Default Tuning Crimson Talons

Does anyone know how to tune the Crimson Talons? I have tried and it seems like they shoot about 6 inches low. I thought that was a little much...should I move my sights? It also kinda seems like they fishtail at first after I shoot them. Whats up with that?

Sounds like your bows not as well tuned as it could be, which fixed blade broadheads are really good at pointing out

The best way to tune a Crimson Talon is to remove them from your arrows, throw them in the garbage can and go buy a reliable head that will penetrate and hold together. But hey, that's just my opinion and that of several hundred thousand bowhunters.

LOL!! Sadly though the truth! However, this sounds like a tuning issue. You need to lower your nocking point, completely tuning your bow would be the best thing you could do. Follow 5 shots link, and you'll be fine.

I remember reading that you didn't need to tune your bow with the Crimson Talons.
