For the greatest accuracy, make sure arrow points are aligned properly with the arrow shaft. This is critical with all styles of broadheads. Check all broadheads for alignment before shooting at an animal.

Arrows shaft inserts also must be properly aligned. Arrow shafts with a broadhead attached can be "spun" and observed from the point end for "wobble." Simply place an arrow on a desk or counter with the broadhead extended over the edge and roll it across the surface. If the shaft appears to wobble rather than spin freely, check the alignment of the shaft's aluminum or carbon-fiber insert. It must be aligned exactly in the center of the shaft, or the arrow will not spin smoothly.
