  1. Video - Broadhead Tuning Tips

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Before we get started, this not a complete tuning breakdown. Others will surely have different methods than I use. This is just what I do to get my bows tuned for broadheads. I had a plan this year to take the winner of the ArcheryTalk 2020 Hunting Bow Shootout into the woods with me this year...

  3. 2018 React Correct Shim

    PSE Archery Discussion
    I bought a 2018 React here on AT and am going through and tuning the bow (btw I am liking the bow so far). My question is what are the correct shims for top and bottom axles? Here is how I came to this scenario. I was having a bare shaft nock right tear, so I adjusted the shims to three thin...
  4. Intentionally difficult to tune broadheads?

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been gearing up to pick some broadheads for my new setup and looking at those that I assume will "fly like a field point" (like a Ramcat). However, the more I read about broadhead tuning it seems to me that I should also purchase a set of broadheads that that don't look like they'll fly...
  5. NAP Spitfire MAXX

    Broadhead Discussion
    Does anyone know which practice blades fit the NAP Spitfire MAXX 100-gr.? Their website lists the 100/125 practice blades (model 60-238) under the standard Spitfire. And, there's no practice blade listed under the MAXX. I'm wondering if these practice blades fit the MAXX because it has a...
  6. Helical/offset Broadhead?

    General Archery Discussion
    I've done some digging and can't find anything on a helical or offset broadhead. It seems generally accepted that for a 70# hunting rig with fixed blade broadheads that helical or offset vanes are the way to go and my experience matches. In listening to a mechanical vs fixed debate it was said...

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Looking for experienced opinions on the Innerloc Carbon Tuner broadheads (both tuning experience, and field performance on whitetail). I will probably be shooting them on Maxima Red 350's. Haven't dropped the coin on arrows or the broadheads yet. Shooting a Destroyer 350, 29" DL, 65lb...

  9. Which tuning methods do you use?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Okay, so we have paper tuning, bareshaft tuning, walkback tuning, broadhead tuning, radio tuning, etc. Do you just use whichever one it takes to get you shooting tight groups? Do you use them all? If so, do you have a specific order that you crank up the tunes? I'm just trying to figure out...
  10. Bow Tuning

    General Archery Discussion
    Need some opinions from those who know more than me: Do you guys think that if you tune a bow correctly that all broadheads should fly the same or that you have to tune the bow to match your broadhead? I'm split I keep reading on both sides. And if so what are your tips to broadhead tuning your...
  11. Broadhead tuning headaches

    Bow Tuning
    Yesterday, after 4 hours of non-stop shooting my 65 lbs compound bow, trying to broadhead tune it, I realized 1- My arrows are underspined, even though they are according to the arrow manufacturers specs. (except for Carbon Express) 2- Mechanical broadheads don't necessarily fly like field...

  18. Walkback tuning VS Broadhead tuning..

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    If you walkback tune your bow and adjust the rest until all is centered then when you broadhead tune you are moving your rest even more. So should you do one or the other or am I missing something?
