Most fixed blade heads(and some mechanicals) will fly differently than field points. The reason is, there is more surface area which causes them to "plane", or catch the wind, and that effects their flight, typicaly, the bigger the head, the more wind plane youll get. I think this problem is amplifid by any "tuning" issues you may have with your set up. You may want to visit your local pro shop, and have them give your rig the 'once over' just to see if any adjustments are needed.
Very good points! Oh and dont worry, not everyone here shoots a bisquit. Myself, I shoot a QAD ultra pro series, and I love it! One thing you didnt mention (that may help) is a helical fletching.ORIGINAL: Jawbone
Having your bow tuned at a pro shop may get you close but unless your there with them to shoot your bow they can never adjust for how you grip, hold, aim, and release. All these little things are different person to person. I suggest you watch and learn as they go through the process and know your equipment inside and out. You never now when something may go wrong on a hunt and there's nobody to help you. Joining a local archery club is a good way to to do this. As far as your arrow flight problem, longer fletching may be needed to help stabellize your arrow. 4" should do with proper tuning. You could also switch to a good expandable which will fly very similar to if not exactly as your field points. I'm not gonna make any friends with this comment but I suggest a drop away rest as apposed to a whisker buiscet for the simple fact that less contact with the arrow ='s better flight. I used to work in a pro shop and have been shooting archery for 20 years both competetively and for hunting. Hope this heps and good luck!!!
