My field points group with my broadheads. I feel that the bow is tuned. However , the wind seems to wreak havoc on my broadheads. My arrows are factory fletched with blazers which are just slightly offset, but for the most part straight. If I refletch them with more offset thus spinning better and making them stabilize more effectively, will this make my broadheads less susceptible to wind drift? Also is a more stable arrow any more forgiving of any flaws in my form/shot execution? I think I shoot the bow well, but I feel like it could be more forgiving in less than ideal conditions. Any thoughts or input?

FOBS are supposed to be great in high wind. Check them out if you hunt in high wind.

2nd the FOBs. Definitely reduces wind drift. Something you can see for yourself in a side by side test.

I appreciate the responses so far, and I mean no offense, but a pitch for FOBS doesn't really answer my question. I am actually interested in the Bohning helix jig, and wonder what sort of difference it may or may not make.

Your results will vary depending on the type of broadhead you shoot. The helical fletch should help out a bit, but I believe there is a point of diminishing returns.

Well, the posters so far are correect in what they are telling you...but if FOB's are not for you...
then I would experiement with different BH's...
some plane some don't.
In high wind the Atoms and G5 Strikers fly real well.

For those of you who have used the Bohning helix jig, do you see a marked improvement in your broadhead flight?
