Just wondering how some of y'all balance your Broadheads. I just spin my arrows tipped with thunderheads on my hand and feel for wobble. If there is a little vibration I turn my Broadheads in bout 1/16" increments and repeat the spin until I can't feel the arrow spinning. This seems to make a big difference for me with broadhead flight. I usually have to repeat the process over again cause my quiver will usually twist the broadhead a little and cause some wobble again. Maybe I'm just being too nit picky. People always ask me what I'm doing when they watch me do this.

I put the arrow on a smooth surface and spin while checking for balance. I know other people say differently but, Unless I have a spine that's out of place I've always been successful at heating the glue of the insert and turning my 3 bladed muzzie to line up with the forward section of the fletching. Works for me anyway.

What you described is a good method. I've yet to find a Slick Trick that wobbled. The steel ferrule is machined to tight tolerances.
