So your bow’s pins are on. Does this mean your bow is super tuned? Not necessarily. A field point allows an arrow to correct itself in flight quickly and once corrected, bows shooting field points can be fairly accurate. But what happens when a broadhead is attached?
Many hunters have noticed that they have to adjust their sights for the broadheads they are shooting. Why is this? This is because the the bow may not be tuned and the arrow may not be flying as straight as it could be when it leaves the bow. Broadheads, even mechanical, catch the wind more than a field point. This slows down the arrows ability to correct itself. Depending on how the arrow leaves the bow, the arrow may still be porpoising or fishtailing when it hits its target. When an arrow’s nock end is out of line with the broadhead at the point of impact, valuable kinetic energy “twangs” out of the arrow as it fights to penetrate the animal. This is why some hunters just cant seem to get a pass through even with today’s bows. Your arrow needs to be flying perfect for maximum passthrough potential.
How do we fix this? Tune your bow according to our bow tuning timeline. After properly setting up your bow, paper tuning, walback tuning, etc. you won’t be able to blame your bow this season!
