I have to disagree with the article being useless. I gathered from it that if I add lighted nocks I MIGHT need to make a scope adjustment. That makes total sense. My Xbow is sighted in very well and I'm drilling the bullseye at 65 yards.
I shoot with the same grain field tip as I do broadhead.

Is that with broadheads or field points??

I use Firenock lighted nocks and there's less than an inch difference in POI vs POA at 40 yds when I use my regular non-lighted Firenock J nock.

This less than an inch difference means absolutely nothing...

It's basically common sense. Added weight would always require to re-sight in. If you go from 100 grains to 125 broadheads wouldn't you re-sight in your bow?

It may need resighted but not necessarily. I can substitute a 125gr Swhacker over a 100gr Spitfire on the same arrow and they hit almost same spot..

I think since the two heads are close to the same length it doesnt cause near as many problems due to the FOC being really close...

Now trying that with a much shorter head would cause a skewd FOC causing a accuracy problem between the two

I may be totally "full of duck mud" with my reasoning but I simply telling what I've observed...

Maybe at 20 yds but longer no way...

Actually even closer ranges you are not hitting the same spot with different weights. What you think is close is technically not accurately good enough

Extended ranges 40+ it's mathematically impossible for an arrow of different weights to hit the same target spot. Basic physics.

40 plus. I didnt shoot it 40 plus, I shot it to 30. If you'll re-read, I said almost, not same spot, but it was close enough to not cause me to re-sight..

Whether you believe it or not is irrelevant...

Not saying I don't believe you. If you consider close enough good so be it. Lol

Certainly I want better, and I do have better accuracy, but for you or anyone else to say it takes or believes it takes same hole accuracy to kill a deer is pure fallacy..

Inch to inch and half either high/low of any aimpoint means nothing in the vitals of a deer at 30. LOL

Your using a crossbow correct? They are deadly accurate and at very long ranges and a 50 yard shot is a chip shot. So an inch off at 20/30 yds is WAY off at longer ranges so now the vitals of a deer comes into play. I'm done with explaining that different arrow weights affect accuracy if not re-sighted in. Just hope you are ok with wounded animals. Good luck.

What part of 30 yds do you not understand? You may shoot out to 50 or more, but I dont. So therefore, 1 inch means nothing at 30 that Ive explained.

Have a good evening friend...
