Got a ? for you all. Which is better, the stinger or the stinger buzzcut? They will be used on deer and turkey.

I shot the regular Stinger's for a while and got rid of them. They are easier to sharpen b/c they lack the serration's. Some people will tell you the serrations cut better, they actually tear not cut. Both will work just fine.

The regular blade requires less energy and penetrates much better. Anyone that has seen a 4 blade wound knows the buzz is not required nor is desired. They can cause the arrow to kick out if they hit and grab at the right (wrong) angle.

Sorry but I disagree with that. I've put the Buzzcuts thru 5 deer and not one problem. They blew thru the same as the stingers did and left a better bloodtrail

are you guys resharpening these and replace the bleeders ? the reason i ask is im going to maybe buy a pack today. i shot the buzz cuts about three years ago killed a couple deer but after the heads where used i gave them away at the shop. so i never did anything with them. i am looking for how to maintain the heads once they get shot. i know how good these are and the warranty thats why im thinking of shooting them again

The warranty covers everything. You just mail the pack to them and they mail you a new pack no questions asked.

Mike Sohm (THE Mr. Magnus) shoots the buzzcut. Good enough for me. Buzzcut 4 bladers for the compound and Buzzcut 2 fer's for the longbow.

Thanks for the info, I think I may give the buzzcuts a try. Just wonder if they are easy to resharpen?

I've shot the 2 blade Stingers for awhile now but this year switched to the 2 blade Buzzcuts and like them better for the amount of damage to tissue that they cause. Last weekend I got a Mulie and a Turkey with them. The deer was hard quartering away at 35 yards - arrow entered behind last rib and exited thru the front shoulder burying almost to the fletching in the ground. The deer went about 18yards and fell over. The entrance/exit and damage inside was incredible. The Buzzcut looks and feels like it's still new. The Turkey was at 30 yards - arrow went thru right wing-the bird and almost completly severed the left wing at the shoulder - went about another 10 yards and was stuck halfway into the ground. It too is still sharp and looks new.
I use a stone broadhead sharpner on them made for 2 blade heads (forget the brand) and with only a few strokes on each side they are as sharp or sharper than right outta the package.
Plus they shoot just like FP's outta my bow.

I'm carrying both this year and hope to shoot one with each to compare. I will post results if when I'm successful.

Results are in. I prefer the Buzzcut. Just my personal opinion. Both worked well and did the job but the Buzzcut just seemed to work a little better in my opinion.
