Thread: NAP Bloodrunner Broadheads

  1. #1

    Arrow NAP Bloodrunner Broadheads

    I should have known better than to have bought any heads that use little bitty screws to hold the blades in place.

    First head lost a screw after hitting a Block target a few times and the blade was flopping around so I sent NAP an email and asked them for some help and advice...two weeks, no reply yet.

    Second head lost a screw in flight (after I had checked all the screws) on the 3rd shot into a Block target. The blade flopped around and on impact broke off and broke the anodized aluminum head itself.

    I have one left that I'll put in a display case since I'm sure they won't be on the market for very long maybe I'll have a collector's item some day.

    Thanks for the post. I was considering getting some Bloodrunners, but I think I will stick with my Grim Reapers instead; they have not let me down yet.

    Sorry to hear about your bad luck with the Bloodrunners. I must have ones that had better lock tite or something. I have shot mine hundreds of shots and have no problems. I've even skipped a few into dirt shooting at gouphers and they faired very well.

    I took a couple of mine apart just to look them and the screws were abviously had lock tite on them. Maybe the ones you have got missed. I would suggest calling NAP and asking. Maybe they will replace with better ones.

    NAP Bloodrunners

    I was very tempted to try these out myself but decided to put them on my "mental watch and see" list. It's looks promising but maybe there are bugs to be worked out first.(?)
    I handled them at BPS a couple weeks ago and they seemed pretty solid.

    I 100% HATE NAP. I have been trying to call them since march everytime I either leave a voicemail and never get called back or they just ignore my call. Once they even picked the phone up and hung right back up. I will never buy ANYTHING from them again.

    They now include a practice head which solves any problems on targets.

    I support NAP 110%.

    This has been my experience too. After a couple of shots into a Block target one of the screws came out. What a shame cause they shot great. I expected these things to be built better at over $13 a piece they shouldn't have done this. I haven't tried to get ahold of NAP yet. If I get any results I will post a reply. I do use the NAP 360 rest and like it. I guess I will stay with fixed broadheads for now.

    Really? I've called them a total of three times in the last 3 weeks or so and someone answered by the 2nd or 3rd ring each time.

    My practice head has been shipped. I've shot one of the broadheads a couple times into a layered foam target and it flew great! I'll shoot the practice head a bunch before putting one in the quiver

    Definitely want to tighten those small screws before shooting them. I put a tiny amount of blue Loctite on them as insurance.

    Are there any 3-blade Rage users who also use NAP Bloodrunners with good results?

    The write-up on Bloodrunners makes them sound like a good plan.

    Just screwed some onto my Easton Full Metal Jackets.

    Tapping the arrow against my hand I can hear it rattle, is that normal guys?

    It is impressive that is for sure. Just not sure if the rattle sound is normal. I assume it is as it has to be somewhat loose to open up.

    BTW: I checked all the screws and they were tight.

    call Chris Kozlic @ 708/488/2500, he is their tech guy and will take care of you quick,
    just after you call make sure to hit 0 for a live operator, they will connect you to him, best customer rep. I've every talked to, had a new rest in the mail and received it in about 3 days at no charge, when I had problems tuning it, he walked me through it. Now everything works fine. He'll hook you up.

    Its not too bad, its the blades against the ferrule. Believe it has to be because to open up as its spring loaded and if the blades were tight, it may prevent it.

    I just wanted to confirm it was normal as last night was the first time I got to play around with some. Doubt you will hear it when you shoot.

    BTW: Thanks John for confirming it was normal!

    You can either call or email NAP about the practice heads and they will send one to you. I think there may or may not be a shipping cost, but regardless, they have addressed and will address any of your concerns. They are great people and are wanting EVERYONE to be happy with their products.

    So far the only thing I can attest to killing with these broadheads were a bunch of hogs. Illinois starts soon, so I will be anxious to get some "Blood Running

    Smile Nap took care of me

    HI ALL

    NAP contacted me based on my comments on AT. WOW, talk about being proactive. They sent me 2 packages of Bloodrunners and a pack of practice heads. I am 100% satisfied with NAP's handling of this problem and will continue to purchase and use NAP products. NUFF SAID

    Had a similar issue with the target practice and broadhead breaking. I sent an e-mail to them about the issue and they responded the next day with free pack of replacements and a practice head. I was impressed with the quick and responsive service... I may need to think about their drop away since their service is one I can count on. Very impressive!

    I am just wanting to hear about the damage in the field... who has seen the work this broadhead does on deer? I haven't been lucky enought to put one down yet this year.
