With my current hunting setup I can shoot out to 65yards and hold 2" groups or less with broadheads and usually stack my field tips together. no exaggeration.....


WOW!!! Unbelievable.

Our Olympic archery team could use talented people like you.

One thing I might add to your tuning tips: When bareshaft tuning NEVER USE broadheads. A potentially dangerous act.

Additional tuning tips can be found on ArcheryTalk.Com and Bowsite.Com. Some real tuning guru's hang out there.

I am shooting 100 steel force phatheads, group very well for me out of a 305 fps set up, I have shot about a dozen different blades. My hunting set up is only broadheads # and tested all, IF IT DOESNT group it wont make it in the quiver

We cant use expandable broadheads in Oregon, but I tried everything from the cheapo Bi-mart specials, tothe spendy Muzzy 3 and 4 blades. Not 1 even came close to the SHUTTLE-T LOCK! Those broadheads shoot like my field points almost identicle.

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

Howdy, one that I have been using is what was the rocky mountain gator from basspro now they are the redhead gator. I Have harvested a mule deer at 92 and antelope at 94 and 42 and plenty of whitetails at closer range they shoot the same as the feild points and leave a massive wound channel. Critters never travel far after one of these thru the boiler room. Now on sale at bass pro for 19.95 for three I bought 20 packages last year because there was talk that the were being discontinued but I see this year redhead has taken over the gator name and they look exactly the same so hopefully they bought the patent rights and will keep them in production.

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

Slick trick broadheads, are easily the best shooting fixed blade broadhead for accuracy and they leave blood trails you can drive a truck down! After tuning broadheads in a proshop for the last 4 years, these have been the most consistent and easiest to tune out of a variety of setups! One of the major factors in this is the shortness of the head! It doesn't change the FOC of the arrow the way longer heads do! Shuttle T heads are great as well, however the lack of wents in the blade do cause them to plane a little bit due to catching more air! Out of a well tuned bow the Shuttle T's are fantastic and choot incredibly well. Slick Tricks take less tuning for and are more forgiving than any fixed blade out there!

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

Thus far I have had the best luck with NAP Spitfire XP 100gr.
No failed openings. No broken blades. Devastating wound channels.
I have seen a rib cut into, like a laser beam slit it.
All hits have passed all the way through deer, and stuck in the ground.

Arrows with the Spitfires fly true, like field points.

I have tested the NAP Spitfire XP for durability against other quality mechanical broadheads against racks of beef ribs, and found them to be the most durable.
