  My brother bought his Grandson a Excalibur Exomag for Christmas I was ask to build him some arrows for his birthday that is coming up next month. 
  All are matched weight and have an FOC of 16%  .

  Just one more thing I really enjoy doing.

Good job for his Excalibur, you done good.
Quick question. You like the Blazers and get good flight? Refletched with them but noticed they wanted to consitently hit low and left of the broadheads by a few inchs. Went back to the 3" and they were on. Could have been foc or something but did notice a difference. Using 100 gr. heads so this might have caused it with the foc like mentioned.

I was using 3" Van-Tec before and they seemed to work very good.  I only went to the Blazers cause everyone was talking how good they were doing with them. Cannot say for sure if they made a difference.  I make arrow for my family and friends and always try and give the best I can. They buy the arrows and I fletch and weight them out for $1.00 each shaft. That pays for glue and fletching and paint. I get to have the fun of doing it.

 Jon with that Maypop you shoot just be glad the arrow can get to the target

Love you too Larry...in a non-gay way.

With my compound the Duravanes (same as Blazers but I like the base better, seems to be more flexible and adhere better imo) flew like Darts and do with most guys. I was using the Duravanes on my bolts till just couldn't get BH and FP to group the same. Now Emmet had his refletched to Blazers and don't think he's had any problem.

Broad head and Field point grouping the same so the sights don't need readjusted when switching from one to the other

Jon maybe you were having grouping problems because of your limbs.
 I shoot Wasp Jac-Hammers and Slick trick mags and have not had a problem with my groups yet.

Had me wondering that too at first Larry (from the first time) but then when swapped the vanes was no problem. Now I like to sight in at 40 yards to find by best adjustments and then go from there for the closer ranges I'll be shooting, find it helps you get dialed in better.
Bruce, like John says, it also helps by not having to use up broadheads, dull one up so have to buy more...know how cheap you are.

Thank's thought maybe there was something technical I had forgotten bout ....

So it's better to swap fletching and arrows than turn the scope adjustment dial?

By moving the scope adjustments you'll change the poi (point of impact) but if the BH and FP still weren't hitting the same then all you'd be doing is having them not hit the same but at a different place.
Now don't get me wrong it may only be a couple inches apart and alot of guys will just resight in for the broadheads and that isn't wrong but does make it so like said that you will then waste (dull) broadheads.
Depends too on the foc (front of center) as a higher foc will make the bolt point heavy therefore fly better (as opposed to the balancing point being more towards the middle of the arrow then the rear...vane end...will effect the flight by the rear of the arrow trying to come around). The Blazer type vanes while being shorter (2") also have a higher profile and with todays shorter broadheads tend to stabalize them well. Just sometimes doesn't work all the time for some people. Usually find on a compound the bow is either out of tune, shooter error like torquing the bow, or both or other ways, For me at this particular time a longer vane tended to stabalize my bolt more efficently.
All that said most people feel a crossbow HAS to be the same and can't do/have any of these problems. The compound type can have the cables stretch and put the cams out of time and cause some of this. Also both recurve and compound type crossbows may be cokced wrong and cause inconsistant flight. Very important to have the pull hooks againt the rail and pull straight up. If favor one side more when pulling or have one of the hooks out from the rail this can cause the string to be not at the same central point each time and cause some differences in impact points.

Hmmm, I'm at 21% foc 100 gr tips, 110 inserts, with Blazer vanes, lots of offset helix on em, I've got em back close to 1" from the nock, they are just under the scope mount so I don't think I can go back any farther. They shoot to good  

Getting a EZ Fletch Bolt soon with a gift certificate I got for Christmas from Bowhunters Superstore.

Think I meant lower foc, closer to the insert end. The helical think you got to watch out for as it may hit the rail, but know of a couple guys on AT that use it with no problelm. Usually have heard the 3% offset works good.

Yes, trouble.
