They look ot be a solid construction, and from the description sounds like they are possibly made by G5. Who has had experience with these heads?

Yes, made by G5... in some of their stuff it even mentions "monoflow technology"

I like Strikers, so these should be pretty good, too

If they're "generic" strikers, I wonder if they're good enough for my bowtech......:embara:

From Cabelas site

Copperhead Broadheads
Just like its namesake, the Copperhead will strike quietly and fatally from where you're hiding. The Copperhead is built on a rock-solid 17-4 PH stainless steel ferrule using Monoflow™ technology with a black oxide finish from tip to thread. The blades are the sharpest German blades available. They are .030" thick, made of 420 stainless steel and covered with a special proprietary coating to keep them sharper for a longer period. The three-blade design has a 1-1/16" cutting diameter and 100-grain weight. The proven trocar point is molded into the broadhead to provide amazing strength and accuracy, while the blade retention system has been proven under the harshest hunting conditions. When combined, the Copperhead will provide you with bone-crushing strength and surgical sharpness. Each broadhead is rotationally tested to ensure the strictest quality in straightness to yield unmatched accuracy. Cabela's urges all customers to handle these Copperheads with extreme caution – they might bite back.
From some of the language used like Monoflow Technoligy I assumed they are produced by G5, but who knows. Interesting design.

Bass Pro Shops uses simmilar language to describe their heads.



This sleek, technically advanced replaceable-blade broadhead represents the ultimate in durability and sharpness. Its precision ferrule is all stainless steel, configured using patented MonoFlow™ technology to ensure superior strength and flight performance. The super-sharp German steel blades, full .030" thick, are securely locked into the ferrule and will remain intact even in the toughest conditions. Cut-on-contact tip for deep penetration. Wide 1 1/16'' cutting diameter.

Looks like a way to get Strikers for a little less, like $10 a pack less.

I dunno but I put the bass pro black out blades in the ferrule from a striker and they were loose, didn't try it the other way around though.

I believe from their descriptions both the Blackout and Copperhead are manufactured by G5. Does anybody have experience with these heads?

They could be made by Wac 'Em. G5 copied their design off of Wac 'Em, which is made in Utah.

I shot them last season and they flew fine shot one deer worked well
my only hesitation would be materials there expandable used to be made by rocket all pieces were interchangable but the cabella's furel would bend on impact and the rocket did not I am going to compare them with the striker this year just haven't done it yet

A buddy of mine used the strikers last year, and tried the copperheads this year. He had no problems with them. Said they performed just like the striker.
