I am new to archery for this season. I was told by someone that I need to allign my broadhead points with my fletching in order for the arrow to fly right. Is this so or does it matter where my broadheads are alligned as long as they are tight? Also, what is everyone's favorite broadheads?

No need to.

Before epoxy glue and when I was using hot melt you could. I was anal and did just because they all would be lined up the same just in case it helped.

My thoughts

If tip of broadhead is not perfectly align you wont get good flight. Sqaure the aluminum insert flat on the end. Often its not the broadhead but the insert.

The Montec G5 squaring tool really works great for sqauring inserts.

Wasp SST Broadheads work well

Montecs are good heads. Have to re sharpen them

Im shooting the Grim Reapers this year.

Slicktricks and sonics fly very well for me. Haven't seen what kind of damage they do yet.

This only works on aluminum arrows that use hot glue...If you are shooting carbons with epoxy then it's nearly impossible...The main concern is that the insert are all inserted the same...Use a good proshop to buy your arrows from and you should be set...

Shoot Muzzy's myself, but any b-head will kill a deer...

Aligning blades to the fletchings means absolutely NOTHING. It's a wives tale.
YEP but do check insert /broadhead alignment. Make a spin tester board works wonders.
