    Swacker Broadheads

    Has anyone tried these broadheads, and how do they fly.

    I havent and dont plan on using them. If you look at them they have to flares off the blade almost to the back of the blades and there what open the blds. unless im mistaken. which means the head will be over 2/3 of the way penetrated before they can open, there is nothing else to open the blades but those, which means the blades wont be open until they are inside the body....so tiny enterance and prolly horrible penetration.

    I use the Sonorans, which are the same thing. (They just repackaged them.) They fly great, and the wild boar I killed a few months ago went only ten yards after bleeding all over the place. I plan on using them on Coues deer next month.

    I think it's a great design.

    They aren't going to give you the entrance hole of a Rage, but there is no doubt they will cut a wide swath going through the vitals of a big game animal. And if you are shooting a high enough KE bow to get them to exit, you will certainly get a good blood trail.

    they are the same design as the aftershock expandable b heads the open up in the animal no real entrance hole and if dont get a pass thru their wont be a blood trail.

    Even if it doesn't open (which is highly unlikely) it'll still make a 1" wide entrance cut, which ain't too shabby.

    I'd post a photo of that hog with a nasty entrance hole and blood all over the place, but I don't want it ending up on a PETA website or at the next congressional hearing on hunting. However, if anyone wants to see it, PM me.

    Hell yea post it up...I just dont see any conceivable way that it can open before it penetrates unless it opens in flight...which would be even worse.

    Swacker works great!!!

    I have shot 3 deer and 2 hogs with the swacker broadheads 100gr. Great entry/exit holes and even better blood trails than I have ever had with anything else. I will not shoot anything else. They also fly great too. Sight in with field points and did not have to re-sight for the broadheads. Have pics too...

    swacker/sonoran

    We have used them for years, on deer and hogs. They fly great, they work great, and have never had a failure. Because of the design, they have less chance of deflection, because they do have some penetration before opening. And, they are legal, with a 1 inch cut if they don't open. I know hundreds of people shooting a 1 inch broadhead, and yet no one advises them that they won't have an entrance hole, or exit hole, or no blood trail Try them yourself and judge it then, not by the opinions of some who have never used them. Go to the AT #2 antelope thread and ask some of them what they thought about that doe I used one on.

    Back when Swhacker was still sonoran, I used em a ton on everything from antelope to elk and loved them. The cut the heck out of an animal, and I've never had to worry about deflection because of the design. These broadheads work great, try em for yourself. Just bought another dozen so I don't have to worry about finding them again in the next few years.

    I'm all about the deployment system of a broadhead and the greatest efficiency of deployment of the blades. You can see that the blade fold forward on this broadhead and the 'trigger' is the base of the blade. That being said, like #2 poster commented, the broadhead will be inside of the animal when the blades are triggered to deploy and, furthermore, the blades will be pushing against the resistence of flesh during their deployment. Obviously the blade deployment will win the battle over flesh, but not without the cost of kenetic energy and velocity.

    Entrance holes are nearly irrelavant as compared to internal damage. You cut a deer through the heart with a great shot and you dont need a blood trail. That said, they actually open on contact as others. The force just propels them backwards and thus slicing as it deploys. Will it be like a Rage? Nope, but i have found they fly much better and generally ive had better results with them than Rage
