so right now im shooting a 40 # recurve and ive settled on beman 500s with 75 gr inserts and 150 heads. to the eye they seem to fly well but they seem to still stick slightly to the left out of the target. whats one do to correct this? also just to be sure with 2 blade heads do you want the blades perpendicular to the cock feather to reduce planning?

As for tuning and how to correct it, check this:

and this:

As for broadhead orientation there is hardly much of a consensus. It seems most will say that it shouldn't matter, IF state of tune is correct. But there have been some who hold that a two blade should be mounted horizontal, so that the broadhead doesn't try to begin planing to left or right as the arrow exits the bow.

Since the arrow does begin flex upon release, and then oscillates as it flies down range, AND arrow spin up from the fletching doesn't happen for several yards after the arrow has left the bow, then it strikes me that horizontal is the "best" bet and is how I do it.

But that all is of course based upon the idea that there is a "shootable" difference to begin with. I certainly haven't ever seen any data to back it up though.
