Thread: Axe Broadheads By Antler Insanity

  1. #1

    Axe Broadheads By Antler Insanity

    Got a pack of the battle axe and of the bone crushers today. These broadheads look amazing! They are both 2" cut. I know these guys have killed over 40 animals with them and are loving them. Cant wait to try them out this coming season PS: Their customer service is top notch also! UPS sent my broad heads to the wrong state and Scott (CEO) sent me free heads to make up for it! Very pleased with this company so far. I'll post up some feedback about how they fly. They say they will fly with field points passed 60 yards.

    They have great pics of them on the website & face book. Better than what I can take. Saw a buck drop in less than 50 yds just now on OC.

    not a fan of 2 blade. people need to learn that "total cutting surface" is more important than "cutting diameter". the only way i would use a 2 blade BH was if i was shooting a bow with lower KE and MO.

    The blades don't open until after it's in the animal. If you don't get a pass through, you won't get a blood trail.
    The Swacker is the same way. No pass through, no blood trail.

    I waited almost 3 weeks but they are getting them now so should be faster.

    I'll take a 2" cut over a 1.5" 3 blade any day. 2" of cut IS more cutting surface than 1.5". If you cut a 1/4" thick artery with a blade it doesn't matter how many blades there are. Cutting vitals is what's important. If I hadn't had a 2" cut back in 07' when I shot my 165" 10 point, I honestly don't think I would have found him. I hit the main artery across the back. To each is own though. If you've had good luck with a 3 blade, then good for you.

    You obviously don't know what your shooting then. Grave diggers open just like a spitfire from the front and you lose a ton of KE on impact. Grave diggers also don't use any bands. These open after they go in the animal to increase penetration. You don't lose any KE on impact with these. I'm no spokesperson for them but with a slightly quartering shot or broadside shot, there's no way an arrow won't at least put a huge hole in the opposite side of the impact. Axe has taken modern technology and tried to make it better. Guess we will have to wait and see what they do next hunting season but I can tell you this, they have killed over 40 animals with them in one year. These heads will most likely get pass thru's even with 40 ft lbs of energy. With 76 ft lbs like I have, they will be sick!

    actually you dont have a clue apparently they open the exact same ....after entering the animal...so yes just like a grave digger as i stated...dont believe me pm dale ...curved blades as a grave digger ..and grave diggers dont open like a spitfire ...again who doesnt know what they are shooting .? its a copy with an o-ring...im sure they will do good ..just as the grave digger has ... copying a design is the greatest form of flattery

    wrong, a 3 blade 1.5" cutting diameter broadhead provides 2.25" of total cutting surface. last time i checked, 2.25" is larger than a 2". by the way, i shoot a 2" 3 blade Grim Reaper which provides a 3" total cutting surface. like you said, shoot whatever you like and are comfortable with.

    Nevermind

    Mine came today. Got a set of each. The AXEs look like a sleek grave digger. Which on sethro's broad head shoot out did awesome.
    Looking forward to testing them out.

    I currently shoot the grim reaper SS so ill see how they stack up. Weather permitting.

    I think these will perform.great! Little nervous about the bone crusher not having any cut on contact tip. Penetration won't be an issue though.

    Lots of broadheads don't have COC tips. Ulmers, Ramcats, Rages, ect. But all seem to get job done.
    Think the extra COC of the Axe will just be a bonus

    Only worried about the entry hole since they open after entry.

    They look similar to the ''not on the market anymore'' Hypershock. Hypershock did a great job for me last year at turkey. So i ordered yesterday the battle axe to give it a try next spring. I have no doubt it will be as good or better than my Hypershock for turkeys.

    i disagree as a multi head blade generally has a much lower mechanical advantage. in short this means your arrow does less work with a given amount of energy than a head with higher mechanical advantage.

    it's not really an arguement but rather basic physics.
