I used the muzzy 100 grain 3blade last year with good results. The only complaint I had was that the blood trail was not as good as I would have hoped with chest pass throughs and really sharp blades. Do any of you who shoot the 4 blade feel it gives better blood trails or is it 6 of one half dozen of the other??
Thx

I shot 3-blade Muzzy's for years and switched to 4-blade 100's the year they came out. A 4-blade will theoretically give you a better blood trail than a 3-blade, but it always boils down to shot placement. I don't think you can go wrong with either head.

The best thing about Muzzy's is the blade retention - I never had that fear while dressing out an animal: "I wonder where that other blade is?"

I have been using muzzy's exclusivly for the past 12 years and have used both the 3 & 4 blade units.

Personally I have not seen any larger of a blood trail when using a 4 blade but like it was mentioned above, it all boils down to shot placement. I personally prefer the 3 blade heads.

I have shot lots of big game animals (moose/bear/deer) with a 3 blade muzzy and trust me there has always been more than enough blood to track with!

I used the 3-blade last year and was thinking of going to a 4 this year but my 3-blade seems to fly a little better. Has anybody else noticed a difference with these heads??

I am shooting muzzy 3 blades this year. I couldn't find the muzzy 130 gr 4 blades I like to shoot anywhere so I went with the 3 bladed heads. Not sure if an difference yet but we shall see.

I was at Dick's yesterday, and they only had 3 blades in any kind of broadhead. While the idea that four blades cuts better than three sounds good, it also occurs to me that three blades will hit less resistance and pass through harder.

We could start a ballistics thread like the ones on 10mmtalk.com comparing all the different calibers and loadings that border on theological dissertations.
