Thread: Broadhead alignment

    Broadhead alignment

    When you place the cock feather up as in some drop away rests do you have to change the alignment of a three bladed broadhead as one blade will be pointing directly up instead of directly away from the bow when the arrow is cock feather out. what is the best alignment for the broadhead?

    no you do not have to line the blades up that is just a myth that was started way back in the day of archery I shoot a 3 fletched arrow and a 4 blade broadhead and I know some archers that shoot a 4 fletched arrow and a 3 blade broadhead just make sure your broadhead is straight to your arrow shaft which I mean that there is no wobble to your broadhead when you spin the arrow,I use an arrow straightner to make sure my broadheads are straight.

    If it makes you feel good then do it. I don't think it does anything. Just make sure from arrow to arrow they are close to being the same.

    My personal opinion is that although the blades do NOT have to align with the fletchings, the alignment of the broadhead on the shelf has an effect with flight. I personally like my 3 blade heads to begin their flight with one blade up.

    It is sure worth giving it a try and seeing if it makes a difference for your set up. It is not hard to do...with a few different arrows and a few different broadheads, a couple of them are going to line up just right. Shoot those at some longer distances, and compare them with the ones that did not line up. If it makes a difference, then do them all that way by re-gluing the insert.

    In my opinion you are thinking too much. If your bow is broadhead tuned this should not matter. There is a difference between papertuning vs group or broadhead tuning.
