting them to fly close to what his fieldpoints do.

I agree with GFY. If your bow is tuned it WILL shoot field tips and broadheads with the same impact point and accuracy.

Give slicktricks a try, I use 4 blade 100 gr. standard, they really shoot almost exactly like my field points. I have no complaints about them. They are as sharp as broadheads can be, I would know I sliced my finger tightening them on my arrow, had to get 5 stitches. It sliced my finger like butter.

Slicktricks, G5 Strikers (or the BP version, Blackouts I believe) Shuttle T's - all are about as close to field points as you can get.

Shuttle T-Locks are pretty awesome, beat out both the muzzies and montecs I shot previously. my 2 cents anyway
