    Hey Whitey, have you thought about hitting up the broadhead companies and explaining what you are doing, send them the links to your tests. See if some if any are confident enough to send you a couple samples. Maybe even kiss their butts a little?

    The only manufacturer I have contacted was Trophy Taker, and that was only because in test 2 I buried one of my Terminals in an inch of bone and when trying to wiggle it out I broke it of at the threads instead of just chopping it out with a sawzall. I did tell them what I was doing, but no links or anything. Personally, I don't like asking those sort of questions from manufacturers of anything. Not really sure why, just not something I feel like I deserve, if that makes sense. Kind of like my family members telling me to try and publish this stuff so I make money off of it. Like I said in the beginning tests, these started out for my personal knowledge in a search for the best performing arrow weight out of my set up at the time, (59# D350). But I figured when I did them, I might as well share the data. And then it kind of morphed into what it is now, lol. Good thing I'm laid off, otherwise I wouldn't have time for all this.

    My response to this post and others similar:

    Just realized I need to make somethings abundantly clear to everyone who reads these little tests I have been doing
    1. I am not trying to make a name for myself, or get "sponsored", or have any alterior motives
    2. If you notice my previous two tests, same broadheads, different arrow weights
    3. Testing different broadheads, other than what Nontypical225 shoots, was not my idea. I volunteered to shoot other peoples heads for FUN
    4. I was a bit skeptical as to even posting these tests for fear, (not really afraid, but you get the deas), that it would turn into this, "You're not testing fair", or "You should do it this way", or any of that crap. If you don't think I am doing it right do it yourself. I started doing this testing for my own information, if I can help someone make a better choice on their broadheads this coming better choice on their broadheads this coming year, fan-f-in'-tastic

    I think that getting any sort of "free" stuff from the manufactures would taint the test.
    (Not disparaging Whiteys character here)

    Anything provided for "free" for testing always implies some sort of advertising, "pro" relationship etc.....

    This test is good as it is going.
    Whitey started this on his own, then got sent stuff from Joe Blow hunters (as far as I know) to try out.
    No commercials, no pro deals, no nothing.

    I like it that way.


    PS - Plus, if he advertises it too much he will be probably be sued by Rage. Facts getting in the way of marketing tends to make that happen.

    I would love for Rage to come after me for proving their heads are a "one and done", if that. Have fun squeezing that rock for blood guys.

    Okay, yes the best thread in a long while, I have read every post and test, BUT have you or will you try a Phathead? Not a Phathead SOB everyone knows that wouldn't last but a regular Phathead in 100 grain design!!!!!!!!!!! This broadhead doesn't have a big marketing ploy but with the .080 blade thickness and alot a following from elk hunters this would be very interesting.

    Phathead 100 grain anyone else.......................... ..........................

    Thank you for your time!!! I'm down to the Hellrazor or the Phathead

    Whatever dude, I shoot GR all the time and unless a blade opened in flight or your bow is not tuned they shoot accurate so don't blame the broadhead.also they are one of the few expandable that will shoot thru netting accurately.

    dont cry it will be ok. he isnt trying to tell you not shoot them just showing the results he had. and i did not think blades were supposed to open inflight kinda sounds faulty if they do that?

    Did you even read the final result of the GR's? They did very well and he confirmed they were accurate before shooting the second one. Basically, he implied that it was probably him and not the broadhead. Why so sensitive? If you would have read the whole thing you would have realized there was no reason to get butt-hurt.

    Dude, what are you talking about? The first shot? Noone cares about the first set of pictures. That was more to mess with DWS than anything. Did you not see the second set of pictures?

    To all you guys bashing Whitey...feel free to spend the time and money doinig this test yourself. I don't know how many times he's said this is just for fun. Don't get your undies in a bunch because your favorite broadhead didn't do so good in the test.
