I shot 4 deer with em last year. All pass throughs, they fly consistently, and can be resharpened easily and as sharp as you want to get them. I can't find a reason to use anything else!:darkbeer:

I'm trying them for the first time this year after using another head for the past 21 years. Hopefully i'll have a report for you soon after Oct. 1 !!
I've been very pleased with how they fly in practice anyway and they do resharpen easy.
Hopefully you'll get a few more replies today.I'd like to hear about them myself.

Shot 6 whitetails last season with them and they performed great. Longest track was maybe 70 yds and they fly great. Easy to sharpen etc.

How are you guys resharpening them? Do you need a diamond flat stone? I have a flat stone, but its not diamond. I also have a Klawhorn sharpener.

How are the blood trails?

Flat stone is fine. finish on a very fine stone.

Blood trails are good. I only had to follow two, the other 4 dropped in sight.

After work I stopped at the pro shop and picked up a package of Hellrazors. I'm impressed so far. They are extremely sharp! They are probably the sharpest broadhead I've handled out of the package. Saturday is our opener - we'll see what happens:)

I use a flat mill file first and then transition to my diamond stone.

I'm trying the Hellrazor broadheads this season as well. So far I'm impressed with how true they fly and how easy they are too sharpen. More to follow once I take a deer this season.

This is 7 for 7 with Hellrazors. I shot this guy on 10-6-09 at 9 yds. I watched him pile up in under 50 yds. There was a steady blood trail right up to him.
So far all 7 have died in under 60 yds. With an average of approx. 45 yds.

hell razor

I bought two packs when they came out, they flew good but they were louder than most broadheads. So loud I did not buy anymore and only used them a few times.

Thanks for sharing! How was the blood trail?

I talked to NAP about the hissing issue and this was their response:

"Anyway, I noticed that your using 4” helically fletched vanes; that’s the problem right there. You’re spinning the broadhead too fast and creating the noise in the process. The HellRazor has a lot of blade area which makes for great penetration and is very quiet if you spin it at a reasonable RPM. Once you got enough rotation to properly stabilize an arrow, any additional RPM just creates noise and drag. A lot of people think more is always better; trust me, it isn’t! I know this because I spent six years developing the Quik-Spin vanes and tested it with all offsets and helical configurations is sizes from 1.5” to 4”."
