for the faster speeds.
With that said, this past deer season I successfully used Grim Reaper's Whitetail Special 2" Cut 3 Blade
with my TAC 15. In both cases, the distances were fairly short (~25 yards), thus any effect on accuracy by the Whitetail Specials would have been minimal.
Still, I have used the practice versions of Grim Reaper's Whitetail Special 2" Cut 3 Blade
out to 75 yards at the local gun range (the archery range is to short
) on non-matched arrows to hit a target in a 3" area.
Now this is just my opinion:
I believe the biggest issue facing TAC 15 shooters is not the arrow heads, but the matching of the arrow shafts: same shaft weight and shaft flex, along with the shaft flexing in the same direction with regard to knock and fletching.
I hope the above is of some help.
