Re: Broadheads- Mech. VS Fixed
Carbon arrows are straight on the outside but not on the inside. The hole is not down the center of the shaft. If you spend a few hundred dollars per dozen I think this may not be as big a problem. Non the less, aluminum is a much more forgiving shaft.
Archery is much like rifles. If you run a heavy aluminum arrow with a heavy broadhead, you will have a better chance at repeatable accuracy. every body wants to hunt at over 300fps. Quit worrying about the speed. Get the yardage right. This is my philosophy.
Heaviest aluminum shaft that has the proper spline, per the chart, for your draw, cam style, and draw weight. Run over 10% front of center for the broadhead. This should put you into the 125g class broadhead. Find a one piece two or three blade broad head, I like the two blade, easier to tune. The longer the broadhead the better. 1" diameter by 2" or more blade length will usually plane less.
Just don't sacrifice accuracy for the speed.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
