Re: Which broadhead for Tac15?

Just bought my first bow this fall. Because of a torn rotator cup I decided on the Tac 15i. I have installed all the recommended mods to increase accuracy. Shortened the Weaver Rail installed the HHA optimizer - Qua Drop Away arrow rest --Timney Trigger --Scope level. The bow is amazing at 60yards using standard Tac arrows with 100 grain T.Ps I can achieve 1 inch group. At 100 yard using those same 3 arrow always nocked the same way I can achieve a 3 inch group. However when I take those three arrows and spin on broad heads my accuracy is terrible. At 60 yards the recommended Phat Head 100's are 10in low and 10in to the right. Grim reapers another recommended broadhead are 10in low and 10in to the left. Even the ATOM by arrowdynamic solutions shoots 5in low and 3in to the left. I am tired of spending money on broadheads that clain TP accuracy however for me have not delivered. What am I doing wrong or are my expectations to high. Any suggesting greatly appreciated

Sorry for your frustration!

But -- try to change your approach a little I never care much how different is the point of impact between target points and hunting points. I feel one must practise separately with broadheads. The goal is to have a handful of broadhead arrows that group well with each other, regardless of how close they group with target tipped arrows.

Maybe someone could chime in here and talk about "sorting broadhead arrows".

My $0.02 - I'll go on record for having said this - you'll never find a fixed blade broadhead that shoots to the same point of aim as your field-points.

I don't care what the manufacturers say. Sorry manufacturers.
I've tried a whole bunch of them with a Tac15 (and other bows) tuned by me and tuned professionally and they do not shoot with field-points.

However, the Rocket Steelhead XL 100gr mechanical does.
They shoot with FP's just fine out to eighty yards.
I'm now on my 13th deer with this head and the Tac15.
That's 13 one-shot kills. Every one a passthrough.
Admittedly ranges were all inside 25 yards. (Two at 25 yards).
