Re: PSE TAC 15/15i crossbows and broadhead accuracy tips

Alan, good to hear from you and that you are having fun with it.

I haven't tried any mechanical because the Phathead worked right away.

I'm sure some of the good ones will fly well. I have been wondering, though, how well they will hold up to the repeated shooting into denser broadhead targets (and removal) necessary to work out drop tables and broadhead arrow sorting needs.

Please let me know.

    What target are you using for broadheads?

    Thanks

    Proper cleaning of either alloy or carbon composite shafts is mandatory prior to fletching with plastic vanes or natural feathers. White Ivory soap and hot water scrubbed onto the shaft with a new sponge and then wiping with a clean paper towel in one direction, one time and then air drying for ten minutes will produce a clean, oil-free shaft ready for the gluing process.

    A small drop fletching glue applied to the leading end of the base of the vane is standard procedure after the vane has been glued to the shaft. I set a kitchen timer for ten minutes setting time for each vane glued while in the clamp. Twelve hours at 72 degrees F curing time will produce a bond that only a razor blade will remove. Cooler room temperatures will require a longer curing duration.

    Depending on the vane selected, some bases of the vanes are treated with a primer and as such have a finite shelf life. I have found Bohnig’s Blazer vanes have been both durable and extremely accurate. They also stabilize my largish fixed blade broadheads as well as my field points.

    Bohnig’s FletchTite Platinum glue has produced excellent results on all shaft materials I have used.

    I would also suggest the Bitzenberger fletching clamp tool as there is none finer on the market…the benchmark against which all others are judged.

    Remember, after cleaning, touching the shaft or the vane’s base is verboten.

    Numbering shafts is critical to sorting. Verifying both ends of the shaft are square is critical as well. Try placing your arrows point down on a hard surface and spinning them.
    Wobbling equals poor flight. If you can see it, it will make a difference, particularly at extended range.

    I just purchased a pse tac 15i, what broadhead head should be used. I saw comments on the atom heads.
    I need information type and weight.
    thanks
