The truth is no broadhead flies like a field point but some are better than others and more forgiving.A broadhead will always be more prone to wind planing and flying off course due to torque or other variables like wind.

The key is to tune your bow and arrow combo so that MOST broadheads will impact with FP's when conditions are perfect so that when they are not perfect,you still have a better than average chance of making a quality shot on game.


Generaly speaking,smaller cut heads and shorter profiles along with mechanicals will be the closest to a field point.

thats a good question.....per rages website :

RAGE’s streamlined 3/4" dia., along with its HexFlat™ design, make it fly like a field-tip. The machined aircraft aluminum body features HexFlat™ design for stable flight, with a stainless steel instant-cut tip. The cam-deployed rear blades follow the tip without grabbing or deflecting, even on an angled hit, and are guaranteed to deploy before entry, maintaining full kinetic energy.

nearly all manufacturers claim they fly like fielpoints. And they typically will, IF the bow is tuned properly. A poorly tuned bow will even fling mechanicals off coarse.

I'm pretty new to bowhunting, been shooting for a few years now. Anyways, I can say that Spitfires have shot well for me. That's just one suggestion.

Depends on how your bow is tuned.

People often blame the broad heads when the fact is most will fly well. The larger the head the more air it will catch and therefor must be tuned properly. So either tune the bow or use a low profile head so you can get away with an untuned arrow.

Like others have said, if your bow is tuned right, then any one should. That being said, I have had the best experience with G5 Strykers and slick tricks. As well as my bow is tuned, I still cant get Muzzys to fly right.
