??? but I think there going to run out of menacing broadhead brand names before 2020.
I agree - They were in a set i picked up off of craigslist. They look good and have a 1.25" cut on them. They are cheap on E-bay but hard to find in the store :confused: Just wondering if i should try them out this year on bear...

My old buddy shot a doe with them at 50 yds 4 years ago I believe put a huge hole in her. They flew great for him but the point bent over pretty easy

I heard that, for some reason, in certain jurisdictions they are considered barbed. :noidea:

In most cases, when the hype of a bh is dead, don't use it on large game! Bear deserve better, so does other animals, use what is proven to be a game getter.

Got a set of 6 for $10, they are cheap enough to not worry about a bent head.

So because something is not hyped up its not good to shoot :confused2:
I guess i better get a new bow... :p

all kidding aside,

I understand they do and have put down animals, i got a STEAL of a deal for them. Regularly $30 for a pack and i picked up TWO packs for $10 from someone who had a shoulder injury and was basically giving away all of there equipment.

I normally shoot Muzzy 4 blades but was really interested if these would out preform the muzzys or be considered an upgrade. :thumbs_up or :thumbs_do

I took this bear with a Crimson Raptor 100 grain head. I would use them again, and recommend using them as they are good heads and will fly good with a stiff arrow.

good heads

They shoot well and are good killers. Like some said they are considered barbed in some states. I can't use them in my home state.

UPDATE...

They group well, just like any other BH out of my bow. But im convinced that any well tuned bow will shoot BH's just like FP's... They seem to be a bit noisy and slow the arrow down a bit because they spin FAST the second they are shot... I guess the design is doing what it is supposed to do.

They are cheap on E-bay and sell for $10 a 3pac all day long :shade:


ANyone else have anymore info?
