I put a set of 50# limbs on my Alien X a couple weeks ago. Just measured everything - did a straight limb swap - re-checked the measurements and everything was the same so I didn't re-tune or anything. Shot around 200 arrows thru it the past week and all seemed to be well.
Since it is the bow I am going to use for spring Turkeys, today, I thought I would put a couple broadheads on and see if they still impact the same.
So I go outside and set up at 25yds (my top pin) and put a broadhead in the target. Load a FP tipped arrow and:

So - guess I wont change the tune... :D

These have 4" Gateways on them.
I always end up back with feathers. Vanes seem to shoot better at long range for me but at 50 or less I shoot more consistant with 4" feathers on broadheads.
I just tried the Fusions and they work well and I have some SK-300's on the way that I really want to try out - but, I really do like 4" Feathers, Trueflight seem to be a little more consistant but Gateways work fine too.

That's a great shot, Scott! :) I hope the killed one wasn't your best arrow.

No - still sad about the arrow. Not so much it but the time to build another.
Cutting/fletching etc is pretty boring...

Yeah, I got to agree with you there, especially when there is a dozen or more arrows to be done.
