    Just saw these on Easton website....WOW!!!!! I think these could be the best small game head idea yet, I like the concept of G5 but worry about accuracy at 30+, let alone the 60+ shots we often get and take on ground hogs. In the words of Will Smith....I gotta get me some of these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wicked lil' points!
    An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

    The G5 claw points are simply awesome, and the original Judo points are hard to beat in any kind of grass.

    My concern with G5 claw is overall durability is lacking and accuracy as I stated above. As for Judo points....woodchucks simply laugh at judo points as there dragging your arrow in there hole and you see them back out the next day.

    My G5sgh fly great out to 60 plus yard and never broke one yet
    I'd rather die on my feet then live on my knees.

    I came into this world kicking, screaming, and covered in somebody else's blood, and i have no problem going out that way.

    I doubt any "blunt" will crumple a woodchuck, they are perfect targets for old dull broadheads.

    The G5's have never broken on me (yet) and they fly perfectly for me. So do Judo points. But then I don't try to shoot woodchuck sized game with them. Rabbits are about as big as I would go with a not penetrating type head.

    The G5's will completely crumple a rabbit nearly instantly on some shots.

    $10/ head, that is ridiculous.
    If you are not prepared to loose every friend you have over a board game....... you aren't playing hard enough....

    Thats what I currently use...the cheapest expandables I can find, but have lost a few arrows due to pass thrus and some chucks hit to far back have made it down there holes with my arrows.

    Interesting. I wonder how they close back up after a few solid hits.

    I don't have a good experience with G5 : with a well tuned bow (2 field point + 1 NAP Nitron in a 2" group @ 65 yards) they are not very accurate. I was just able to stay in 5" @ 30 yards. And brackets are too hard treated, they breaks like glass when hitting pebbles in the ground.

    Judo are VERY accurate (fly like field point), very durable with devastating effect on rabbits, but the noise... OMG ! Difficult to use beyond 35 yards : rabbits leave before the arrow hit them (with a 70 lbs DXT @ 29").

    Easton V3 looks pretty cool, but beside that crazy price, mecanicals and soil didn't mix well together... if you miss. And if you don't miss... look closely at the video : you will see that it takes 3 to 4 inches for the head to fully expand. I seriously doubt it's quick enough to do the job on a rabbit.

    I'm still waiting for the "perfect" small game point, desperatly.

    In what sense is that ridiculous? A pack of average broad heads such as MX-3's are 30 bucks for 3 which equals 10 bucks a head. Why is this any different?

    Because you can get a far more damaging point for $2.50 that works better.

    Also, expecting $10 a broadhead is insane, but people will pay it hence the reason they sell them at the price -- despite not being worth anywhere near that.
