    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    That's awesome haha. Thanks for your 2 cents man. I will most definitely look into these SEVR broadheads, they look promising for a mechanical. The Titanium TIP just looks sinister and looks like it would penetrate well.

    With those kind of speeds no wonder it went right through those suckers lol. Hey that works for your setup but with me being 27" draw length I don't have many options for blowing through animals unless it s fixed blade. The only reason I have my skeptics with swhacker is because I shot a coues in the shoulder blade with one and it didn't do a dam thing to him. Granted with your setup getting 325 FPS; you can blow through anything with ease.

    Hello bojangles, I agree with you 100%. Accuracy is the most important aspect when it comes to hunting. It's imperative to be able to put that broadhead where it needs to go. But in my experience, fixed blades do have a definite plus in the penetration department. All animals I've shot with a fixed blade have died immediately with all shots completely pass through the animal with ease. I currently shoot a swhacker and well.... Can't say the same about them. If you hit bone its not gonna be good.... SEVR on the other hand might be something to look into; in my eyes. The way it's designed I absolutely know it will get WAY more penetration than a Swhacker. Thanks for the info though I do understand where you're coming from.

    That's awesome! Thank you for the info. Please feel free to report how these vortex broadheads shoot for you.

    Very intriguing👌🏼 Now that’s something that’s worth a try. I will be purchasing a pair of each to see how they hold up at longer ranges. Thank you for for being helpful.

    I literally just purchased a pack of slick trick standards the other day because I've heard amazing things from them. I will be testing those bad boys out soon.

    Hey Creed_AZ_88, Just cuz its streamline mechanical doesnt mean it will shoot lol.. I have shot a handful of mechanicals that are in the same boat as the fixed blade for poor accuracy. What's a broadhead that you have had good success with as far as mechanicals for long range accuracy?

    Nice Forepaw! I will definitely be giving those heads a try. Thank you.

    Understood WHT_MTNMAN but examples of broadheads that fit your description would be much appreciated.... Given from what you explained here which makes sense but doesn't help me with the situation because you didn't suggest a broadhead lol... The forces of gravity acting upon both broadheads and field tips are the same; IFFFF in fact they're both exactly the same weight. Where they differ is in the friction coefficients. As you're aware the "field tip" and "broadhead" are much different when traveling through air; more drag acting on the broadhead rather than the field tip which doesn't necessarily mean that your broadhead will always shoot low... It can shoot high, low, left and right at those distances all depends on what the arrow is doing in flight through the medium, in this case "air" acting on the broadhead. I do however appreciate you explaining how to counteract this by changing tune slighty... I did however know of this and have done it but its changing my arrow/bow setup lol trying to see if there really is a broadhead aerodynamic enough to do just that.. What do you shoot? As for mechanical's I have two in my inventory that will hit on the money out to 120 without me tampering my sight/rest at all or adding weight in the back to stabilize.
  12. Hello CouesWhitetail Members, I hope everyone has been doing well during these tough times. I've been practicing a lot of 3-D archery shooting lately and I have built up a setup to effectively shoot out to 120 yards and hitting vitals on demand. I have been able to achieve this type of accuracy thorugh paper tuning my bow and ensuring my arrows are perfectly tuned. Given that my bow/arrows/field points are dialed in using these two conventional methods "paper tuning" and "arrow tuning" i.e. squaring arrow/nock, spin testing etc. I've been testing to see which current fixed broadheads on the market actually fly and are accurate identical to a field point. So far I have bought/tested the QAD EXODUS, Ramcat hydroshock, ramcat diamondback, Trophy Taker ATAC, Trophy Taker Shuttle T, G5 Montec M3, Tooth of the Arrow. All in all the best performer by far which shot closest to the field point was the Trophy Taker ATAC but its not sharp which was a huge bummer. It was virtually identical to field point as far as windage but shot little low in elevation. I did adjust my rest to compensate for this drop and proceeded to shoot with extreme accuracy; I understand that this is a good thing but remember I'm looking for something that will I simply swap my field point with and will hit the target on demand. The Ramcat Diamondback finished second but required much tuning. Once dialed in I was able to get extreme accuracy as well. The Exodus came in third place but required much more tuning to get the head to fly correctly; once dialed in it could reliably hit vitals out to 80 then it started to be more inconsistent at 90 yards. The same could be said for the rest of the arrows in the list but all required to be tuned a little different. So my question to you guys is have you found a broadhead on the market that will literally give you field point flight/accuracy with a tuned setup no matter what distance. I have found expandable broadheads to achieve this but I have yet to achieve this with a fixed broadhead. Please note that I'm aware that form is a tremendous factor when it comes to shooting fixed broadheads and I know that.... Please don't bring this aspect into the conversation lol. Soon to test broadheads will be Slick Trick Standards, Strickland Helix and well any suggestions that you folks have from experience. Sincerely, Coues Archer

    Never found him! I checked for 3 days strait with no success. I never even saw buzzards or coyotes eating anything. 90% he didn’t die.
