Ive been so frustrated with my bow i just gotta rant. I bought a martin firecat prox last year, put a set of cobra sights on it, it had a whiskerbisquet on it already. So i get it shooting great worh fp's but go to shoot my broadheads and there off BAD!! I cant adjust my sights any more im hitting low at 20 yards im scared to try any farther with it. Ive tried fixedblade muzzys and grim reapers to no avail. Im at my wits end i know next to nothing about bows and noone i know can seem to point me in the right direction. I guess im threw with messing with it if i cant get it fixed soon. Ok rant mode off. If anyone can give me some advice on what to do id appreciate it, ive gota spot loaded with deer and am only aloud to bow hunt it and hate to pass up the chance.

Move your rest not your sights if the field points are hitting correctly

Take it to the shop and get it paper tuned plus have youre string looked at if its not new and make sure the screws in the limbers were adjusted right whe. The poundage was set having one screw backed out way furthere then the other will cuase the problem next check all screws in the rest and sights to make sufe there tight sound like you need to be paper turned

Could be many things, best you just hang it up. The bow itself maybe so bad it will never shoot a straight arrow.

No offense but this is why people shouldn't wait til a week or so before deer season to pick up there bows or shoot broadheads.

You could have soooooo many things wrong: nock height, rest height, center-shot off, cam timing issues, tiller off, etc.... take the thing to someone that has a clue about what their doing with a bow and get it looked at! I'm glad you acknowledged Rick's point about waiting to the last minute. Archery is something that takes time, patience and a boat load of practice to obtain a level proficency—that is why many of us shoot year around and 3D tourneys as well.
