Ummmmm can we have the bow so we can inspect how in tune it is? I mean with any broadhead they wont fly correctly unless your bow is tuned properly. To blame this on the broadhead is unfair, because it could actually be the bow. Now I'm not saying it IS, but its possible.

Check and see if your bow is properly tuned then go back and try the head.

BTW, switching from a 75 grain tip to a 100 grain tip makes a bigger difference than you would think.

That's a joke, right? Don't tell me you've never seen the movie "Predator".

On another note, don't you just love the way every Rage thread turns ugly in a hurry? They're always entertaining.

One post does bring to mind a question, though. I shoot Grim Reapers, and I have to ask how the heck would one go about "tuning" a mechanical broadhead??????

Really? You haven't seen Predator? You're missing out. Awesome movie.

Also, I believe that the idea behind using the "Predator" as an avatar would be, well..., self evident, but I can understand the confusion if you haven't seen it.

Seems to me that the broadhead did its job. Dropped the doe in her tracks and from what you described its reusable. Shot placement is usualy shooter error, specialy in a hunting situation.
