No point just saw the commercial and everytime I see it I laugh. Wondering how many are using t3s been thinking about a switch to them

I bought a pack of T3 this year to try and hated them. It might be just me but I hate their spyder clips they are a pain.

Never thought about switching to them. I laugh at the commercial anyhow. However, If anyone wanted to supplement my income by letting me use them and endorse them....I still don't think I would switch.:tongue:

Didn't know about the havoc until you posted that. Interesting that they made a two blade though

Watch out on T3's I've had 2 ferrels break one on a miss, one on a doe the was a great shot. Emailed them, they asked for pictures which I provided then they ignored me 4+ weeks and won't respond. All I asked for was 1 replacement head.

I'm thinking about trying the montecs with a recurve might just use thunderheads though. I already have two.

I will stick to a machined steel head instead of their metal injected mold process. Here is a direct rib hit. About an inch of penetration. The MIM process is powdered steel, heated, compressed.:thumbs_do

Your not the only one, I along with many others had that happen as well. There are a lot of similar reports with G-5 heads. G-5's big claim of having steel ferrels are really just cast heads MIM as they call it, made from a really cheap powdered substance they call steel. About the same strength as cheap pot-metal, machined aluminum is much stronger.

That's why I stopped shooting g5. Shot them for 5 years and new they're had to be heads that didn't snap in half or the blades break all the time.

I shot a T3 into my block target and it was destroyed afterwards, so now I'm buying rage heads. Why use a broadhead on an animal that can't even hold up to a broadhead target.

Yep I was more disappointed in their CS after they said they'd handle it... Here's mine
