These are general recommendations. Every setup is different so please test for yourself and discover what works best for you. ANNIHILATORS SHOULD BE THE MOST ACCURATE BROADHEAD YOU HAVE EVER SHOT! If that is not your experience, reach out to us so we can get you more specific help!
– Every archer should walk back / french tune their rest before shooting broadheads. Paper tuning is only a start. Bare shaft tuning is an excellent next step (start at 10 yards then go to 20). Then walk back tune assuming you have your marks. If you are unfamiliar with walk back tuning, there are tons of videos available to you as a resource which can be found with a quick Google or Youtube search. It takes 15 minutes and will ensure your broadheads are flying excellent for you left and right out to long-range.
– Annihilator XLs will be slightly more forgiving with shot placements due to the larger cut diameter. They do produce larger holes in animals than the standard size Annihilators. However, XLs may require some tinkering with vanes if your arrow speeds are less than 285 ft/s. If you experience any drop, simply try moving your vanes back towards the nock a bit to adjust the center of pressure on the arrow. You can also try lighter-weight vanes in a 3 fletch and / or 3 inch long or 1/2 inch or taller vanes to generate more lift in the back to match the lift generated in the front by the larger surface area of that broadhead.
– Standard size Annihilators should not require much if any broadhead tuning and can be shot with smaller lower profile vanes. On average they will penetrate deeper into ballistic gel by an inch or less compared to the XL.
– If you are on the fence about which Annihilator to shoot, the vast majority of Annihilator customers shoot our standard size 100-grain broadhead which means the vast majority of reviews you may have read or photos you have seen regarding our heads are most likely from experience with our standard size heads.
– Crossbow and traditional bow shooters should consider higher FOC options like 125-grain heads or heavier OR add more point weight with heavier inserts.
– For every shooter, we recommend a total point weight of 150 grains or higher or 13% or higher including the point and insert/outsert so that your arrow flies closer to a true ballistic trajectory so it has increased penetration efficiency as it enters an animal and better stability in flight… this is our recommendation no matter which broadhead you shoot.
