Default Tuning Broadheads??

I shot the 4 Blade Muzzy 125 broad heads. Today I shoot about 25 shots with field points and was hitting great. Then I got one of my broadheads and shoot it about 10 times at about 25 yards. When I first let go the arrow would fly straight for my target and about the last 10 yards it would flare left. It looks like a wind catches it and blows it left. The height is fine. I would appreciate any advice on what and how I can tune my broad heads to hit where my field points hit.

Skina is right, we need some more details. I shoot the Muzzy 100 grain 3-blade and when I first switched to them I had a similar problem, only it was to the right. Ended up being my form. I concentrated on keeping the wrist of my bow hand (hand holding the bow) straighter and with a properly tuned bow and properly spined arrow, my erratic flight problems went away. If I shoot a lot and get tired, they come back (i.e. bad form). Might want to think about that and have another experienced shooter watch you form once you get your bow tuned and are sure of your arrow spine.

YUP... it sounds like you're putting the horse before the cart, all your eggs in one basket, etc etc etc. You have to make sure everything is properly selected and tuned first. Secondly, you have to make sure everything is tuned right. Oh, did I mention tuning?

Then when you have that arrow tuned, do it a half dozen more times. DO not put all your trust and tuning into ONE arrow. If it's bad you can really become frustrated. I suspect it's possibably some for stuff, but more than likely it's some of all the above. OH,... don't forget to tune those arrows.
