RE: thinking about switing to fixed broadheads.

Personally, I like 125gr Thunderheads too. I have never had one fail. They can be a bit hard to tune out of fast rigs. Muzzys are also a good choice.

You could be torqing the bow some due to fatigue. Or, your rest or sight could have become loose. Check your screws, and take a day off and see what happens.
