      Just a wingnut placed backwards in back of a fields tip. They weight about 85 grains. adjust your field tip weight accordingly.

      You can skip the field point and use an 8-32 flathead screw to use as a blunt. just add 8-32 nuts on the screw in front of the wingnut to increase weight.

      Have you tried to sharpen the ears on the wing nut? I am thinking I can get my ACE hex head up to 300 grains to match my Tuff heads.

      No,I haven’t tried sharpening the ears, but I have tried putting the bottoms to a grinder to take off material to lower weight. ie: wingnuts weigh 85 grains, used 85 grain field tips.(170 grain total) Ground bottom of wingnut so that entire weight of both is 150 grains to match normal field tip weight.

      Great idea: simple, cheap, doable!
