What are your specs on your bow?



I have been shooting them for awhile and have no problems.

They do everything an expandable broadhead is supposed to do....fly accurately, and cut a large exit hole. Just try to stay away from the shoulder, and take shots on deer that are mostly broadside. You definitely want to try (just like with ANY type of broadhead) to try to get the arrow to at least stick out the opposite side of the animal. There won't be much to the bloodtrail if you don't get a passthrough with an expandable, because they don't open up until they are fully inside the animal. With the draw weight you're shooting, you shouldn't have a problem though.

Good luck to ya.

Sorry, Kraig, but I disagree with this statement. A cam-action expandable broadhead like the Snyper or Rage creates large entrance and exit wounds.

The Shockwave's are awesome heads. I've used them for the last three years with excellent results, all quick kills and very good blood trails.:wink:

blindfly69,
Sounds like you lucked into some good broadheads! :thumb:

They're excellent for deer and very accurate! I own both the Shockwave and the Scorpion XL, but have only had one shot/one harvest with the Scorpion XL. :) As yet, I've not had an opportunity to use the Shockwave.

Good hunting, Bowhunter57
