The foundation released some edge retention test on a few broadheads. They gave the pre-shot and post-shot on a cape buffalo hunt done in July

I added the difference to the table to look at the edge retention difference. very surprised by the iron will.

(The numbers are given in gram force to cut a specific material for testing edge retention) The test media is a certified test media. BESS

The variances are interesting. I shoot silverflames and i do think they hold a edge fairly well.
Like sdonx asks:
But what to the actual numbers mean? Like with silverflames, what does 91 and 163 represent?

Interested in what the numbers actually are? Or what they mean, I guess.
I'm sorry I didn't even think about that. The numbers are an lb force given in gram to cut a specific material for testing edge retention.

This is done on the cool testers that John Lusk has, right?

And for the price of Bishop, I would’ve expected a lot better!
yes.

I have an older tester. from the same company. Mine uses a lead shot for the weight. I modified mine to tie to the computer. it allows me to look at a graph as I add the weight till it cuts.

This is a german Kinetic 150gr.

Actually from a % standpoint they are awful. The lower the % the better the edge retention.

I think they did something wrong. Over a couple of years of testing grizzlystiks, the test I have showed between (average (250gf to 175gf) under 300 will shave hair. In the 175 range, you just slide the blades down the arm. very sharp. It would have said impossible for the grizzlystik to be 50gf.

my data on a Germain kinetic.
