What weight BH are you planning to use? I would recommend buying field tips in the same weight. Do all your tuning with the field tips, including bare shaft tuning. Once you are confirmed that arrow and spine work the field points put on the Broad heads and spin test them to make sure they are on straight, then go shoot them and look at the group differences (hopefully none) between the field tips and the Broad heads. Don't bareshaft broad heads.

A high anchor is better. The longer the crawl the more problems. I go for an arrow 1.5" longer than my draw. Good FOC helps ALOT. With the longer arrow and a high anchor I usually have around a 5/8" to 3/4" crawl to put me point on at 18 yards.

I have had enough problems with real light arrow and broad heads I stay around 10 gpp.

Lets us know how it turns out.

BTW. I put a small nock at that point as a fixed crawl and gap the point from there. So really I hunt with a fixed crawl. I don't have to worry about BH flight at any other crawl.

I souls have a different arrow length for say elk hunting where I might get a 35 yard shot. So I would want a point on crawl for 25 yards. I would gap the point from there.

Let us how the tuning goes. I have shot lighter arrows in 3D. They worked well with the glue in target points.

Maybe the arrows will fly better from a heavier draw bow. I am shooting very light draw bows because of shoulder issues.
