Default broadhead flight vs field tip

I use one pendulum pin sighted it for 26 yards. I have begun shooting my practice Montec G5 broadheads.

The vertical is perfect at 26 yards but the arrow is hitting about 1.5" to 2" right. I plan to just move my sight slightly to realign. I'm not going to change from the G5 broadheads.


Is this reasonable to have broadheads be off just a little compared to the field tips?

Depends on your personality [8D]

some people are not happy unless the hit together, some are fine as long as they group. I fall somewhre in the middle! I like them hitting together because when they don't it may be a bow tune issue. However there's only so much I let it drive me nuts.

This year it worked out great, they hit together with one small tweak. Last year no matter what I did I couldn't get them perfect so I adjusted the site since BH where grouping tight out to 50 yards.

Both my broadheads and field tips group about the same. The b/h's are usally just a tad lower. The only thing I really worry about is where the b/h's are hitting...

They don't shoot high or low just slightly right of target..

The amount its hitting to the right is something to be aware of, I would think it could be due to the blades, I like my b/h's and f/p's to hit the same. I would adjust your sight for the b/h's and leave it.

If it were me, I'd move the rest very slightly to the left. If the BHs and FPs hit together, you're all set. Then re-set sight pin as needed.

If you don't want to mess with it, just re-set the pin.

I think I'll try moving the arrowrest just a smidge and see how they shoot. I did just change to a QAD Pro drop-a-way about 6weeks ago.Thanks for the tip. I was going to move the pin but perhaps this the solution to bring both FT and BH a little close together.

Did as Uncle Norby suggested. I moved the rest about the thickness of a business card to the left and perfect for both BH and FT. Thanks Norby

Glad it worked. That is just typical broadhead tuning.
