Broadhead Tuning Tips
We often asked questions about how to effectively tune your Broadhead.¬† Here are some tips for you to consider for this upcoming season when it comes to tuning your fixed blade broadheads. First, think about the dynamics of a broadhead.¬† A broadhead that has greater blade surface area, the greater the steering ability that broadhead will have.¬† Thus, fixed blade broadheads with a large cutting diameter can be a bit more challenging to tune.¬† Even though a mechanical broadheads typically have fewer tuning issues than fixed blade heads, they still need to be properly aligned and their point of impact needs to be verified prior to hunting.
- Using an arrow spinner¬† place the point of the broadhead against a cardboard box. As you spin the arrow, the point will make a circle if it is not properly aligned. If the broadhead is properly aligned it will not appear to move and no additional steps are needed.
- If the point does make a circle, rotate the point to its uppermost point of movement and mark the box with a felt pen at that point.
- Rotate the arrow 180 degrees from that point and simply apply pressure to the point of the head on a hard surface. The goal of this is to push the broadhead into alignment with the insert.
- Put the arrow back on the spinner and check the head again for alignment. With a little trial and error you will soon become proficient and will be able to align a broadhead to the insert in under a minute. Keep in mind that shooting an arrow can cause misalignment, so it is a good idea to spin your broadhead tipped arrows repeatedly, particularly after shooting them.
