Speed vs Broadheads

I was told today that since I am shooting around 290fps that I should not shoot a fixed blade Broadhead. Is this true? Please help! Thank you.

Your source of information either does not want to help you learn proper form and bow tuning, or you need to find a better source. :mad:

This is the same type of crap that I heard when bows started shooiting over 250 fps (you can't shoot broadheads at that speed), and when bows started shooting over 200 fps, and ........... :mad: :mad:

For the last couple of years I have been shooting broadheads at 295 and 302 fps respectively. Both bows digested Beman Hunter 340 arrows at 70 #, 29" arrows, 4" plastic fletch, and fixed broadheads (Muzzy 100 Gr, Interlock 100 Gr, Steelforce 100 Gr Titanium and SS Premiums). I need to shoot at different spots so I don't destroy my arrows. :)

Learn proper form, tune your bow, and go with a quality fixed blade broadhead if you so desire.

I'm shooting my Magnus, 100 gr, 4 blade "Stingers" at 297 fps. I have no flight problems out to 80 yards. Haven't tried to shoot farther.

I think that 80 yards should tell us if your too fast, I guess they forgot to tell your bow that fixed broadheads could not fly at the speed too. :p :D

False My uncle shoots in the 290's used muzzy 125 and thunderheads 125. Make sure their one straight with the shaft. Off just a little and good luck getting them all to hit the same spot.
False? What is false about it? :confused: Your uncle just doesn't have the proper form, or he needs to work on bow tuning.

Too many of us do it at 290+ fps and have great arrow flight for that to be a falsehood. I heard the same crap when bows went over.... well I already told you so believe what you want to.

I do agree that broadhead alignment is part of the tuning process though. :)

I believe he was saying that its false that you cant use broadheads over 290 fps.

Otherwise, he wouldnt have backed it up with evidence that supports that they work.
