Your center shot is probably off some.

cool thanks for that! but how is that posible? what is the cause of them going left?


Your arrows are coming off the rest a little "crooked" upon release. The broadhead blades pick up a lot more wind resistance, so they tend to "plane" and go off slightly in some other direction.

It's like putting your hand outside the window when you're driving down the road. If you keep your hand pointed straight into the wind, it stays straight. However, if you raise or lower your fingers, your hand will go up or down. Your arrow does the same thing.

All fixed blade broadheads will have a tendency to reveal this until you get the best tune possible on your bow. Some may be more prone than others, but all will do it to some degree. The good part is that once you get them grouping together, my experience has been that you can shoot just about any broadhead at that time.

That won't solve the problem.

With thunderheads I would also spin test them. I have over tightened them before and caused wobble.

Did you tune the arrows? Alot of folks will heat around the insert to loosen the glue, then use a broadhead tool and re-tighten. Sometimes your arrows are cut flush. Then spin test them. I've never had to go this far, but that's what I've always read to do.
