Picked up some 150 grain Magnus stinger heads . Very sharp at the moment but by the time I am done testing them out I bet I’ll need to sharpen them. Which sharpener should I get for these heads? I’ve never sharpened broadheads before.
Thanks, Isaac

For similar broadheads (like Muzzy Phantoms) I have had good luck with Lansky sharpeners. Have not sharpened the Stinger but it should work the same.

Some wet stones would probably work well, but a paper wheel with some compound on it attached to a bench grinder works amazing!

I’ve sharpened lots of Magnus stingers, 2&4 blade, with a Lansky. Works great.

Just ordered a Rada Wheel sharpener . $10.00 on Amazon. Might as well start there. Can’t beat the price. If it doesn’t work I’ll look into a more expensive option. Any recommend wet stones for putting a nice finishing touch on the blade?

You won't need to put a finishing touch on them. I have a rada wheel, 2 or 3 Lanskys, several files, 5 or 6 accusharps, jewel sticks, and a couple others. All I use now is the Rada Wheel.

With the Rada Wheel.Should I leave the broadheads on the arrows while sharpening? Or do I disassemble?

If you have the 4 blade stinger then you will want to take them apart to sharpen, the bleeder blades are small enough and can be a bit of a pain to sharpen. You can take the broadhead apart while the ferrule is still on the arrow, you will need to take the blades off in order to properly sharpen the back side edges.
