    sorry for this but i need help guys.

    Alright i know that theres so much info on this but i just cant make up my mind and its eating me up. I shoot magnus broadheads (not changing) and i shoot the stingers. i was thinking about trying the snuffer ss this year but i cant make up my mind. i like the stinger 4 blade. they fly awesome and are easy to sharpen. i dont have a sharping stone and i dont want to buy one. im not made of money yet im still in school. what do you guys like to shoot better and for what reason the snuffer ss or the stingers. please everybody who shot one of these or has info let me know. after this im going to pick one...




    Thanks Don

    If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.

    If you like the stingers and they fly great out of your bow, why change. Honestly, you won't notice a difference in lethality between the two. The stingers will kill any animal in the world.

    My favorite from Magnus is a 2blade buzzcut. I'm just a fan over a 2blade over anything else.

    I like both, but I would stick with the stingers since you already have them. Use the money you were gonna spend on a dmt diamond sharpening stone. Trust me, it would be an extremely worthwhile investment.

    i have a knife sharpner that works real good. maybe ill just stick with the stingers. the snuffers ss look pretty sweet but idk. everytime i think i come close to picking the snuffers i start to think about the stingers and how easy they are to resharpen. does anybody have any pics of animals taken?

    I have found the SS Snuffers a little hard to sharpen. The ones I got needed sharpening out of the box.

    I'm sure you'll be happy with the snuffers. However you statements about bigger is better is logical, but not always truthful. It's hype imo.
    The best trails I've ever had where from a 2blade. Not saying the snuffers aren't great heads, because they are, just making a suggestion
    that you might not want to get rapped up in the bigger is better mentality.

    Also, just go get a cheap little lansky or gatco sharpening system.. You can pick one up about the same cost as the snuffers or stingers, then
    you'll be able to make both of those heads scarey sharp & last a lot longer.

    i know its all about shot placement for blood trials but i think since(this is just what i think im probably wrong) that since the 3 blades of a snuffer ss is connected at the its gonna make a hole instead of a slice. see what im saying? i dont know how to put it lol. i have a lansky now i think and thats how i sharpen my stingers. but the bleeder blades are a pain.

    ^10-4. It's always fun seeing a new type of hole.

    RFA Phoenix is a bad ass 3blade too. Indestructible.

    I don't think you will see any more blood on the ground with a snuffer than with the Stinger. But that is just my personal opinion.

    You said that you're not made of money since you're still in school. So I have to ask, why switch? The Stingers perform well as stated by all of the above posts. If you're just looking for a new "toy" be honest about that. But you're not going to gain anything in terms of blood trails by going to the Snuffers. Shot placement is EVERYTHING! Save your $$$ and use it for something good, or just bank it.
